We walked through the Historic Huguenot Street and the signs posted were informative. However, I would suggest taking a guided tour to get the most out the area.

Huguenot Street is always open. You might not get into some of the old stone houses but you certainly can view them from the outside. There are also old headstones that are visible in a small cemetery on the street.
