Stroll the historic Strand District to get an appreciation of the city's glory days in the late 19th century. The commercial horse-drawn carriages clip-clop over historic trolley tracks and past elaborate brick facades fronting Victorian-era buildings that now contain shops and restaurants. Informative historical markers identify buildings around the district. Look for the Grand 1894 Opera House, which is still in operation.
The old dock area just north off Harborside Dr has been converted to house waterfront restaurants and museums.
