  • This is the classic early 20th Century skyscraper that graces the center of town. It was built to house offices but also the rail station that is in the basement. It's not as busy as it was back in....  more »

  • Scheduled a tour online for terminal tower in advance (about $5PP). Staff was friendly and there was no wait upon arrival to the tower. Views were gorgeous! Did not feel rushed during visit; 30 minutes at the top is more than enough. Would highly recommend.
  • A beautiful scene inside and outside. Lots of stores and quick eats. Alot of history here. You can enjoy a day here..
