  • Flint RiverQuarium
    After a flood devastated the area in 1994, Flint RiverQuarium was built to educate future generations about the geographic and ecologic conditions in the Flint River Basin. Families explore exhibits made to look like natural habitats, in which native creatures splash, swim, and make ill-advised deals with cunning sea witches to become human. Size: seven permanent exhibits Eye Catcher: The RiverQuarium Blue Hole Spring holds 175,000 gallons of water and stretches 22 feet deep. Inside, 120 species of fish, turtles, and alligators swim, from the enormous 8-foot-long Gulf sturgeon to adorable turtles such as the red-eared slider. Permanent Mainstay: The Cypress Creek Aviary houses indigenous birds such as the great egret and little blue heron. Don't Miss: The Hatchery, where fish are raised from egg to fingerling before being transferred to other exhibits Hands-On Experiments: Get up close and personal with one of the Flint River Basin's denizens during animal encounters, regularly scheduled on the weekend. Catch a Movie" The Imagination Theater shows short films centered on local species, such as fire ants and alligators. Special Programs: On Discovery Days (the first and third Sunday of every month) the RiverQuarium comes to life with arts and crafts activities, story tellers, and live animal presentations.

  • A M F Bowling Centers
    "You're up." At more than 200 AMF Bowling locations across the U.S., that message is passed between friends as they heft a ball, step to the line, and take aim. Now synonymous with bowling, AMF was founded in 1901 as American Machine and Foundry. It wasn't until 1946 that the company made a splash in bowling, when it introduced the automated pin spotter to the public. Today, AMF's nationwide network of bowling centers is a source of year-round entertainment for people of all ages. Outfitted with a classic bowling alley design, the centers also feature the latest technologies, from high-tech scoring systems to the ability to share experiences on social media.
