Have Fun Learning New Things Over Summer Vacation

One of the many things I love about visiting the Sunset Beach area is that there are two wonderful institutions just a few minutes' drive from our condo - The Museum of Coastal Carolina, and the Ingram Planetarium. Throughout the Summer, each offers a full calendar of hands-on Family activities, which can be an excellent opportunity to have some fun learning new things with the kids. And Summer 2010 is looking good!

In addition to a fantastic range of great shows in their state-of-the-art theatre, you can take advantages of a number of free events held regularly throughout the week at the Planetarium: On Tuesdays, try your hand at tools used for Celestial Navigation; on Wednesdays, come learn about Meet with members of Turtle Watch to learn about the Loggerhead Sea Turtle, and make Thursday your "Sun Fun Day" as you take a peek through a solar telescope.

Museum of Coastal Carolina - Summer 2010

The Museum of Coastal Carolina offers a full week of special programs for the whole family, where you can learn a little extra about fish, or snakes, or prehistoric sharks, beach safety - or perhaps you'd like to learn about local ghost stories or brush up on your knot-tying skills.
