The Old Courthouse is from the mid 1800s and is a classic to go visit, Huge rooms, airy porches, all the way nice. I didn't eat there, but did have a few beers there at the bar called "Lucky Charlotte"

You can get full meals and other snacks here, but it's also a great place for a coffee and some delicious cake (of which there are plenty of varieties). It's a very relaxing place, tables well-spaced out and plenty of board games available if you'd...More
