  • So we found this place while on a trip when our other plans got cancelled last minute. This is a great place. The staff is super friendly and the scavenger hunt for the kids made the visit exciting for the kids (the kids also loved the playground). If you are into historical buildings and small villages, this is a must for your list of places to visit. Also, the gift shop has a lot of fun things in it, so be should to stop in there.
  • We have lived in this area for over 20 years and visited the Manatee Village Historical Park for the first time to attend our friend's wedding. We will definitely return soon. It is a fun historical park. There is a vintage steam locomotive train. The school house and courthouse are from the 1800's. The ceremony in the white clapboard church was heavenly. I'd recommend it to kids from 8 to 80!
