Spectacular experience with magnificent views of historical monuments. If you like civil war history then this section of town is just one of many sites to see. Highly recommend you don't skip over this attraction.

Same advice as others. Look on one of the side streets. Be aware that it is a long walk and you have to double back to get to your car. You might want to drive it first and then determine if you need to walk certain sections. The statues can easily be seen from the car and the more interesting architecture is confined to a shorter section. It is in the interesting architecture area that you will possibly want to park.

We had heard the trolley tours were uncomfortable so we
asked the concierge to recommend a tour. We hired a lady
historian by the name of Gayle Spence and had a lovely
day or touring and wonderful conversation.
