There certainly are plenty of interesting shops and cafes, etc, to explore while you are here. Easy to walk around. Plenty of parking. On a nice day take your time to slowly wander around and enjoy the atmosphere.

A quaint little village with a bunch of tourist stuff to do. You can also find the basics here, from food to gas. Not a place to stay, but good for a day trip.
