Stop here first! Air conditioned, bathrooms with a small changing station and every brochure you can think of for the surrounding areas. Free parking lot nearby. Right in center of Main Street. Friendly staff, a few gifts for sale. Open Saturday.

They receive you well and enjoy sharing information about their city. The hint for lunch was perfect and it seemed to us that the lady who welcomed us really does a great job.

Not only does it provide information for the local area, they provide great information for the wider area. I picked up several maps and paid for a CD for a locally self-guided tour.
