At LEGOLAND in Florida - and presumably the California location, too - there is a "miniland" of American urban skylines recreated diminutively with LEGO bricks. It's one of the highlights of the huge parks. But, if you can't get there to see it, don't worry. The LEGOLAND Discovery Center in suburban Chicago is itself a mini version of the outdoor LEGOLAND, though entirely inside. And, best of all, even the Discovery Center has a miniland.
Folks assured me that all it would take is one visit to the Orlando-area theme park and I'd be hooked. And it was true. But, with all due respect to Mickey Mouse, I'm talking about LEGOLAND, in Winter Haven, Fla., rather than Disney.
