  • This tree is amazing! It actually is one Tree but has come up in several different places and it's connected above ground, it is awesome to look at it. You will find it at the end the Front Street across from where the shuttle will drop you off. You're not supposed to climb it but you know there is always someone who thinks it's cute to let their kids climb on it. They actually had musicians in the same area clean and vendor set-up selling little items under the tree
  • It's pretty neat. As you've read, the whole thing is one tree with the vines growing down to become their own tree trunks. I would say go out of your way to see it, but you are here and found parking consider making the stop.
