“Historical homes nice visit”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

Too bad tripdavisor has an average rating, then very good. I would say this was good-in between average and very good. If you are a history buff and need a break from beaches and theme parks, this is a lovely way to spend the better part of a day. It is free which is very nice! Nice walk (would be hard for handicapped). The homes are from different settlers from Florida, some are reproductions like the schoolhouse. Only a couple of homes were open with a personal tour which were scheduled. Many were not open to walk around in. There really is no place to get a bit to eat but picnic tables so bring your own snacks. You can also walk through the botanical gardens which were disappointing.

“Hertiage Village”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

This is how FL used to look (100 years ago). If you get a good guide, it can be really interesting.

My son and I enjoyed looking through the old homes, take the docent tours where available! Quiet, Relaxing, Fun.

“Super Laid Back Stroll through Old Florida”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

This is a very nice and free place to take your family. They have extensive free parking, and the historical homes and informational notes are very informative and enjoyable. There is an interactive housekeeping space with early 1900 household tools that school age children love to manipulate. This is a very pleasant place to stroll around in the late fall, all winter, and early spring. Florida summers are too muggy and hot for this outdoor experience. There is a gift shop that sells cute knick knacks and refreshments. Take note college spring breakers: "THIS IS NOT FOR YOU!!"
