Learn more about Sunrise

In 1960, A developer living in southern Florida named Norman Johnson walked into a Miami car dealership. There he saw an upside down car, which led him to a unique idea for an attraction to his newest development, a small town called Sunrise Golf Course Village. He'd purchased the 2,650 acres near Fort Lauderdale, where he then built an upside down house complete with an upside down car in the driveway. The structure brought national attention to Sunrise, and visitors found themselves purchasing homes and moving to the tiny village.
