This is one on the most beautiful places to walk and relax. Walking under the big oaks and visiting the old homes is something every one that comes to the island needs to do. Just wonderful!

Didn't see this comimg, but this was a fascinating place to visit. The place was a great look back to the early 1900's. The trolly tour was really reasonable, and our guide was excellent. Well worth the time and investment in a trolly tour.

We did the tour. It was very informative. Our tour guide was very good. Very scenic. We were able to tour several homes.

Loved seeing how the rich and privileged lived in their "cottages" and kept themselves sequestered from those below their status.

Beautiful old homes and buildings. The shops are great and they always have just the right little thing you are looking for. We always find beautiful and unique wind chimes. That is a must on our list!

Wow -we never knew ANY of this was here, nor did we know any of the history behind these magnificent "cottages." After some discussion, we decided to go ahead and splurge for the guided trolley tour. Apparently, we were not alone, as our tour filled...More

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.
