I was just there September 8th to 13th also looking at it as a possible retirement location. Iíll really like it and will probably settle there with-in the next 20 months so donít bid up the condo prices.

Try and take a ride on the free downtown trolley. Itís a great way to get a quick overview ofthe downtown. Take a walk through Falls Park. I really enjoyed listening to Sharon Gerber playing the Cello near the Starbucks located at the entrance to Falls Park. She was there on a Saturday evening but Iím not sure what her schedule is.
