The Trolley Tour is an overview of attractions available for you to pursue as you choose. They range from pre-Revolutionary history places through the Civil War battle grounds and cemetery into more modern history such as trains, city growth. Some places are 'across the river' and some places are the river itself for you to return to enjoy. The downtown history attractions have period costumed employees waving at you from their establishment. Great overview of venues you may want to explore later as well as learning history in a very easy way. Plenty of shopping and dining available pre or post Trolley. Check the Visitor's Center first, is my suggestion.
