Lucy was on our list of Must See, She is a Gigantic Elephant right alongside the Beach. Lucy is a Love story of 2 people that lived and raised Lucy. I truly enjoyed this attraction

Lucy has the drawing power of being not only a great piece of local history, she’s also a unique attraction that is just plain fun to see and visit. Kids especially will love her! Tours are given every 30 minutes on the hour and half-hour....More
