The Fantastic Umbrella Factory is not really an umbrella factory at all. It’s an offbeat assemblage of stores that sell everything from blown glass to natural foods to Halloween costumes. There are umbrellas for sale, too, but they’re not the main focus here.
What is the main attraction at this place, founded in 1968, is a farmstead that dates from at least the 19th century. Out in back a menagerie includes guinea hens, sheep, emus, and chickens. There’s a main store and international bazaar, with trinkets galore.
The Umbrella Factory Gardens are known for their moss baskets. While they custom-plant your basket, you can drink a smoothie, check out the art gallery, or find some antiques or incense at one of the many stores there.
Some people like to travel by train because it combines the slowness of a car with the cramped public exposure of an airplane.
