You expect a little town only to find a massive tourism hub with all the usual gas stations, restaurants, and fast food outlets everywhere on just a short distance, a bit like a highway transit centre where multiple highways connect.

To our surprise it was much like Youngstown, a lot of old derelict and worn out areas close to the city centre as new areas had developed further out. Still pretty though and a big university scattered across the heart of the city. Spread so far that a personal monorail type transit system runs around the university.
