This glass and steel behemoth is hard to miss. The glittering structure houses the Crystal Cathedral Ministries, a church which was started in 1955 and first met at the Orange Drive-In Movie Theater. This ministry is especially well known for their "Glory of Easter" and "Glory of Christmas" specials, when they go to the extremes (loads of wild animals, humans suspended from wires, AV spectacularness) to have a real honest-to-goodness religious celebration. During the year free tours are available and the gift shop here is fully stocked. Be sure to check out the drive-in section of the parking lot where you can attend services from the comfort of your automobile.
