Well done and lots for our kids to see and experience. There were more outside activities than I expected, but luckily the weather was accommodating.

Tour the park on foot, bicycle or drive through. You can march past the historical cabins used by the troops. Well maintained and clean. Well traveled with tourists and locals on a daily workout routine. The trails lead far and wide.

If you're driving, you can go as fast as you like and someone can narrate from the map. But easier, faster and more informative to park and take the tour for 1.5(?) hrs and have someone else drive and talk.
