    Check your copy of "This Week" from the Visitors Center to see if the "Storming the Palace" show is happening -- great first thing to do in town: townspeople protest the governor.

    The shear number of swords and guns on display is staggering. I loved how the tour guide role played and made the visit more entertaining.
