I've only been inside of St. Joseph Cathedral once (gorgeous!) but growing up, every time I saw it from far distances, I thought it was Disney World.. it's a huge beautiful church! Worth a visit!

We attend the Cathedral several times a year though it is a bit of a drive for us. While the building is incredible, visiting during the Christmas season is an experience. If not attending church I would highly recommend a tour.

The tricky part is figuring out how to access the building! Once inside we found ourselves alone in a most glorious cathedral! Absolutely worth taking 30 minutes to stop and walk around.
