    Default a whale of a place

    I would like to know your opinion about this sentence that comes in an advertisement:
    " A whale of a place to go"

    It is about a candy store where there is a lot of selection of candies. the truth is that it is being hard to translate that sentence.
    I think it could mean something like "Un lugar genial para visitar"

    Me gustaría saber sus opiniones y sugerencias. Muchísimas gracias.

    Quizá "Un lugar sensacional para visitar"
    Los dulces provocan agradables sensaciones, sobre todo si se es goloso.

    Hay otras frases similiares en inglés, por ejemplo....

    It was a whale of a show.

    Significa algo grande, especial o espectacular!
