breakfast tacos or a pastry served in the Main Street
District, where you can take in sculptural and fine
art displays, shop for antiques and take a historical
driving tour featuring some of the 1,800 historical sites
in the area!

Trail, a 145-mile road trip which includes historical
markers and magnificent fall colors sure to satisfy
