Not bad, very overrated by the locals. 1.5 rating By EIndiana ( Apr 28, 2014) There are plenty of good restaurants in the downtown area. There were also a few good places downtown to go out. Decent for the size of this town. There is a disappointing architectural tour. Everyone is talking about architecture everywhere. I guess it is nice that some major ar ...Read More chitects have built there, but the buildings don't look very significant. There are parts of the city that show obvious neglect, and parts that show a lot of investment. There are two Super Walmarts if that tells you anything. The only good place to shop is north of the city at an outlet mall. Nothing high end. The one mall in the city is empty. Read Less
