I don't think I sufficiently explained the way that people are not bundled up here. Is it possible that many people here don't even own any long-sleeved clothing??
What is it about southern men that makes them look so southern? The women look the same as northern women though. Yes it's a generalization, but it's true.
I'm not kidding! We're currently sitting indoors at a cafe. I'm wearing a long sleeved shirt over a t-shirt and I have my scarf on because I'm cold. A woman wearing a short sleeved sweater just sat down at a table outside! In the shade! She's not smoking or anything! Do these people have Vermont blood??
Places I can recommend:
Moon River brewing: get the pulled pork sandwich and a porter.
Rail Pub: divey, peanuts to be shelled onto the floor, some craft beers (ask about bottles).
Planters Inn: 4 poster bed! Huge room. Centrally located. Wine & cheese happy hour!
The Distillery: great diverse craft beer selection from all over US plus Belgium.
ShopSCAD: art for sale made by locals
Gryphon: classy little tea room across from ShopSCAD
Harris Bread Co.: 4.5 stars on Yelp but 3 locals waiting to get into a different breakfast spot a block away had no idea about it. (it's in the back) No line at all and excellent bread.
Colonial Park graveyard: great history lesson (tons of signs about the famous residents) and also beautiful and central
Sweet Melissa's: the only place to get a snack at 11pm. Hot dog stand outside (Jeff loved), pizza inside (I loved). A mixed crowd of folks out on the town but not at all rowdy.
