Lots to see, could spend a whole weekend just exploring. If you enjoy history, there is too much to see in one day.

We visited Heritage Park. It wasnt too clear on arrival where to park, nor where the entrance was, but we decided to follow the crowd. On a Wednesday, admission is cheaper. We were very surprised at the extent of the park, it is very large!...More

A must see, especially if you like history. Everyone we spoke to was energetic and excited to share their knowledge. We spent an entire day and could have used a few more hours. The car museum is outstanding. We really liked the antique Mack truck...More
