Lots of fun for the family. Great for a rainy day, but very busy. Kids will absolutely love the magic house.

There are a lot of choices and many within walking distance. Hope this helps. Tried to send you the link but can’t list HTML here. If you google “restaurants near the Magic House” Trip advisor has a list.
