A couple of weeks ago one of the “deal” websites that I visit on a regular basis was promoting a free day at museums all across the country courtesy of the Smithsonian Museums. There aren’t really any cool museums near us in Fort Pierce, so that made me look a little further. I eventually settled on the Miami Science Museum.
Miami is only about two hours south, so I figured we could do a nice day trip. Sophie and Sawyer both really like kids museums, but I was a little worried this museum was going to be a little too much over their heads. Luckily they had a lot of stuff geared towards kids, so they still had a great time.
The only bad thing was I wasn’t the only one who saw the free day. The museum was swamped with people. So that took a little away from our experience. But we saw pretty much everything and even got a free planetarium show, so it was well worth the trip.
Since we were going to be in Miami anyway, I wanted to try and see a Miami Marlins baseball game. The Marlins are well out of playoff contention, but I always enjoy seeing baseball stadiums. Plus the Marlins stadium is brand new. So I checked out StubHub.com too see what tickets were going for and I found lots of options for about a buck a ticket. After paying taxes and fees, the total bill was about $13.00. Hard to beat that!
So after going to the museum for free and getting free baseball tickets, we managed to have a nice day trip to Miami without spending too much money!
