We love to visit A.R.E when we go to VA Beach. We find comfort in just being on the property. It's a metaphysical feast for all senses.

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.
