We greatly appreciate the Review. Yes, in the Summer it is more challenging to stay cool, so going inside of all the buildings makes it more comfortable. The different buildings are like meeting characters along the way.

Only on Tues & Thur mornings. Most stops are inside businesses that are not open on weekend. Fast pace & distance traveled might be too much for some.
