One of the biggest attractions at Legoland is their “Miniland” exhibit; it’s a huge outdoor area with some of the most amazing Lego creations you’ve ever seen.
Max’s most favorite was, of course, the Star Wars miniland, but everything is amazing.
There are lots of monuments and landmarks reproduced at a small scale. The pieces are a great size that allows lots of great detail. The people in these scenes are about 4″ tall.

San Francisco was my favorite, of course, but they had New York City, complete with the Freedom Tower, the Las Vegas strip, the French Quarter, there’s a BMX course complete with RVs, and a cute Eastern seaboard town.
