I take my family here from time to time to see Mr. Cayce's foundation. This place is very unique and you must spend several hours there. You need to have an open mind and be ready for the spiritual and no spiritual world that exists.

Nice book/healing store and a great library. Lectures available. You can read the excerpts of E Cayce's readings on the second floor. If you are into this stuff, you can easily spend a lot of time here.

We enjoyed reading about Edgar Cayce and walking the grounds. It's small enough to see everything in one afternoon. If you enjoy meditation, they have a nice meditation room overlooking the beach, as well as a walkable labyrinth. They also offer daily lectures that can...More

Most hotels nearby are pricey unless you can get a special deal, although I think rates are generally cheaper in winter months. I live in the area so I don't usually stay in a hotel! If you are (or become) an ARE member... More
