What Are the Best Aquariums in the Country?

When it comes to our gift list this Christmas, we always try to do one “experience” gift for the whole family! So far we’ve done season passes to the zoo, to Busch Gardens and to our local aquarium. And for some reason, the girls REALLY took to the aquarium. Our passes have been expired for a few months now, and they ask almost weekly to go back!

For many people, particularly families traveling, aquariums can, in and of themselves be a reason to visit a particular location. And aquariums are great for parents and children alike. When you take your children to an aquarium, it allows them to see first-hand different animals and habitats. It expands their minds beyond what they see in their everyday world. 

Aquariums can also be a good place to learn about protecting the environment and the effects our behaviors have on the world around us, plus many aquariums provide opportunities for interactive and hands-on learning.

An RV wash is essential if you want to keep the motor home in pristine condition.

That includes knowing the right cleaning products to use.

Cleaning Tools

Using the correct cleaning supplies will ensure you don’t damage the exterior of your RV. Generally, use nonabrasive cleaning tools. An effective way to clean your RV and not leave any damage behind is to use the hose.

So he told me to pick a place. PICK A PLACE. I mean, how on earth can I do that?! So many places! So little time! I was trying to think of a place where people go spontaneously, so of course, Vegas came to mind. But, although my in-laws love the casinos and actually do pretty well at any casino they visit, the hubby and I don’t care much for them. So really – why ELSE would you even GO to Vegas?

For many people the idea of Las Vegas is synonymous with gambling. And it it no surprise, considering the fact that in 2017 alone, Las Vegas Strip casinos generated $6.47 billion in gaming revenue, with the most prominent casinos reporting as much as a  3.9 percent increase in total revenue including rooms, food, beverage and gaming over 2016.
