Take a ride on a trolley to see the town. Sounds great until the seats are really uncomfortable and the guide isn't all that great. I've been on worse tours and I've been on better. This one was just lackluster.

This tour is guided on a replica of an old electric trolley car. The information given by the guide is comprehensive and interesting. It's a fun, good-weather activity for the whole family and is reasonably priced.
