This holiday season, head to the Museum of Discovery and Science in Fort Lauderdale and spend the day exploring hundreds of interactive exhibits.
With so many folks in South Florida welcoming relatives for the holidays, this is a great place to keep in mind because, rain or shine, hot or cold, you can please everyone.
Take a ride on the Everglades Airboat Adventure, experience hurricane force winds in the Storm Center, dig for fossils, see a giant prehistoric megaladon and fall in love with North American river otters -- for starters.
What else can you do? You can hang with bats, meet an alligator, take a ride to Mars or soar through the skies in an FA-18 cockpit simulator. For big time fun, catch a movie in the five-story AutoNation® IMAX 3D theater. This is the largest screen in South Florida.
Now playing through Jan. 24, 2013 is The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. You can also see Born To Be Wild 3D and The Arctic 3D. Here's a link for show times and more info.
