Enjoy rock climbing, horseback riding, biking, fishing, bird watching, feeding the ducks, picnicking and much more. Journey to the past and discover living history. Discover a Quaker safe house for runaway slaves on the Underground Railroad. Wander throughout the residential streets and admire more than 250 years of architectural history. Venture into historic houses that are open to the public. Sip on sangria inside an 18th century estate or enjoy a Dickens production in a restored Victorian mansion.
