For those interested in old architecture and history, this is a "must do" tour. Stately old mansion well preserved to tell an amazing story. The grounds are well kept with beautiful flowers and foliage in the summer. Be sure to add to your "must sees"

Government House is the most beautiful building in the city. They are host to many great festivals throughout the year. In the summer months they offer free tours. A great way to cool off and get a taste of history.
