  • Coral Castle Museum

    Coral Castle Museum

    28655 S. Dixie Highway Homestead, FL 33033
    305-248-6345 It is a strange land that holds a castle of theories. For this castle is said to be carved from 1,100 tons of oolitic limestone and built by one man. This man weighed only 100 pounds. He stood barely over five feet tall. He used no large machinery. But this castle has walls more than eight feet high and a tower of more than two stories. This castle is furnished - with beds, chairs, tables, and fountains - all made from coral. And in considering the many theories of how this man came to build this coral castle - as you move beyond the castle's walls and gates - you will find that its diminutive builder, Edward Leedskalnin, was a secretive man. Through the coral castle's audio tour, you will hear his queer tale. Ed started building his castle for his 16-year-old fiancée, even though she left him along the way. They never wed, and he would spend nearly 30 years building the castle as a monument to her. You will learn that it will never be revealed how this place came to be, but you will agree with the icon signed by Ed, a Latvian native, at the entrance. It reads: "You will be seeing unusual accomplishment." More >>

    Gusman Center for the Performing Arts

    174 E. Flagler St. Miami, FL 33131
    305-372-0925 Old is the new new. Especially in a city like Miami, where historic charms are often bulldozed to make way for new school crap. Thank God for the Gusman Center for the Performing Arts, a shining beacon to Miami's glamorous past, smack dab in the middle of downtown. Erected in 1926 as a home for silent movies, this recently restored palace oozes charisma, from the red velvet curtains to the baroque balconies. The theater's simulated night-sky ceiling has looked down on the likes of Elvis Presley, B.B. King, Luciano Pavarotti and countless other notable names. Today, they host movie screenings, concerts, live performances and a whole host of other events. So get glammed up and spend an evening immersed in what once was. There's something to be said for the classics, after all. More >>

    Historic Sundy House

    106 S. Swinton Ave. Delray Beach, FL 33444
    561-272-5678 Historic Sundy House is one of the most gorgeous restaurants in South Florida, set in a restored turn-of-the-century mansion once owned by the mayor of Delray Beach and surrounded by a lush tropical garden that reportedly cost well into the millions. A stroll through that garden is worth the price of an expensive dinner. There are koi ponds, gazebos, waterfalls, and paths leading to a natural swimming pool where fish don't seem to mind the bathers. In its heyday, the kitchen was run by Florida whiz chef Johnny Vinczencz; when he left, he took some of his New World magic with him. The setting, however, is still unbeatable. More >>
