The Underrated North Carolina Attraction That Will Add Adventure To Your Summer
When fun meets adventure and education, you’ve found the perfect destination to take the kids for a day trip when the boredom of summer hits full force. One perfect place that masters that delicate balance is the Greensboro Science Center. Part aquarium, museum, zoo, and treetop adventure…this destination might sometimes fly under the radar for non-Triad residents, but is a must-visit!
From interactive, mesmerizing exhibits for children to a gorgeous aquarium where you can see sharks darting by and a stingray or two...this Science Center is so much more than just 'science.' It's an educational adventure allowing small children (and adults) to see things they might never have the chance to.
While the resident tiger is a must-see, the Science Center is full of exotic and cute animals to check out. There are lemurs, monkeys, snakes, otters, penguins, snapping turtles, exotic frogs, alpacas, a wolf and even a wallaby.
Various 'learning experiences' allow visitors an up close, more in-depth experience. If you have a young scientist or animal lover in the family, summer camps and spring classes are a great option. There's even a brick engineering and robotics course. When it comes to visiting, obviously there's the main attractions, but the Science Center also offers a variety of other activities like adventure theatre shows, OmniSphere Shows and penguin feeding.
One attraction perfect for summer is the 'SkyWild' treetop adventure theme park. SkyWild was designed to allow those to experience a variety of animal behaviors while getting a fun workout.
The performed actions encourage those to mimic animal behaviors, like waddling, leaping, and crawling.
While you might be imitating an animal, it's the fun that counts while here.
