Amazing! Never thought I could get to the mills sooo close! Make sure you watch the into video - it will answer many questions you may have! Download the app and use it with your headsets as it tends to stop when phone screen goes off..

They introduce you to the area first in the office with a short video. Then you download the numbered stations on your phone. You hear about each station by pressing the number on your phone. It was a very interesting tour.

The place we checked in was basic, but the gal at the info desk was super friendly. The 20 minute intro video is worth the watch. The directions for the tour were perfect and the tour was very interesting.
