Dr. Seuss and Cat in the Hat

Dr. Seuss and the Cat in the Hat are on the west side of the Geisel Library. From there you can head east to see three more attractions: walk along the Giant Snake Mosaic Walkway, past the House Teetering on the Edge of a Roof, to the Teddy Bear Made of Boulders, which is on the left.

A one-of-a-kind stroll past some eye-poppin' sights, for sure.
