Whimzeyland sounds like an urban legend and I guess in some ways it is. Whimzeyland is a 20 year work in progress. It is a local landmark for those who live in the Tampa/St. Petersburg. It is unusual, I always look for unusual things that are outside of the norm when I am traveling. The story had it that they started going to flea markets and visiting other unusual places, they painted the house weird, and then one day came home with a ton of bowling balls and ever since it has been all down hill. I walked through the maze of plexiglass sculptures, paintings, bottle trees, and of course the bowling balls. It was interesting and very entertaining just for touring someones house.
