I went there with some family members to see the Executive Mansion decorated for Christmas. It was lovely.

The mansion is always a pretty good tour though I'm not sure of the schedule, however it is a must see at Christmas - go after dark to see the lights on the grounds!

Don't get me wrong the house is very cool, and historic. But you see only a few rooms downstairs on the tour. The tour leaves you with the, "That's it?" feeling

If you get the opportunity to tour the first floor inside, dont pass it up. Tours are offered around Christmas and around gubernatorial inauguration.
