What's Great

Browse the shops on main street, take in old-time amusement rides, stop for lunch at the Wainwright Hotel. There’s town life, farm life, a school house and a hospital. Ride a train, a paddlewheel boat and a horse-drawn wagon.

Local Tip:

Dine in style on a moving train that will take you back in time, Tuesdays during the summer.
