To stand in the location in which slaves were sold, Rosa Parks broaded a bus, and the city's heart of commerce was absolutely amazing. You can actually see the state's Capitol building, the Greyhound bus station in which the Freedom Riders came in on, the Riverwalk were slaves came in on was absolutely amazing.
