Once known as the Victory Highway, the highway-era motel strip boasts period neon lights and original architecture.
Stop by the Wells Chamber of Commerce and pick up a brochure of the Historic District before you tour the century-old buildings. The historic main street once served as the center for business and recreation. Some of the houses in Wells were constructed of railroad ties and examples of these can be found on 8th and 9th streets. Though the area was devastated as a result of the February 2008 earthquake, the brochure reveals the history of the buildings that remain.
The surprisingly challenging nine-hole Chimney Rock Golf Course in the small town of Wells is classic golf at its best. Measuring more than 6,100 yards for a par of 70, the Chimney Rock course boasts an enjoyable layout that is a pleasure to walk. The fun and challenging design is laid over fairly flat terrain and incorporates such features as serene ponds, an abundance of mature shade trees, sand traps and lovely landscaping. The greens are impeccably maintained and rank among some of the best in the area.
