The whole scene is akin to come out from photos from our parents generation. It was well-maintained, as it was nearly sunset, I did not managed to visit the entire place.

Part of what I liked about the Sugar Museum was the ride on the train out to the mill. It has its own stop. This gave us a little view of the countryside in daylight. The museum is free. It is a self-guided tour. There are whimsical sculptures of animals and fantastic creatures made form old machine parts in several... More

The whole area was rather deserted/ quiet/ empty on a weekday afternoon, and... More

There are plenty... More

Spend a... More
