We saw the Alabama Shakes this past weekend, and while this isn't Red Rocks or the Gorge, this was a terrific outdoor venue. Big enough not to feel cramped, small enough you can still see the artists' faces on stage. The city is making a...More

I went to his house, watched the movie, saw his gravestone. learned a lot. It was not busy in the museum. I gather many folks come here to look at the art or shop the stores around the plaza.

This park has a great trail around it, with a cemetery, stage, benches, tables. and even little league fields in the back. Great for jogging, picnicking, or just walking.

Cemetery worth a look but the park as a whole was run down and had lots of dilapidated fencing. Shame really.

No. They will sell beverages there and won't allow you to bring your own to guarantee that you will pay crazy prices for water even. The lawn chair will be handy unless they over pack the event.
