For 28 years from 1923 to 1951, a man named Ed Leedskalnin secretly carved rock at night. He ended up with 1,100 tons of coral in unusual shapes and today his creation is called Coral Castle, now a Miami attraction.
With a deal from Groupon, two adults can visit for $17 and four can visit for $33. That’s almost 50% off.
Features of the Coral Castle Museum and sculpture garden include a 5,000-pound heart-shaped table that’s listed in the Guinness Book of World Records; a nine-ton gate, a Polaris telescope, and functioning rocking chairs, all made entirely of coral rock. There are also guided tours and an onsite cafe.
Coral Castle Museum is located at 28655 South Dixie Highway in Miami, near Homestead (Exit #5 off the Florida Turnpike and then go West one mile). For more information, call: 305-248-6345.
