This was a very fun national park. We parked at the visitor center at the top of the hill. During our visit, we hiked at Bolivar Heights, the upper visitor center and then rode the bus to the lower town. It has been restored to its historical origins and we spent 2 hours exploring. I enjoyed the Civil War museums and the John Brown exhibits. The US Armory was also very cool. There is not much to eat in the area, so you may want to bring your own, but you will thoroughly enjoy the visit.
