Went to the zoo for the first time yesterday and was extremely impressed with the variety of animals. I was admittedly skeptical at first after going to numerous other large zoos like Washington and Atlanta, but after the trip with our 2 year old it was fantastic. We spent about 2 hours and was able to see everything there. We didn't do the train or sky ride, but it was a nice visit, plus it wasn't very crowded being February.

This museum is wonderful! Not only does it offer great art galleries, but there are also a plethora of engaging classes and events to choose from. The MMFA even hosts a festival in the spring! I grew up taking art classes here and it was such a wonderful environment. As I got older, I have been able to volunteer with young girls who attended Camp Sunshine and assist with their art projects. The location is also beautiful.

Full of rich history and artifacts from the short legendary life of Hank Williams Sr. My only regret is that I didn't plan enough time to really study everything that was there. I am a country musician and loved getting to see the his and his band mates instruments in person, plus many of his stage outfits made by Nudie Rodeo Tailors including the one he died in. The staff was very friendly and was happy to discuss all my Hank questions. I will definitely be stopping in on my next trip.
