My husband and I stayed 5 nights (10/12-16/04). I'd highly recommend taking the horse carriage ride and visiting the aquarium. Be sure to go to the Visitors Center when you first come into town. There is information plus lots of coupons available - free appetizers, desserts, etc. at many of the popular restaurants. You can also get coupons for the carriage rides, too. You can not pick the route the ride goes on - it's chosen by lottery just before you depart - so one company doesn't have any better routes than others. Go earlier in the day when it's not as busy. As far as the aquarium, I was really surprised how nice this place is. Anyone would enjoy this place! Ghost tour was okay but not as great as I expected. Also took walking architectural tour -good way to learn history. Get your walking shoes on....it's a great way to get exercise and see the town. Yes, we felt safe walking in the downtown (historic) area at night, too.
