Old train cars with tons of character inside. Dunking donuts was nice and the little souvineer shop areas were very interesting and cool aswell. Stop by for a nice little rest and snack.

Fast food and overpriced tourist centered shops. Also not the cleanest place around. Needs a refurbishing.

You can get all kinds of food there , buy gifts, sit down and relax , get out of the heat. Mcdonald's bathrooms are the cleanest. Love dunkin donuts. Love the Mocha ice coffee. Just a cute place to stop shop and eat.
