Statewars - Texas - Wednesday Favorite Attraction / Event

in statewars •  last year 
They say a picture is worth a 1000 words, so let me take you on this magical picture journey. I have to admit I got a little lazy on this one so I apologize. This was actually the last article that I wrote last week and was feeling a little burned out by the time I got to this one, but hope you enjoy it regardless.

My Top 5 Places Not Yet Discussed

The Houston Zoo has always been a favorite place for me to visit. They have a lot of awesome animals including the white crocodile pictured below (not albino notice the eyes aren't pink). If you're driving to the Zoo be sure to get their early because the parking around the zoo fills up quicky. They were doing some renovations about 4 or 5 years ago and not sure if I've been back since they've been completed.

The USS Lexington is located in Corpus Christi right on the beach. It's huge and looks even bigger when your down below deck walking around the inside of the ship. It goes on forever. It's hot to go do during the Summer so if you have a chance to visit I'd recommend Late Spring or Early Fall so you can enjoy both the ship without being too hot and the beach without it being too cold.

If I remember correctly the last time I've been here was to check out Body World. If you haven't had a chance to visit one of those traveling exhibits I highly recommend it. If you have a chance to visit this museum they usually always have something cool going on with all the energy businesses that sponsor different exhibits.

Six flags has a pretty awesome firework display at the end of every night during the summer (or at least they used to). Plus, with the attached water park, it's a nice way to cool off during those hot summer days. If you enjoy visiting Six Flags it's your basic Six Flags with different attractions. You can also check out Six Flags Over Texas if you're in the Dallas / Fort Worth area.

Finally there is Sea Word. It's still a really fun place to visit and with all the bad publicity it's gotten over the past few years, it maybe worth while visiting while it's still open. The shows, in my opinion, are not as cool without the trainers in the water interacting with the animals, but it's still fun seeing these awesome creatures up close and personal.

Yeah we're up to day 3. You can start with any day you want and just make 1 post or 3 posts up to you! Thanks for the help @dksart.

Nice, all look like fun places to visit :)

They are definitely fun places to visit!

We got ourselves a crock lover! Hehe zoos are always a fun place.

I was never aware SeaWorld was in a few different states. I always just assumed just Florida and one other state! While they do seem to always be on receiving end of a few organizations looking to grind an axe on them. I can’t imagine them being filled with people who do not love their job.

I’ve spoken with some people who use to work on places like SeaWorld it always anger them when someone would claim they don’t love the animals. No one cleans massive dropping for the kind of pay they make unless they really love the animals and the job. Such things do not smell great at all and I was told was one of the more hated tasks they had to carry out. They had a rather large passion for sea creatures and where glad they spent so many years working for places like SeaWorld.

Yeah I have a cousin who boycotts the parks, but I agree. It's a business that makes money, but the people that work their care passionately about the animals and I think overall does good to raise awareness of these animals and I'm sure conduct research and help with rescues, etc. I really enjoy visiting Sea Worlds overall!

I've always wanted to go to Corpus Christi!

Everything looks fun but I will definitely stick with Houston Museum of Natural Science, I will definitely visit!
