This is a lovely old home with many original pieces of furniture etc. beautiful gardens. You can tour on your own and it doesn't take very long to walk through. We bought tickets that included visiting the home. The Docents are very friendly and informative.

This is a great neighborhood park. Walking trails that are about 2.5 miles throughout. There is also the grand circle as well as many small areas. Its a great area to just go for a walk, a run or enjoy the National Celebration in August.

I am staying at Casa Magnolia right across the street from the park. We went walking on a hot day but it was cool on the shady paths. Neat neighborhoods and restaurants are nearby.
