Love this place. Magical forest is regrowing because they had to cut the old one down due to blight.

She doesn't talk or open her eyes any more. Our 7 year olds were unimpressed (though we didn't let them go inside to the candy emporium).

Mister Ed's Elephant Museum

Mister Ed's Elephant Museum is worth a brief stop. Kids will love the extensive old time candy display. There are many kitschy outdoor yard art photo ops.
