“Overrated”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

It was just a visitors center. Nothing special. The ladies at the counter were nice, but their lunch suggestion was not that great. Stop in if you want all the tourist brochures.

We stopped here on the way to our condo. The lady behind the desk was very friendly and gave us some tips for restaurnats, etc... many ads for local businesses and coupons!

“Great coupons!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

Go just to get the coupons. We saved a ton of money by spending 20 minutes there. Got coupons for the chocolate store, go carts, bumper boats, min golf.
