Children love to be in on the secret, don't they? Whenever there is something different or uncommon they want to be the first to tell their friends about it. If you can, it's fun to take time in your vacation to stop at some unusual spots.

Often you don't even know of any such places to find out about. There is a website sponsored by Theme Parks Online. This site lists theme parks in all the states. If you click on the links you get all kinds of information about each park.

Some of this information details the attractions at the park. Some of it is about park hours and seasons. The information you might find most interesting is the facts about discounts.

For instance, Legoland, in California, is a park with a unique theme. The site explains what the park is all about and what attractions are available. Then, it gives ticket information.

Children always pay less than adults. Adults with AAA cards can get a discount of ten dollars per person per day for their group. The second day or subsequent days are always cheaper than the first day. Look for deals like this at any park.

Hershey's Park is a place that most people have heard of but fewer people have actually seen. Its theme, unusual for a park, is candy. If you look at the Theme Parks Online website, you will find deals for this park as well.

If you want to get more information, you can go to the Pennsylvania Visitor's Center, or their tourism bureau to find out more. You can often find unpublished specials by going straight to the source and calling Hershey's Park itself.

Ordinarily, children go to Hershey's Park for about half the price as adults. Note, however, that they consider kids to be only those of the ages of three to eight. A nine year old, to them, is an adult.

Branson, Missouri is becoming more popular with many people, especially the older ones. There are things for kids to do there as well. Silver Dollar City is one of these activities.

Silver Dollar City is a combination of amusements. There are demonstrations of all sorts of folk art. There is glass blowing, rope making, and candle dipping, for example. Kids may find these displays fascinating.

They will certainly have fun at the other part of the park. This offers the thrill of the modern amusement park type rides. There are also two other parks in Branson that partner with Silver Dollar City to host a City Hopper Pass.

Kids' tickets generally cost about ten dollars less than adults'. However, there are discounts to be had by going online. There are also coupons that can be printed. You can print and buy your tickets online as well for further savings.

The supply of novelty theme parks is not quite endless. There are plenty of them, though. The best way to find out about them is to listen to people who have been to them. Then, look for discounted tickets to make your kids' adventures a little more affordable.

If you're planning a visit to Seattle Washington and will be spending a few days in town, you might seriously consider purchasing a city pass. This pass will allow you to experience several of the more popular attractions this great city has to offer at a fraction of their regular prices. It will also allow you daytime (6 am through 7 pm daily) transportation through the cities Metro system. This pass is good for nine days from its first use and provides you with several options for activities during your stay.

The first activity offered by these passes is a visit to the Museum of Flight. Watch in amazement as the history of flight comes to life right before your very eyes. From a tour of the original Air Force one to flight simulators of modern day jet flights this museum has a little bit to offer every kid, big and small, in your group. Enjoy the many exhibits and family activities that are available here and have fun exploring the history of flight both personal and military in out country. This is something I would recommend even if it weren't part of the pass and is well worth a visit.

The Seattle Harbor tour is the next event on this list. This tour is offered by Argosy Cruises and will probably be a highlight of your time in Seattle. If not a highlight, then perhaps the boost you needed to try some of the more elaborate tours that Argosy has to offer. This tour lasts about an hour long and provides a tour of the bay while pointing out some of the stunning scenery that surrounds Seattle. You do have the option of upgrading your cruise to one of the others offered by Argosy for an additional fee. If you've never been in open water before, I recommend starting with a smaller cruise and seeing how your sea legs (and stomach) measure up before embarking on a longer or dinner cruise.

Next is a favorite for children of all ages-yes, moms and dads count. This is a trip to the Woodland Park Zoo. This zoo has won awards for its natural looking exhibits and delights guests with them as well. This zoo is much more than lions, tigers, and bears. This zoo has great deal to offer any family who would make a day of it, and I seriously recommend that that is precisely what you do. While you're there, you might want to step over to the rose garden next door (the rose garden is free of charge but quite beautiful) and enjoy the beauty and aroma the roses present.

Next is the Pacific Science Center. From video games and laser shows to fascinating science exhibits the Pacific Science Center really is a fun place to visit. While you're there you might want to check out the IMAX theatre and see what is playing. Among the permanent exhibits is a Dinosaur exhibit from the Mesozoic Era, a tropical butterfly house, an Insect Village, and a saltwater Tide Pool where little ones can see and touch many of the creatures that can be found in the Puget Sound.

And finally, the Seattle Aquarium, which really needs no explanation. Explore life under the sea and the many salt water and fresh water creatures that can be found in and around the Puget Sound. This will be a highlight for everyone in your group I can almost guarantee.

If any of these or most of these is appealing to you and/or those you are traveling with, then purchasing a city pass is probably a wise investment. Even if you don't visit all of the attractions, you can save money by visiting a few.
