The Coral Castle was well worth the visit! This place has been compared to Stonehenge and the pyramids because no one knows how he moved stones that weigh more than a ton. Be sure to watch the Billy Idle video of "Sweet Sixteen".

Coral castle is a great attraction. The physical feat of building this place is impressive, even more impressive were the tour guides enthusiasm and story telling skills. I would highly recommend the coral castle.

It’s cool, but weird. The revolving tours mean you don’t get a chance to just walk around and check it out. But you do have someone there to answer questions and tell you their mediocre jokes.

A cool pile of rocks with a cool backstory, amazing how it was built and moved, it is expensive but it is worth is if you have the dough. (it is not that pricy but it is a prety short experince)

A typical drive from the airport is approximately 45 minutes. With ongoing construction you might need to add some time.
