    The Staten Island & Governors Island ferries are right next to each other, so from South Ferry, head to SI, and go on an adventure back in time to Historic Richmond Town. It's a trek well worth it.

    The candlelit holiday tour is lovely. I've been here twice now and both times were a beautiful blast to living in the past...

    This is a collection of colonial houses including the one of the oldest schoolhouses in America. Each year in September it's the Richmond County Fair with adorable pig races!

    Love it here. Hot tip. Lots of nook and crannies. Make sure you see everything. Look for special days and festivals. Lots of parking. Ask about the farm!

    Great time and will definitely go back. Was told that the Bennett Cafe was open and it wasn't, so had to go and eat offsite, but will definitely go back!
