Chihuly then park?

Hi, we went to the Dali Museum last year and enjoyed it. Afterward we went to a nice waterfront park, walked around, went to the Vinoy hotel and enjoyed the afternoon. How far is this area from the Chihuly Musuem? Any great places for a light lunch in that area (either in park area or near musuem)? Thanks

The Chihuly is within a block or two from the Vinoy, and across from N. Straub Park. There are a good number of restaurants on Beach Drive. My personal favorites are the Parkshore Grill and Moon Under Water, but there are at least 8 or 9 others to chose from

Thank you! Is parking an issue in the area?

There are parking meters for angle parking on the west side of the park, and parking meters for parallel parking on the east side of the park. I've rarely had a problem finding a parking spot, but that will vary with time of year, day of week, etc. There are also at least 2 or more large parking garages in the downtown core.

The Chihuly moved. It is now on Central Ave and most people would not find it walkable from The Vinoy or The Dali or The Museum of Fine Arts. There is a cafe inside The Dali and The Hangar restaurant is inside the Albert Whitted regional airport which is more or less across the street from The Dali.

Thanks for bringing me (and everyone else) up to date on the Chihuly. Didn't know it had moved. Don't know know they moved all that artwork without something breaking.
