Stop in during one of the many festivals and shows. A few hours well spent learning new things about our history. Plenty of free parking on and off site. Big shows provide trolley service from some of the large churches nearby.

My first stop on the Southern Trilogy Tour. The tour guide was informative and interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed the Confederate Navy exhibit upstairs. I didn't know anything about James Dunwoody Bulloch until I came here. He's a fascinating man!
