Monday is one of our favorite days here at the American Treasure Tour because we get to celebrate other unique museums around the country. There are so many rich and wonderful places out there that, once you've visited the American Treasure Tour thirty or forty times, you're going to need to see someplace else - especially once the weather gets warmer! So, as most of the nation is dealing with snowfall and erratic temperatures, today we journey to a place that is almost always hot: southern Florida. We're talking south of Miami southern, but not quite Key West southern. A town called Homestead.
The destination is one of the more impressive sites in the country created by one man. Now, considering that the collection here at the American Treasure Tour is one man's, that says something about the place. It's called the Coral Castle. And it's well named, because it's a castle made entirely out of coral - about 1,100 tons of the stuff - and one man created the whole thing entirely by himself. It's something of a mechanical marvel, too. There's a 9-ton gate that is so well balanced that it swivels with gentle force of one person. So, definitely check out this place the next time you happen to be on your way to the southernmost point in these United States. Or just go through their website, right here: http://coralcastle.com
