I guess everybody had the same idea as me and went to Busch Gardens on the 4th! This is in my top ten of places to go. It has something for everybody from the thrill seekers to shoppers. I took my son to Forest of Fun and he is still asking me to see Elmo. He played in the water the whole time. Which reminds me, if you have a little one, bring a change of clothes, swim diaper, towel and suntan lotion. Then we hopped on the train which is his second favorite thing to do. We sit in the very front because when the engineer fills the train with water he makes a whistle sound that sounds just like a real train whistle. Oh, my son loves that! I have been there so many times and I still haven’t seen and done everything they have to offer! My favorites are Apollo’s Chariot, Griffon, Forest of Fun, Breakfast with Elmo, Pet Shenanigans and Howl-O-Scream. I just can’t wait to see Christmas Town!
