Are you planning a visit to the Red River Valley fair in Fargo, North Dakota? Then you should be aware of the very steep prices you are going to pay. There is a lot to do at the fair, as long as you have the money to spend.
Raleigh is a hikers dream come true. The city continues to extend it’s Greenway system. They have built tunnels under roads and recently completed a bridge over the Beltline 440. They have trails around lakes throughout the city. In addition the state of North Carolina has an 11 thousand acre park, Umstead inside the city with more trails.
The little ones will love the animated remote control (check the website for dates and times) and the actual mummy on display at the museum. A tour of the house will give visitors an idea of what it was like to live as a Vanderbilt (my guess is it wasn’t bad!) Than there’s the planetarium, which gives visitors a chance to check out the heavens.
There are quite a few rides to choose from; I forget the names of most of the rides now. Of course, there are children’s rides like the carousel and a Ferris wheel – but my favorite is the tilt-a-whirl. Most of the rides at the Red River Valley Fair cost five coupons (which are a dollar a piece), while a few are only four. So for two people to go on one ride, you will probably end up paying $10. If it hadn’t been for the $7 entry fee, I would have probably gone on one or two more rides.
But that unfortunate experience at the Planetarium has not spoiled me from enjoying all that the Science Center has to offer. And there’s so much to choose from. There’s the Omnimax Theater, complete with a wraparound screen and something like 50 loudspeakers, it really puts you right in the middle of the action. So much so that some people get dizzy and have to put their heads down between their legs.
Zoo volunteers traveled the city depositing small dinosaur toys around the city on sidewalks. Representatives say to take them home but to please take a picture of it and post it on the zoo’s Facebook wall.
Sydney competes with Gold Coast when it comes to gorgeous beaches. Two of the most popular are Bondi and Manly, and they are open to the public. Children can spend a lot of time snorkeling, building sandcastles, or meeting new friends. They can also sign up for the livesavers’ surfing club within the area. Parents, on the other hand, can drop by market stalls set up at certain days of the week. Families who are less adventurous can enjoy the waters of rock pools.
