Giddy Up!

They have FREE day on the 2nd Tuesday of the month for everyone. Parking is FREE too. Bank of America has a FREE day on the first weekend of the month too (if you have a card).

I took my 2 year old on a FREE day. I thought just go if we don't like it then we can go to Travel Town. Win Win.

First it wasn't crowded which I was surprised being FREE. He did very well looking at everything.

Things he loved - riding the saddle and watching himself in a movie. Getting on a fake horse and dressing up like a cowboy. Being in jail. Seeing the buffalo. Wasn't really into the Children's Place...I think it was cause we didn't really get a chance to look since there were students there.

He loved being outside going into the wagon, seeing the waterfall, and fish.

Definitely a place to go. We brought lunch and ran around in the park. Never went to Travel Town that day cause we were there the whole time.
