Other than decor I didn't see any attraction there. And since I need 100 characters an nothing to say, I type this.

Nice place to spend an afternoon there is quite a bit to do in this area. Many restaurants and other activities to keep you busy!

It defiantly wasn't a "must see" destination but we happened upon it at the end of the main downtown strip. There was a jerky shop and cheese shop and I think a restaurant. It was cute. But don't plan it for a day attraction.

Glockenspiel was cute but needs updating. Many of the parts are old and not in the best of shape. Get's old fast. Bring back the candy store and Del Sol.

I think it's cute. I like that we can stop for a break and watch the story telling. It's free too and a nice break from walking around town

The only thing redeeming about this area is this is where there are some public restrooms. You'll most certainly pass it walking along the strip but there is no reason to stop.
