Use some image optimization on the header. It could easily be under 30kb and appear the same, rather than its present 165kb (which will make dial-up users very unhappy ... or leave).

Don't change the font style on mouseOver with your upper links - it just makes the whole menu jump about horizontally.  The color change is adequate.

The blue links on the green footer need to be a visible color - white, maybe?

Use some padding around the images in the home page content.

About - holy smoke! You need to create smaller versions of those images that can be clicked to show the large versions.  Even on DSL that page took a while to download 600kb of images.  Anyone on dial-up is not going to wait for that lot.
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.

The contact page is really fairly cluttered. The contact information, after which the page is named, probably shouldn't be at the bottom of the page. Add borders-blocks of colour just aren't cool. Add some spacing to the images-the way that they just run up against the text right now doesn't look very good. Your use of an IFramed Google Calendar isn't very professional either. The font should probably go sans-serif too. Your navigation might want to be re-thought out, maybe make them tabs? The way they are now isn't very pretty. Finally, on your contact page, in the public transportation section, make it so the images don't stick out of the sentence so much.

Just a thought: the text size is HUGE in IE's default medium setting
