There is a little tram that for a nominal fee takes you through the historic district and points out some special houses.

A great tour around the historic district and it’s various cottages located on the island. Knowledgeable tour guide and comfortable ride. It’s well worth it and gives you an in depth overview of the stories behind the houses

Yes. They have sidewalks that are great for getting around all the historic bldgs. Not sure if the carriage would be accessible, it was hard for us to get in those.
