Wish we could give it more than five stars. Stellar hiking. Very well-maintained facilities and campgrounds. Touristy, but not overly so - the surrounding areas still have their integrity. We hiked the Hidden Canyon trail and highly recommend it! You'll use chains to traverse some drop-offs, but the sights are absolutely breathtaking. We liked it more than Grand Canyon and Arches combined!
I've only been to D.C. once, but it was fun. Got the chance to see inside the White House. Funny story... Was in some random room, and a kid got sick and threw up all over the place... People stopped to look, and I commented, "He must be a republican." This was during Obama's presidency. I'm a funny guy, what can I say! Good stuff, though. Come here and see it... Worth the trip.
Interesting piece of Atlantic City history. Climb up into Lucy through her back left leg, them go to the observation area. Be ware if you have a fear of heights that the floor of the observation area is glass, a skylight into the body of the elephant.
This was a great place to kill a few hours. Paying for the tour was worth the money, even for our non-baseball fan party members. Watching how they make the bats and the tremendous variety that they come in was astounding. Would you believe cutting a bat takes only about 30 seconds with modern equipment? I could have spent several hours just in the museum with the memorabilia and interactive exhibits. I'd love to go back here again.
Beautiful part of Texas. Lovely river and swimming area. The trails are fairly easy for everyone. The dinosaur prints are not too impressive but we loved the life size models near the entrance. Great facilities for groups and small picnics. Playground and camping area too.
So much to do! I recommend getting the fast pass. Everything was controlled by your wrist band, dining plan, hotel room, park entry...Etc everything. It's water proof so you don't have to take it off to swim. The rides were fun for almost all ages. Even when we had a ride our littlest kids could not go on there was something close by for me to entertain them with like other kid rides or shows. There were characters everywhere and they stayed in character.
So, my family and I frequent the Orlando area a lot, and have never heard of/been to Gatorland until this year. We went this morning (12/28/2016) not expecting too much, but wow did we have a blast! It was so cool to see all the gators swimming around. They all looked happy, well fed, and well taken care of. The staff was so cheerful and friendly and the prices were insanely lower than Disney or other attractions. You could easily get a day of entertainment out of this place. Feeding gators and the shows were my favorite. We will be visiting again next time we are in the area!
I loved this museum! It was a donation based fee for entry which was wonderful because we could only visit for a short time so it made the trip very worth it. There was just about every different kind of art you can imagine from all different parts of the world, from many different time periods. It was absolutely beautiful and I would highly recommend to anyone that even has some interest in art. The Egyptian exhibit was definitely my favorite.
I LOVE this place!! Well worth the price if you take your time exploring and like either Ernest Hemingway, Southern architecture and/or cats! I visited the museum to play with the cats and my expectations were exceeded! There are so many gentle, healthy and friendly cats on the premises. There are plenty of outdoor spaces to sit and relax while enjoying the landscaping and playful cats. Cats that want to be pet sit near walking paths and benches. You will also be pleased to discover many cats relaxing behind the bushes, in cat houses and even in the trees! They also have a vet on staff and I could tell they were all well loved and cared for. Great experience!!
So gorgeous. Best view of LA. Also so many buildings full of art to explore. Great for kids and art lovers. Plan on spending a full day here if you want to see it all. We got here about an hour and a half before closing and it wasn't enough time to scratch the surface. The gardens are also beautiful. I believe it was free other than parking. Great sunday afternoon activity
A beautiful park! I love the wide open design, allowing you to see the field from almost everywhere. Great selection of food. Love Monument Park and the museum. Although it doesn't have the historic feel of the old park, it's still a great place to go with my family.
My sister 58 from Maryland and myself 54 from Wisconsin visited this Aquarium in December of 2016. We took a day and spent about 4 hours going to the aquarium. It's mostly aimed towards Children and Families like that, but my sister and I had a great awesome time there. I was very surprised with all the different animals and certain ones that are just in the Florida area. Plus everyone there was well-informed and helpful with any questions you had. It was a wonderful experience.
World class. Could be called "museum of natural history, sociology, geology, culture and genetics." And then some. The lifetime work of Margaret Meade is a highlight, with its extensive focus on the South Pacific and on methods of sociology field work in general. I spent a full day and never even got to the plantatarium. The newer exhibits, such as the ones on DNA and Neanderthals vs. humanoids, are more interactive and more appealing to younger audience, but the old style dioramas and the Dino exhibits are timeless and priceless. It's exciting to see they are doing programs like "spend the night at the museum" to engage a new generation of scientists and explorers. Admission is by "suggested amount" so don't allow cost to be a barrier. Coat check signs say there's a $3 charge, but they were not taking money when I visited. The danger with visiting such a rich collection is overload. If time in NYC and getting to and from the museum is not an issue, three 2-hour visits would be far preferable to one six hour visit, especially for children. There's just so much to take in. Lucky the NY child who gets to visit repeatedly!
They have a museum and a big store with baskets and also handmade crafts to help the local community. They also offer store tours and great discounts. The iconic basket building from Newark was replaced for one a little bit shorter but its still nice to go there as a touristic attraction.
I feel like this is the place that divorced parents takes their kids when it's their turn to have them for the weekend. Also, when you want to take your kids out to a theme park but don't want to pay Disney prices. You do get unlimited go karts though, plus they sell beer. Basically it's the best place to legally drive drunk and take your kids who you only get to see for the weekend because you don't have anything to talk about because you only see them every other weekend and you have to buy their love instead of earning it with affection. Oh jesus, this got dark fast.
The bathroom facilities meet minimal standards, there are much worse along 95 for sure. The staff was very friendly, it was a bit hard to hear the cashier at the resturant with how busy they were, poor girl had to keep repeating herself. The dining area was clean and from what we could see so was the kitchen. They have the best tacos!!! Everything was fresh, the lettuce and tomatoes! It was well stuffed too! Fries and hot dogs were also tasty. The staff at the store (the camp supply one) were friendly as well. Prices are reasonable... All in all I would recommend.
Definitely a bucket list item. We went at night and, while it was cold (February), the weight of history just standing there was absolutely staggering. The building is simply massive and the view across the reflecting pool is gorgeous. There is a marker where Martin Luther King gave his famous speech and standing there gives you goosebumps. To avoid crowds, though, I really would urge going at night.
01/29/17: 5.0 out of 5 - 01/29/17: Coming from Portland, Oregon with close friends. Six of us total to be exact with only myself being a Marine Corps Veteran. The place is large and so much to be seen from World War II with so much information. One must imagine how much was happening during this Era. Absolutely amazing! It left a profound impression on me, my wife, and our friends. The staff and volunteers that helped us were very nice and helpful. Definitely an experience that may take a full day or two. However, try it once and decide for yourself. I highly recommend visiting this museum!
A dream come true for me to be able to watch here in the most famous arena in the whole world! I got a cheapest seat located at the top one more step close to the roof top. And guys you'll not believe me, I really had a good view for that position. Indeed it was really true what they say that the arena was built for good seating view. And I found fun watching while eating my chicken tenders and criss cross cut fries for only $11.
Quaint roadside attraction, lovely spot for pictures or a picnic. A nice landmark to recall the history of Route 66. I loved the story of the whale being originally a surprise wedding anniversary gift. The couple must have known each other so well to exchange such large and eccentric presents!
Science is real folks. Free admission. Customary security checkpoint right by the doors, so be prepared to have your items scanned through. Gift shop is huge, not cheap, but you can and should find something to mark the occasion of visiting. Some amazing exhibits and some are quite big! This is where you bring your kids interested in anything mechanical. They will love seeing the amazing array of aerospace displays. I spent the time walking around by myself and had an amazing time just marveling at human ingenuity. Weekdays aren't too crowded, just FYI.
Fantastic park! Can accommodate people of all ages and abilities. Rangers are very helpful. Was able to learn a lot about the geological history of the area. The trails are a lot of fun to explore! Would like to see a few more trails established if possible.
I was visiting from Maryland and thought I would check this out. I very much enjoyed the tour, the iPad was very interactive. It allowed you to explore at your own pace. Graceland has been saved in a time bubble. The staff was very informative and helpful with any questions asked. It is expensive but worth it for the experience. Some areas were closed due to work being done but still plenty to see. The new expansion coming in March 2017 will add to this venue. Good job.
Just like all the other Cedar Fair owned and operated parks, this one is fantastic. It has just the right combination of fair prices, decent food, lines that aren't too long, thrill rides, chill rides and beautiful landscaping and planting. That really can't be understated. You may not pay attention to it at an amusement park but trust me, once you visit some that don't landscape, they look so run down and dirty, unkempt if you will. This one is beautiful. All these rides are set in a lush green setting. It has some great coasters. I really enjoyed this park and would highly recommend it.
A Winter Wonderland... So so stunning! We absolutely loved our visit to the park. The snow added so much charm to the hoodoos. Please stop by the visitors center and watch the short documentary about Bryce canyons. It's very informative and you'd appreciate the park more if you know the history.
Undoubtedly one of the best art museums in the United States. I have a particular soft spot for impressionism, and their Money collection is breathtaking. Even if you don't view yourself as an "art person," The Art Institute is worth the visit. It is the quietest, most peaceful place in the city, and there is so much more here than paintings on canvas. They supply a fascinating window into history. Make sure to ask what kind of promotional rates they have too; I asked if that had a student discount (which they do- 50% off), and they asked if we are Illinois residents, because if so, it would be free admission that day!
A memorable experience and fun for kids. I just found a photo of me and my 3 brothers on the dinosaurs in 1954. I remember it still and the experience made me love dinosaurs. I combined those photos with recent ones of me at Dinosaur National Monument in Utah into a book I am making for my granddaughter who also loves dinosaurs. It may be corny and not scientifically valid, but take the kids there. They will have fun and keep the memories like I did.
Even if I had not seen "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" about fifty times I still would have came here. Early September is a wonderful time as it was comfortable, great for that walk around the tower without getting overheated. The path is in good condition and easy on the feet and legs, and offers different viewpoints of the tower. If you are a prairie dog fan this is another good location to watch. Wonderful to experience up close and further away.
Love the character of this piece of art, as well as all the little details that surrounds it, inside the house you can see the real deal! All the history behind its construction, a pretty funny video from owners, tools used and few art pieces. Definitely worth the 5 bucks I paid to see... if you prefer you can ask for a guided tour for extra 5. And souvenirs are good as gifts. For those without a ride like I was, just take canal memorial metro bus (N°20) either way from downtown or from Galleria area.
The Christmas show was quite entertaining, and the venue was very nice. Be sure to check out the amazing chandelier in the main lobby. Ushers were helpful and polite. Restroom was very clean, and lines moved quickly. Sound is a bit loud; we wish we'd brought ear plugs. Line to enter was a bit chaotic, but moved along pretty well. On the way in, be ready to empty your pockets and have a wand detector passed over you!
I have no idea how the wait time here is never over 15 minutes!!!! This ride is awesome! They definitely built this attraction with a long wait line, meaning ... you have to walk a long way to get to the ride, however, that just makes it so that you don't have to stand forever. By the time to get to the ride, it's time to ride!!! Extremely fast, similar speeds to the hulk, but crazy fun!!!
Awesome day at Hershey park. If you want to go to the chocolate factory ride/tour, I suggest you leave it for the end of your day for one reason: that factory ride closes 1 hour after the park. You should enjoy the rides at the park from open to close. This way you take maximum advantage of the whole park. Also, buy the refill souvenir cup. It's well worth it by the end of the day.
Loved it! Free over the winter months, gorgeous. Water is freezing, and they don't have a little shop to buy towels or flip flops at so make sure you come prepared. They have a lot of little trails around the water hole itself and on a sunny day it's a perfect outing.
Have been several times over the past few years and have seen it evolve from a Christian Tourist attraction to a place of awesome ministry. The Multi media passion play was the best I have ever seen. I would highly recommend it to any Bible believing Christian. You will not be disappointed.
One of the best museums in the world; and we've been to many, in the U.S. and in Europe. They have large hanging sculptures by Calder; and amazing art throughout. The architecture inside is beautiful. When we were there, they had regular cinema-speaking engagements, as well as live piano, playing to silent films - how amazing is that! Definitely worth a visit; and check out their website for the various programs available so you get the most out of the time you are there.
If you plan a family trip to Tennessee you may want to make a stop here. The Lost Sea Adventure is fun, entertaining, family friendly, and unlike any place else. When you first walk in you'll see a big yellow tunnel (ask why it's yellow) leading down into the cold dark earth. It's a little intimidating but nothing to be afraid of. While on the tour you'll learn about the Lost Sea, the previous inhabitants of the Lost Sea and even go for a little excursion at the end. It is around 60 degrees during the tour so it's recommended to wear long pants and maybe a jacket. After the tour check out the gift shop for fun gifts and souvenirs.
We rode the Orlando eye at the night and saw breath taking views. Orlando at night is absolutely beautiful, especially since it's on I-drive; I-drive is the street that never sleeps in Orlando. There was a small wait that stems from a short 3d video about Orlando. Afterwards it was a straight shot to the -very spacious- pod to be lifted. We boarded 3 people in pod (could fit much more) but every group had their own pod (only a handful of people were in line). The pod had music and the light were dimmed to add an even more memorable night scene. The only downside is that it took just a tad bit long for the eye to complete one revolution. Side note it is best to ride the eye twice, once during the day and once at night.
The parks in the Southwest are truly amazing. This is one of my favorites. We started at the end of the park in Devil's Garden and hiked out to the double Arch and the Navajo Arch. Getting up to these two arches required some climbing but that's part of the fun. Devils Garden is the last hiking spot in the park and takes about 45 minutes to drive to. According to one of the rangers, this is the longest hike in the park. Most of the other trails get you to an arch must faster. After Devils Garden, we worked our way back to the front of the park stopping to do some short hikes. Several arches could be reached with a short 5 minute hike. The petrified sand dunes were neat, too. The facilities were in good condition. The bathrooms were clean and some trails had water fountains at the start so you could refill your water bottle. There seemed to be plenty of parking, but we were here in early April. Currently the park closes at 7pm during the week due to night time construction. There are signs saying you need to start driving out of the park at 6 to make it out by 7.
Awesome place to experience the beauty of nature and wild nature with magical gravity spot which is very place on earth. I enjoyed with friends and family the visit. Please take care of the route map/gps as the route is narrow into the woods and week cellphone signals. Be hydrated as the spot might cause drowning due to the gravity changes.
Perfect place for kids of all ages. Family venue. Great slides caves to explores. Hands on environment for children. Giant ball pit for adults and kids. Parents can feel safe with kids wandering around. The wrist band has your cellphone number on it so if your little one gets lost, they can find you. You will go back again and again.
We visited Jan 7-8. Winter trips require a tour guide, as no private cars are allowed. Our guides were knowledgeable and the park is strikingly beautiful in the winter. We went to the canyons day 1, and Old Faithful & Fountain Paint Pots day 2. We met several rangers at the stations and they were friendly and helpful.
Great Museum. If you ever go there, you should watch the documentary "Voices of Midway." It was really good. If you're a military veteran who is reading this... Thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your service. Long live the Republic and God Bless America!
A Very Furry Christmas - 5 star Food inside the park - 1 star or lower So why still 5 stars overall? We went to the Very Furry Christmas back in 2013 and went again this year. We held season tickets to the park too. The park is beautifully decorated for the holidays. The shows are great for the kids. This is a great place to bring toddlers since most of them go through the Elmo phase. It is not so big and overwhelming like Disney World, and it costs a lot less. The kids are happy! We first went when granddaughter was two years old. Now grandson is into Elmo and friends. So there are many sweet memories of the kids growing up with Sesame Place. Yes, I wish the food is better. But you can eat before going in or bring in some food. It is good value for family fun.
A great place to go with the family. It is a beautifully constructed (and upkept) grotto covered in gems and stones from around the world. The grotto's images portray the story of the life of Christ. It is by donation, so no payment required, and there is a gift shop and museum as well.
Beautiful place with views of Los Angeles. The best place to come to get a panorama (this or the Getty). Parking can be a pain. Dedicate a full day to getting there. Parking is at the base of the hill, and a bus is required to go up. Last time we were there, it was $2 per person - cash required. The observatory itself (inside) is all right. It's really the view that you're going for.
I love this place. As a Dallas local, I've been coming here since I was a little kid and it still doesn't get old. It takes hours to see everything and every habitat and animal is very well cared for. Its definitely pricey once you get to the souvenirs but the tour is worth the price. Family friendly and a lot of fun. Still one of my favorite places as an adult.
