The Polasek Museum

offers over 200 works by Czech-born

American sculpturer, Albin Polasek. The museum is the

previous retirement home of the artist, and is listed on the

“National Register of Historic Places.” It is one of only 30

members of the “National Trust’s Historic Artists’ Homes

and Studios.” In addition to the home, the museum

features a chapel and a captivating garden which includes

over 50 outdoor sculptures and dates back to 1949.

While you’re there, stay at The Alfond Inn (the Rollins

College boutique hotel), or the Park Plaza Hotel. Before

leaving the area, you can relax and take in a film at the

Enzian outdoor theater, just a few minutes from Park

Avenue. The venue is amidst 400-year-old oak trees,

and offers audience members lounge chairs, as well

as the option to dine on first-rate food, craft beers,

wine, and cocktails.
