Park
“Historic city park with lots of mature trees, outdoor pool, tennis courts, playground, public art, amphitheater, and special events. The Stage at Island Park, a community theatre, and a YMCA are next to the park. Walk east on 5th Avenue and you will come to the park. Downtown begins at the north end of the park.”

Cafe
“My all-time favorite coffee anywhere! It's just roasted so well here. Get any bean siphoned-brewed and you will not be disappointed. If you're into lattes I would suggest their Fargo Fog tea latte. I could go on and on with suggestions with this place but really everything is just so good!”

Casino
“Great place for a Guiness and on weekends there is live music. A much more casual atmosphere here and anyone can enjoy a good time here. But, it gets packed on weekends by 9pm so come a little early and plan on staying if you want a booth closer to the music.”
