Yes, our small city packs a big punch when it comes to things to see and do: small-town charm and friendly locals meld with world class amenities, sights and sounds to create a year-round destination. Soak up the warmer months on our sun-drenched beaches, then, when the weather turns chilly, bundle up and head for the hills and a winter wonderland sought after by visitors from around the world.

And don’t worry if you don’t get to see and do it all, we will always welcome you back again!
