  8. I love when museums and gardens offer free days. We have a few here in Phoenix, and it is awesome with a toddler- makes you not feel bad if you leave early if they are grumpy!

  10. Here's to hoping the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry wins first prize. I always enjoyed visits to museums as a kid, and it would be great if other children get that same opportunity (for free though!).
