We’ve been traveling every summer with our kids since 2018 seeing our beautiful country. We love to find things to do and see in every state and the aquarium and botanical gardens did not disappoint. The sea animals, bugs, butterflies and beautiful gardens were enjoyed by all.
We are traveling to Michigan from Atizona, knocking out some states off our bucket list.
