Area Attractions

In the heart of Central Florida, yet a world apart

Turn off of Veterans Memorial Parkway and enter a verdant landscape that evokes feelings of peace and serenity. Live oaks draped in Spanish moss dot a 200-acre campus that serves as a sanctuary for sandhill cranes and wild turkeys.
