The trolley makes it easier for people to get from one end of town to the other (the trolley is enclosed). However, we have found that most of the people still walk (which is how the Winter Wine Walk got its name.) The majority of the tasting stops are within walking distance.

Parking is available at the elevator (which is near the check-in area), across from the bank, and near the memorial (corner of Mill and Church). There are also other small lots scattered throughout town and there is quite a bit of street parking available in the downtown area.
