Much like the continuum transfunctioner, the mystery of Coral Castle is exceeded only by its power. This is Florida kitsch at its finest. Hard to explain, even harder to understand, just take the family or friends out here and prepare t...
This place is amazing! So filled with mystery and mystique. My family and I had a great time and were so glad we made the time to check it out. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. They seemed to enjoy answering our questions (as best they could) just as much as we enjoyed asking! The man w...
I'm not going to lie, this place is a little weird. A story of love lost and a man's undying devotion to woo back the love of his life are the driving forces behind a man who magically created this "coral abode".

It was a bit packed for this small attraction.. Some people breaking the rules (ex:climbing on top of the rocks, and some kids going crazy around us) kind of killed the mood. Our guide was friendly an...
This was such a fun place to visit when I was a kid and we went on school field trips. Earlier this year I went back as an adult and gained a whole new appreciation for it. A "home" built out of coral rock. Granted it's not a house like you might be thinking, but a...
