Favorite Activities from a Local Family

Kirby Science Discovery Center

The Kirby Science Discovery Center at the Washington Pavilion is a fantastic place for kids to get some hands-on learning while having fun. Conduct science experiments, play with the interactive exhibits, and more.

Butterfly House & Aquarium

There is a lot to explore at the Butterfly House & Aquarium, including learning about the various types of butterflies, their life cycle, and plenty of marine life. Touch a stingray or walk through the climate-controlled building where butterflies roam free. You may even be lucky enough to have one land on you!

Falls Park

Falls Park is loved by everyone, no matter their age. See the roaring water from one of the many different vantage points throughout the park, and then view it all from the top of the five-story observation tower. Afterwards, enjoy a scoop or two of ice cream at the on-site Falls Overlook Café.
