We came in to check out the local architecture before it started the normal Florida afternoon thunderstorm. Wonderful works of art. Don't miss out and take the time to look at all the lovely sights.

Really nice hour or so diversion. Just a block off the downtown area. Gorgeous artwork. I had three eleven year olds with me and they found it awe inspiring.
