Stopped to see all the decorations and unique uses of bowling balls. As a resident of Safety Harbor and an avid league and tournament bowler, I obviously could not miss out on seeing this fascinating house.

We took the kiddos out here for the day and absolutely enjoyed seeing all the unique and creative artwork. We walked around the grounds for a little bit taking pictures and enjoying it all before heading downtown to see the rest.

The Whimzey Bowling Ball House is something to see when visiting charming Safety Harbor. With many local artisans in the area, the Whimzey house is a showcase of sorts for some of these artists. Stop in and check out the whimzey.

Owner owns the Safety Harbor Arts Center, off 2nd St. it’s a glass menagerie, as you are greeted by a large painted elephant. Music, poetry slam, art store, gallery, VERY friendly crowd. Love it!

Daytime hours are best. Sometimes there are home tours for fundraisers but this is the artists home , so is not open to the public most times. Well worth the time to visit.
