I think 2nd is correct.

the phrase we usually visit ...

indicates that it is a general truth and does not refer to a perticular instance(shown by the word usually)

eg the earth revolves around the sun.

Jimy takes rest after he exercises for 1 hour.(some thing that generally happens)

Jimy took rest after he had exercised for 1 hour(refers to a perticular instance).

jimmy is resting as he has exercised for 1 hour(refers to a perticular instance).
