Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) May 23, 2007
AP9 TodaysEscapes reminds us all that next month is National Zoo and Aquarium Month, a celebration that unites humankind with both animal and marine life every June. AP9 Todays Escapes, a travel and entertainment discount membership program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, urges consumers to experience a different kind of entertainment this summer, with one or two-day visits to the nation's aquariums and zoos.
Like singer/songwriter Paul Simon once wrote, "It's all happening at the zoo." Chances are that those lyrics could certainly have included a specific mention of aquariums too -- given that both places always offer something entertaining to do and something new to discover.
AP9 TodaysEscapes offers a quick glimpse of two of the most popular aquariums and zoos in the country:
Georgia Aquarium, Atlanta, GA
This is one of the world's biggest aquariums, featuring more aquatic life than any other in the U.S. Since it opened in November 2005, this aquarium has received guests from all over the country -- no doubt because of the variety of its sea life offerings. With some eight million gallons of water distributed across five different main areas, this aquarium has something for everyone. From Beluga whales to giant Pacific octopi to freshwater fish from the Amazon and Africa, old pros and beginners alike will love watching these sea creatures dive, zig, zag and entertain.
The Georgia Aquarium is open 7 days a week, with summer hours from May 25 to August 11 (Monday - Thursday: 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. Friday - Sunday: 8 a.m. - 7 p.m.)
Smithsonian's National Zoo, Washington D.C.
Washington, D.C.'s National Zoo is a great place to discover and learn about various creatures, from tiny ants to colorful birds to huge elephants and feral African lions. This zoo offers family fun and excitement, as well as stimulating education programs.
Since the Smithsonian National Zoological Park was one of the first ones in the country to support scientific research, anyone visiting the 163-acre urban park can witness how cheetahs are trained, how seals in Antarctica live and learn about dinosaurs and giant pandas…and so much more! Be sure to check out the zoo's website at http://nationalzoo.si.edu/ before planning a visit.
There are many other top zoos and aquariums in the country -- wonderful places to see the respective animal and sea worlds with a fresh set of eyes. For example, plan a trip with your family to the San Diego Zoo to enjoy a three-dimensional journey into the depths of their new tropical forest; or visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey, California, where many hours of fun can be spent watching entertaining animal exhibitions.
While planning visits to aquariums and zoos all over the country, members can use their money-saving benefits for travel arrangements, entertainment, meals, shopping and other benefits, all at the same place: AP9 Todays Escapes.
