Take a break from sightseeing and find a shaded bench in the historical Emancipation Garden, where the emancipation proclamation was read in 1848. Look for the bronze statue of a freed slave blowing into a conch shell, erected in honor of the momentous event that took place here. Kick back under the canopy of 100-year-old trees and enjoy a fruit juice from one of the vendors operating near this peaceful spot.

  • Quaint little garden area with a bunch of chickens running around. Nearby is the local stands to get some souvenirs, beware of the aggressive sales tactics once you get around main St.
