Excellent walking area or you could have a horse drawn tour around the city. Very historic town with a long history, George Washington, James Monroe and other lived or worked in town. Great food town with plenty of excellent places for lunch or dinner.

We loved walking the town & seeing all the old buildings, homes & cemetery. I picked up brochers to read the history after we returned home. I love this type of history. If you are interested in war history, this is the place to visit.
