Wonderful architecture. Amazing neighborhoods. Highly recommend the trolley ride. Our guide was great and gave us a wonderful overview of the history of the area.

“Winter in a summer vacation spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

We had a long weekend opportunity to take a last minute getaway. The historic district is a walkable area with interesting shops and activities even on a chill, windy day.

“Historic District”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Great Carriage ride and walk along the river front. It was cold so we were inside most of the time. We enjoyed the Cotton Exchange

“Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

Lots of stuff to see, drink and eat. Nice place to walk. The free brewery tour was both educational and tasty. I really enjoyed the fondue restaurant too.
