  • Went here and did the Mudflat Mania. This was a nice little hike down to the shoreline. This takes place at low tide so you can learn about the sea life that is located near the shore. Very fun for little children and adults as well. You are able to walk along the shore and look for many different things. The staff is very polite and give you information about the sea life you are going to encounter on this little adventure. Bring a little bucket and little scooper to dig with. Have fun and enjoy the beautiful scenery that you will see.
  • This used to be a great museum, but over the last few years it has become less and less welcoming. A lot of the staff are older, rather cantankerous, and impatient with children. Do not bring your dog here - they HATE dogs. If you have a dog on leash in the parking lot, someone will come over to harass you. I believe there is an ACLU lawsuit currently pending against the museum for discrimination against individuals with service dogs.
