: A Castle near Orlando? Yes!When
: Saturday, December 11,[masked]:00 AMWhere
: Solomon's Castle
4533 Solomon Road
Ona, FL 33865
Howard Solomon, a sculptor, built a castle west of Orlando with his own hands! Sure to be bizarre and more than a little nerdy! You can tour the castle and artist's workshop, they have a restaurant on site called Boat in the Moat, and there is a nature walk.
Also, if we get 20 people interested they have a group rate. Otherwise Admission is $10
They are closed for the summer, but will reopen in October.http://www.solomonscastle.org/
Here are some Google search results for pictures of the castle:http://www.google.com/images?hl=en&source=imghp&biw=1456&bih=786&q=solomon%27s+castle&gbv=2&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=
Lets plan for those interested to meet up somewhere and try to carpool down to this place together. It opens at 11 AM. We should meet up for carpool at 9ish I guess. You WILL need a GPS to find this place using coordinates. Otherwise a cell phone will help you once you get to the road in question so you can use those rusty phone skills to call and beg for help homing in on the entrance.
If you can put co-ordinates in your GPS, ours are:
N 27 22' 26.5"
if you use the address 4585 Solomon Road
that will at least put you on Solomon Road
