Such a neat town. Cute shops, restaurants, nice people. A fun little day trip or weekend get away. Nearby is Fossil Rim and Dinosaur valley state park. Fun for kids and adults alike.

I saw some signs for Antiques but didn't go in those stores as its not my thing. Online search will give you store names. Maybe you can call if you are looking for something specific.
