Honestly, skip it. It was fun years ago, they had ice skating, water shows, lengthy tours through gorgeous grounds, cute camping areas, restaurants, etc. Those days are over. It's a run-down shell of what it once was.

We had a great time seeing all the different Christmas trees and the decorations. We also enjoyed see all the pieces in their collections. We are planning on going back when it is a little warmer to continue the tour.

It's not there anymore
I'm looking to visit the chapel sometime in June. I will be travelling from Toronto, Ontario and was wondering what is the best itinerary for a trip there. I'm looking to do a 4 days travel, so 1 day at the chapel and the rest maybe in areas nearby. Is there an itinerary recommended by fellow advisors? My husband and I more interested in food and local culture. I'm looking to fly into a major airport and then drive around. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated!
