We've always wanted to see this television icon and made the journey. Great fun. Kids were fishing and people walking. It would be a great picnic stop.

Glad we stopped. Very cute. My son enjoyed climbing on the different levels inside the whale, the fish, & the turtles. Suggest bringing a picnic lunch.

It's old and it's kitschy but it is worth a stop if you are driving by. I am glad we didn't miss it. The lady that ran the gift shop that day was very informative and I could tell she enjoyed filling the tourists in...More
