City Pass Seattle Offers Great Price For Popular Attractions

Who says only adults get all the fun in Sydney? This vibrant chic city in New South Wales has a lot of activities and attractions to offer to kiddos. In fact, some of them do not have a price tag at all, something very welcoming to budget-conscious parents.

There is almost always public transportation to a museum. We took are kids to Philadelphia by train, not because it was simpler than driving the car but because it was something new and exciting to kids who have never hopped on a train or bus. And when you get to the museum, you don’t have to worry about where to park the car.

Regardless of whether you are a Yankee fan–or whether you are a baseball fan, for that matter–you have to visit the New Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. Granted, tickets are a bit on the expensive side, but the stadium is so gorgeous, that it’s worth it. Make sure to get there well before game-time so you can have the chance to see the Yankees museum, which has memorabilia from throughout the Yankees illustrious history. I also recommend eating at NYY Steak after animatronic dinosaur suppliers the game.

Plan to catch a Broadway show while you are there. Visit the half price ticket booth in Times Square to see what deals they have for that nights performance. Sometimes you can really get lucky and get seats to the hottest shows on Broadway.

Another fun summer event to enjoy at the Living History Farms – baseball! This isn’t the Iowa Cubs, though. It’s the Walnut Hills Bluestockings, and they play 1870’s rules baseball. Great uniforms, fun old baseball vocabulary and a chance for the kids to “bat around” after the game make it an old-fashioned connection to the modern world.

Edwards Mill Dam off Edwards Mill Road. Nice picture opportunity by an old mill dam. The mill is long gone. In season the houses opposite the dam have some of the most beautiful flowers on display in the city.

Perhaps the most unusual dinosaur is the “Brontosaurus” (we call them Apatosauruses now), which features a set of stairs that you can use to climb inside the creature. The interior of the dinosaur is red and white (naturally) and houses a painting of Jesus housed in a heart-shaped frame and labeled “The Greatest Heart.” The Prehistoric Zoo is open 7 days a week through Labor Day from 9 am to 6 pm. There are more limited hours during September, and it is closed from October through April. It’s a good idea to call ahead to verify the hours at 989-471-5477. The charge is $5 for adults, $4 for children aged 7 to 11, and $3 for children 6 and under.
