This park is so beautiful! You really need more than a day to explore the park & see the Roosevelt homes, which are a must see. It takes you back in time when you tour the homes & beautiful Grounds!

Take tea with Eleanor and tour the houses. Total 4 hours. You can spend more time walking if you wish. If you take tea, do the paid tour not the free one. Much better.
