We just happened to visit Old Town while they were hosting a weekend Art Show. The art selections were varied and we saw some very good pieces. The booths were set up right down the main street which made browsing very easy.

A great romantic place to sit watch and drink with a cuppa coffee. The deck is refreshing and entertaining. A lot of people roaming in and out of the area.
