Nice downtown to take a walk through. Little shops to stop in see some neat things for sale. Feels like your in an old time small town.

Although only a few blocks long, the Historic Downtown of Hastings is a great place to poke around. It has some great antique stores and restaurants. The frontage street has been recently worked on, so there is easy parking.
