One of the few places where adults and teenagers can have fun. A few thrill rides to choose from. A visit to the old underground gold mine is also a must. Check the rain prediction before you go!

Old mining town of days gone by. Reminds a lot of Pilgrims Rest except that it still works and shops are open. Love the old buildings. Can get a bit overcrowded on a weekend.
