Vehicles leisurely roll across African Safari Wildlife Park's landscape, yielding to a host of friendly creatures. Camels, giraffes, zebras, forest-dwelling bongos, Asian sika deer, and Scottish highland cows await you. Guests can hold cups filled with feed, which exotic muzzles devour, and a walking area provides an up-close look at enclosed species such as the rare white alligator. Warm-weather months bring out additional activities, including animal rides, pig races, and educational animal shows where guests can interact with small animals. Food and beverages from African Safari's ice-cream shop, snack bar, and grill help sate midday hungers caused by watching a guanaco sneeze.

A prodigy in his own right, Thomas Alva Edison's inventions changed the trajectory of technology before electronics were even a thing. The Edison Birthplace Museum celebrates Edison's life and his contributions to modern society with a collection of memorabilia. Opened by his wife and daughter, the home has been restored and refurnished to appear as it did in 1847, the year Thomas Edison was born.

  • The Building: Samuel O. Edison built the three-story brick house for his wife and family in 1842.

  • Eye Catcher: The room Edison was born in features intricate wallpaper, a white washbasin, and a period-accurate rope bed and handmade coverlet dating to the 1840s.

  • Don't Miss: The master bedroom's pine furniture set, one of the few original pieces, belonged to Edison's sister. The bedroom's closets hold clothing that used to grace the shoulders of Edison and his wife.

  • Hidden Gem: Behind the parlor, a trove of "Edisonia" includes family photos and a collection of his many inventions, such as a phonograph, a stock ticker, and a talking doll.

  • Bring Something Home: The gift shop stocks books about the inventor and his life, for both kids and grownups, as well as CDs of music recorded using Edison's electrical technique.

After 20 years of successfully frightening fear fans, The Haunted Hydro is back for another season of shudders with more than 50 actors, multiple attractions, and an “Evil Inferno” theme. With a Monster Bash ticket, guests begin their journey by entering the 20-foot Tunnel of Terror leading to Hydro’s cursed chambers. Inside, realistically made-up monsters and mutants make screams scream in horror and force flesh to sprout goose feathers. Visitors can also venture into the brand-new Lair of Scare, a dark cavern of undeath where each turn is as futile as the one before it. A free paintball ticket gives brave citizens the chance to hunt the zombies that lurk in Paintball Alley, and a free soft drink soothes sore throats resulting from too much shrieking, screeching, and light- bulb eating.

It's common knowledge that there are five great lakes: Superior, Michigan, Huron, Ontario, and Erie. At the National Museum of the Great Lakes, though, visitors delve much deeper into the national significance and history of the famed bodies of water. Exhibits cover topics such as the lakes' role in commercial shipping routes, area lighthouses, and the shipwrecks that lie deep below the water's surface. Visitors can also explore the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald in Lake Superior and learn about Lake Ontario's "Queen of the Lakes." A big part of the fun is exploring the adjacent museum ship, the Col. James M. Schoomaker, which offers even more hands-on opportunities to learn about local maritime history and a welcome place to practice your ship horn impression (open May 1 through October 31).
