Maybe because my interest in the forming of the Federal Reserve here but on the paid four the guide said “I don’t know much about that” Really a lost opportunity to share history - also the organization of the club was not explored etc.

We visited on Thanksgiving and were extremely disappointed to find most things closed. We have been coming here for many, many years and the stores on the island have not been closed.

Took the 90 minute tram tour of the historic district. The guide was very good, informative and interesting. You get to go into two of the cottages on the tour. There is some walking and stairs to deal with but nothing drastic. Well worth the...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.
