Antiquing and other nostalgia

Old Town Orange is a blast from past, straight out of 1950’s, complete with 100+ year old Drug Store/Soda Fointain/Lunch Counter. Many Hollywood Movies have been filmed on the Orange Circle, 1996’s “That Thing You Do” Starring Tom Hanks had scenes filmed in Watson’s Drug Store’s Famous Soda Fountain. Many other restaurants and bars on the four corners of the Orange Circle in Old Town. Oh, I almost forgot, there’s Great Antique Shops too!
