This area, full of old houses and cobblestone streets, is a step back in time. Everything is very well maintained and lets you imagine what it would have been like to take a stroll during the Revolution. Great place to relax.

Perfect for a romantic stroll, tree lined small streets and old colonial brick with different shutter colors makes this a wonderful place to enjoy. Take a carriage ride through here, then walk it for the best of all worlds.
