  • We do as many of the presidential sites as possible wherever we go. We were thrilled to see one for Theo. Roosevelt, a favorite president. We knew to get reservations or at least check first but...

  • I visited Sagamore Hill many years ago when I was in elementary school, but have recently returned since it was one of the places where I could use my National Park Pass for a free tour...

  • Very interesting and educational experience. Theodore Roosevelt's house was intriguing, as you get a sense of how he was able to conduct business there during his presidency. The mansion is not elaborate like a Vanderbilt home, but you see the things that he valued, like the wild game that he hunted. There are also photos and paintings of people that he revered. The museum nearby is small, but well organized. The museum starts with his birth and early childhood, and ends with his death. Each set of artifacts contained a nice overall summary, then had further details if you wanted to learn more. The tour guide was pleasant and knowledgeable.
  • My dogs love the trail and it's a nice leisurely hike. I've been here year round so sometimes the path leading to the water becomes a bit flooded. If you're lucky you can spot a few deer among the variety of wildlife that calls the preserve home. This place is a hidden gem and it's never too busy. It's the perfect spot to sit on the beach and watch the boats go by.
