Visitor Tips and News About Airstream Ranch
One of my favorite sights on the way to Orlando. My husband was driving so I managed to take photos from the passenger seat as we passed by.[Shellynet, 07/01/2016]
Can't stop or get photo from front, which is the better view, but only as a drive by. But by following the directions, you can see across a field to back view.[Carol, 05/04/2016]
Cool, but your best pic shots will not be on the back roads described, but will be if you pull over (safely) off the interstate. It does come up on you quick on the interstate so be wary.[J Bryson, 02/01/2016]
Hard to photograph. Perhaps not so bad on a light traffic day, but the interstate shoulder isn't very wide, and seemed risky for a stop. We instead looped back to the previous exit for a drive-by, with the photographer in the passenger's seat. Even then, slow lane antics won't be appreciated by drivers speeding towards Orlando.
