Edward Steves Homestead is worth the visit. A very interesting home from 1870. Tour in less than hour. Historians onsite to provide deep insider information. Fiesta gowns were on display and they were very interesting. Parking is available across the street from the home.

Great place to walk around and marvel at the homes. Don't drive there take the bus or taxi. A mix of styles which is great. This is not Newport Rhode Island, but very nice.

drinks were good, BUT make sure you take cash, only the art vendors take cards, you need to buy tickets for the food and drinks and to get in and they only take cash!

Throngs of people. Pleasant temps as there are plenty of shaded tree lined streets. Hundreds of food choices and drink venues! Please don’t bring your dog. Too many people stepping on them.

This is a great place to walk around in the afternoon. When we were done, we discovered an open air beer garden too. Off the beaten path and very cool

The homes are not open for tours. It's a neighborhood self walking tour so I presume you can go at anytime before dark.
