Edgar Cayce chose this spot for the peace and solitude overlooking the Atlantic and it still has those same qualities. Wonderful spa with massage, nice snack bar, labyrinth with the ocean in the distance. Worth a visit if you like this sort of thing.

If you believe education comes by osmosis, this is the spot for you. It is like a private library-reading room. Pick up the reading on epilepsy. Wacko.

All exhibits are interesting and fun. Casey was a complicated man. Took my guess' from out of town on a rainy day and they found it to be a real neat place.

Edgar Cayce was a special person. He did real things and there are real accounts. The library is best of all.

They offer all kinds of classes, services here - it’s a great place to unwind and learn about the Nostradamus of this generation. Classes are like: massage (various types, they have yoga, meditation, mediums, etc. Plenty of free parking.

Wow! What a pleasant surprise. Wonderful setting and view totally different than the normal venues (albeit nice as well) one is used to patronizing.
