This is a very picturesque small town established in 1887 with redone brick paving on the main road to give it an old time feel. There are an number of nice restaurants and shops to browse through. Great for strolling after a good meal.

Great little market place. We found some gifts for the ones that matter and the people there were very nice. Prices were good and if you ask they will make deals.

I would definitely go for one of the Historic District B&B Higgins House the hotels downtown are not very nice at all. There is a good hotel out by the mall and I-4 (Springwood Suite) but it is 4-5 miles from the Riverwalk.
