It is also convenient to all the action. It is a 2 minute drive to Barefoot Landing and the Alabama theater, yet it is off the beaten path and away from the traffic. The views from the unit are spectacular whether you are on the 6th floor or the 2nd. The perspective is different but the view is great.

This was such a big surprise. I had been to other Ripley's attractions but this is very different and the best I have ever seen. What a wonderful place.
