There could have been other points of interest I think in the city tour but the fort was amazing and we really enjoyed the mansion as well. Lots of historical relevance in our tours.

We bought our tickets online and it was super easy and convenient. When you get to the Visitor's Center, just go on out to the buses labeled Gray Line. They take care of everything out there. No real need to go inside except for the restrooms.
