It;s a nice place to go although, I wouldn't like to be in those "torture features" in 1600's At least you'd have a "free sample" about the very hard life in that era

I think that while Trip Advisor has broken this into several categories, the Two Hall, the Square, and even Ordinance Island are basically a single stop. Walk through here at your leisure. You will want to see the town crier and the walking tour is...More

We were there for NYE so had to see the onion Drop. It's pretty cool, but get dropped off late (11?), watch the Onion, then head elsewhere. There's a couple of pubs to eat/drink in the square in advance, but both are very "skeevy".
