On the paved roads around Canyonlands you are really only seeing a tiny fraction of the park. To really explore Canyonlands, try renting a jeep here and go off road. You can find lots of formations, from caves to arches to crazy steep roads through canyons. Not for the faint of heart and certainly not for the inexperienced driver. A great way to spend a day!
Hilo Hattie does have some really nice Hawaiin themed clothes and other things but the prices are insane. You will be shocked at every price tag how much things cost. If you have the money though and want to spend it on Hawaiin related items, this is probably a good place. I especially like their floral ties. Very classy.
A trip to Oaho would not be complete without a visit to the Arizone memorial. It's totally free but very popular so be sure to arrive early. You get to view a very interesting film on the memorial and then take a shuttle ferry out to the ship itself. The whole thing is done with a lot of class and is very moving. This is one stop not to be missed while in Hawaii.
I would recommend this to a couple of bored people waiting for a movie or something, it is certainly not worth making a destination out of. While it definitely is fun, and more interesting than a normal mini golf course in some ways, it lacks elevation and creativity in the hazards. A wider variety of obstacles would make this mini golf course a lot funner!
FAO Schwarz is a kids dream come true! Floors and floors of toys and you can play with tons of them! More than one kid can take in at a time this store will definetly be the highlight of a young kids NYC visit. Lots of demos and product displays will get you interested in things you never thought of! Great place to buy weird things for people back home too!
Alcatrz isn't the coolest thing to do in the whole world but it is a must see if you visit the bay area. You will enjoy Alcatraz based movies (of which there are many) much better after visiting! It gets pretty cold out there and on the boat so if you go in the morning dress warmly! Getting your picture taken in the cells is pretty cool but as a whole, not something to go crazy over.
This aquarium is certainly the best I've been to, it is truly impressive. There are giant tanks with some amazing fish and sharks. The coolest part are the tunnles that you get to walk through with fish on all sides of you. I really haven't been anywhere else like this. Amazing. Expensive but worth it.
If you want an alternative to the exploratorium the Lawernce Hall of Science has some activities that rival, if not beat exhibits at the exp. My favorites include a mystery room where you use really simple forensic science to determine a guilty member of a panel. They regularly have special exhibits which are excellent quality and lots of fun. The drive up is a little long and treacherous but this place is definetly worth going to and getting a yearly pass
The Exploratorium is probably the coolest hands on museum I have ever been to... and my parents took us to a lot growing up. There are hundreds of exhibits, all hands on, and all kept in pretty good shape. It is expensive to get in but you can easily spend all day here. The tactile dome is especially cool, if you want to realize how important your vision is, try this experience!
Ok, I have been in pet stores bigger and nicer than this aquarium. It is extremely tiny, has no big fish, and all of the water is murky and boring. I guess there isn't too much to do that is really family oriented in Detroit but please, get up to the Det. Zoo, there are fish there. Or go to a fish store, you will see more interesting fish.
