Solomon’s Castle

If you find yourself in or near Ona, Florida , an entertaining way to spend a half day is to tour the home and galleries of Howard Solomon.  Ona is approximately one hour  outside of Bradenton, a suburb of Sarasota.  An artist and sculptor who creates his works of art from discarded material, Howard’s galleries display over  300  interesting and sometimes humorous  pieces.  After touring the castle, stay a bit, enjoy lunch at the Boat in the Moat restaurant  and take a  stroll on the grounds.

For directions and hours, here is the link to the  web sight:
