Best places to go and to do in Nagaoka

Outside of a few main attractions, Nagaoka does not have anything unique to offer to a visitor. There is a gigantic public park, the Echigo Hillside Park, which is nice; a lovely cherry tree park, which is great in spring; and a decent aquarium. Other than these it's mostly a bunch of historical shrines closely connected to the city and the prefecture, museums and memorials dedicated to the city's history. An unexpected find is the city's museum dedicated to the damage in WWII from the Allied firebombing efforts.  If anything else is a surprise at all, it's the utterly random dude ranch and alpaca farm a little way out of the city. What an unexpected sight! Also outside the town is a sweet little confectionary workshop that actually sells you Japanese confection making tools and also the technical knowhow on using them. During winter, it snows quite heavily, so the city becomes a destination for skiers. While nightlife spots and shopping opportunities exist, they are nothing to write home about. Finally, the city has a number of hot springs and natural mineral baths, almost all of which are tied up to a hotel or another.
