Top Five Destinations: New York City

When you visit a children’s museum you often see classes from grade schools, scouting groups, and also special groups catering to the needs of children with handicaps. But you should take your children by yourself. Parents understand their children and they can see things in the museum that their children would have had an interest, but because there is so much to see, they missed them.

Frankies with even more adult acade games. Newer than Jillians it has many additional options for the young at heart. Located where Alexander Dr. and Glenwood Ave meet it is spacious. By being new it has many outside activities to entertain.

This is a must stop on your tour of Seattle. This is an hour long tour of the Seattle bay. It is one of the more elaborate and exciting tours that should be on your itinerary. This cruise is offered by Argosy Cruises and it will point out all of the major features of Seattle Bay and it is great fun. If you want you can upgrade your tickets and still get a great discount on any of the other packages or cruises that Argosy Cruises offers. However it is recommended if you have never been out to sea that you try a shorter trip the animatronic dinosaur suppliers first time out.

The dinosaurs were created between the years of 1934 and 1967 by Paul Domke, a devout Lutheran who created them out of a mixture of concrete, deer hair, and gravel, built over a steel and metal foundation. The largest is about 80 feet long. He based his work on the skeletons he’d seen in the Chicago Field Museum and the Smithsonian. The creatures are spread out over a 40 acre area, which includes some 25 varieties of Michigan trees. (The trees are real.) There are even a few cave men on the premises (I said this wasn’t scientific), engaged in activities like killing mastodons, and fighting off a giant snake.

A newly discovered interest can lead direction to a child’s life. They may become so interested in a subject that they may make it an important part of their life. They may develop a life-long hobby or a vocation. For example, climbing into the giant heart model at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia may turn your son or daughter into a doctor of medicine, even a heart surgeon or cardiologist. The same museum also has an amateur radio station. I found that hobby to be a joy over the years.

Admission is $3.50 in addition to the regular zoo admission and children under three are still free. The exhibit is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through September 6th.
