Seven dollars will get you into the 5,000 acre park, where you’ll find ample opportunity to bike, fish, hike, bird-watch, camp, and stargaze. You’ll also find a fair amount of alligators. You’ve been warned. Note: check for flooding closures before you make the drive.
2. Go to the Dark Side of the Moon at the HMNS's Planetarium
The Planetarium’s Pink Floyd-inspired laser-lights show is way cooler than staring at your friend’s lava lamp.
These karts boast a 9-HP Honda GX-270 engine, so this is guaranteed to be one of the fastest five minutes of your life (besides that one time at band camp). Ten bucks gets you one ride, but look out for coupons and discount days.
