Train type cars on wheels with an informative tour of the city by a knowledge guide. Easy parking and uncrowded at least when I was there in the summer.

We take every visitor from out of town on this and it is always great to watch their expressions and listen to the stories and history. The tour guides are friendly and are aware that for many people this is their first time on the train and they never show anything but enthusiasm each time!!!
