The 99 (+) steps are located behind Government Hill or the Emancipation Gardens. Go toward the 1829 house and climb the hill to the right of it. Bring water with you because you wont realize it, but you will be very thirsty by the time you are up and then back down again. Be careful of the narrow streets. We had locals swearing at us for being in the road. It is VERY narrow. The steps are slanted downward which isn't a problem going up, but on the way down it feels more like you are falling down the stairs instead of stepping. Use the railing. Obviously this is not handicap accessible. Once you get to the top, go right and it will lead you to a view overlooking the down town area. This was a great view that was free. If you continue up the hill, it will lead you to Blackbeard's castle. The entrance fee was $10.00 per person and it was just a tower. We did not pay to go in, but you can get a nice photo of it from the gate.
