Cute small town feel with high end restaurants. If you're looking for something a bit fancier this is a great stop to add for a date night! My favorite restaurant is Winchester and Rye, the food is incredible and atmosphere has a romantic ambience. For a family friendly and fun spot treat yourself to indoor mini golf, arcade or axe throwing at Victoria Burrow! then walk down the local ice cream parlor for a sweet treat.
