    A paid pass is required to get in here, but it's totally worth it. The garden is one of my favorite places ever, and is especially beautiful in the spring when all the tulips are blooming.

    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.

    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.
