Though this historic site was the winter retreat of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, it's clear that neither man was exactly lazing around and soaking in the sun while staying here. The buildings and grounds are filled with the evidence and ephemera of their busy minds and hands.

There's enough to keep visitors busy for a full day, what with 20+ acres of carefully tended gardens, Edison's Botanical Laboratory, the men's historic homes, and a 15,000 square foot museum where you can see old cars and hundreds of photographs and objects documenting the lives and work of these two extraordinary men.
