  • Really enjoyed this. A lot of area to cover, but flat. Large variety of homes to look at. Took me about 2 hrs to walk through with me stopping and reading everything. Bathrooms at entrance and drinks to buy available in gift shop. Gift shop had cute stuff.
  • We had a great time. There was so much to do for the whole family and it was free. We went on a day there was an event so it was a little more fun than on a regular day. Definitely worth checking out with or without kids.
