Rainy day fun

Tips for Families

Bring a stroller and snacks. It's a lot of fun and there is a great place for kids, but some of the areas are geared more for those who can read and have an interest for sea life. Also, there isn't any "close" parking, so a stroller is a must for those with really little kids.

Try to avoid peak times, like the day after Christmas. It was VERY crowded.
