I guess I was a total history geek as a kid, because I loved it. Part of the reason was because I played the violin and one of the stops I made was at the violin maker's shop, and I got to see how they were made. I also liked the book binder, and the candy shop.
It's not all a fake town, some of the buildings are restored or preserved originals, like the old capitol building and the governor's mansion.
But I'm also a road side america fan-I love kitschy tourist traps. One of these days, I'll get to South of the Border.
