The botanical gardens are my favorite, but I’ve spent a lot of time at events at the history museum. I haven’t been to the zoo in 20 years, but I’ll go again this year.

    Really Steve? 20 years??? Not even for the Boo lights? You have no idea what you’re missing. Take that new man of yours there and make sure you check out the new seal exhibit! But in full discloser, I have been to the history museum only 2 or 3 times in 10 years and it was usually when relatives were in town. Science Center? too many kids for my tastes.
