Hello all,

Florida has an abundance of things to do and see. Though the theme parks are the the most popular of things, they are also the most expensive! I've compiled a list of some of the lesser known places, that are just as fun and much easier on the pocketbook.

1. MOSI- (Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa)- this place is awesome. My family has been several times, and it has never disappointed us. Adults are just $26.95, children $20.95.

2. Gatorland-(in Orlando) Everything you want to see about alligators! Plus they have an aviary, petting zoo, animal shows and a zipline. Adults $23.99, children $15.99.

3. Lowery Park Zoo-(in Tampa)  This is a very nice zoo. My family has been here many, many times. They also have a train ride, and awesome shows. Adults- $29.99, children $22.95.

4. Wonderworks-(in Orlando) This is a really fun hands on experience the whole family can enjoy! There is so much to do and see, you can get lost here all day. They even have a magic dinner show here for a seperate fee.  Adults-$26.99, children $20.99.

5. Ripleys-(in Orlando) There are many oddities to see here. It also has hands on activities. Adults-$19.99, children $12.99.

6. WeekieWachi-(Springhill) This is one of the oldest attractions in Florida. One one side is Buccaneer Bay which boasts 2 water slides, a tiki bar, lazy river tubing,  and swimming in their springs. But be warned the water is COLD!! Stays a steady 72*. The other side you;ll see an underwater mermaid show, an animal show, and a boat ride. Adults- $13.00, children $8.00.

7. Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks-(Tarpon springs) There is a lot to see and do in Tarpon springs. They have many one of a kind shops to browse, and delicious local Greek bakeries and restaurants.  They also have a local aquarium where the kids can pet and feed baby stingrays. Adults-$7.75, children $5.75.

Whichever you choose I'm sure you'll have a great fun filled time!!
