The Museum of Man, voted runner-up in 10news.com’s A-List 2011 Best Museum category, explores and shines a light on the emergence of man with five standing collections and special exhibits, filled with the cultural and physical anthropology artifacts housed and studied within its confines. Mummies are featured in the Ancient Egypt permanent exhibit, grasping the attention of attendees of all ages and complimenting grandparents on their youthful vigor. Tots toddle in the footsteps of archeologists in the Children’s Discovery Center’s interactive learning experience, Discover Egypt. The museum’s 7,000-square-foot west wing bursts at the seams with artifacts from four million years of human evolution, featuring prime pieces of physical anthropological evidence in the Footsteps Through Time exhibit. Photographs collect images of anthropologists in the midst of rapt explorations and discoveries in the temporary Adventures in Photography exhibit, a visual story which spans a hundred years and six continents. Additionally, the Modern Day Mummy and Strange Bones exhibits apply medical know-how to unveil historic secrets of the human body.
Chula Vista Nature Center provides guests with dozens of ways to encounter the birds, marine life, and other organisms that call the refuge home. Visitors can pet gentle rays or admire preening sea turtles before visiting the underwater discovery center to spy on majestic sea horses, spotted octopi, and exploding ants. Outside, 1.5 miles of walking trails lead out to the shore of San Diego Bay, offering convenient stops at native-plant gardens, Raptor Row, Eagle Mesa (home to majestic bald and golden eagles), and a shorebird aviary. Among the many native water birds and shorebirds housed by the aviary are light-footed clapper rails, one of California's most endangered bird species.
Lil' Piggy's mouthwatering comfort fare takes its cue from Memphis, where slathering style and smoky aromatics crown motivated pork-based cooking. Choose from one of more than 100 beers stored cold in their bottles, and then adjust your wet-nap for a journey through the menu of savory porks and beefs cooked low and slow over Hickory hardwoods. Break in your barbecue fork on a piggy plate of pulled pork ($11.99–$14.99) or baby back ribs served wet or dry ($10.99–$22.99). While the mouth can't avoid a respectably sloppy time at Lil' Piggy's, the fingers can stay clean and cool thanks to the bread-barricaded Bar-B-Q bacon burger with smoked applewood bacon, onion rings, and cheddar jack cheese ($9.99) or the lean pulled-chicken sammich topped with slaw and slapped on a potato bun ($9.99).
