    If you have not been to the Air Zoo for a while note that they underwent a major renovation in 2004 (a new building, a huge mural, a 4D :) theatre and rides were added), and on October 1, 2011 they expanded yet again by opening a 50,000-square-foot addition on its Main Campus. The expansion features new and current exhibits, aircraft and space artifacts. They have activities for the entire family, though we heard one father complain that his three-year-old was upset that he was not allowed to climb the Blackbird.

      Officially, the general admission is $8 (kids under 4 are free), but we have not seen any ticket checking, and people were getting in and out all the time. One local told us before we went there that now the entrance is free and you pay only for the rides, so see if it makes sense to stop by for an hour or so even if you are just passing by to try seeing some exhibits and feel the general flavor without charge (you may wanna spend a couple of minutes in the museum store before heading to the entrance located "in the clouds."

        If you plan a longer stay we would recommend to think about bringing your own sandwiches. Their food service is so-so: they serve only simple burgers, hot dogs, wraps and sandwiches with chips. Their (OK quality) American coffee (no espresso there) costs $3 for a huge cup, which would marginally make sense for us only if shared. They have coat check, and we think that they can take a back pack – call them to make sure they will. This way your lunch can wait for you in the coat room. The best photos you can make will be those taken from the observation deck on the 2nd floor, where tables are waiting for you to have lunch there.

    Тоже визуально интересно.  Этакая диагональная линия из постепенно повышающихся небоскребов.  И овальчики понизу.  О

      Да, с самолёта много визуально интересного можно наснимать. Приезжайте опять, и если погода будет подходящая, можно попробовать и вам с Валей полёт организовать. Правда нам с погодой три выходных подряд не везло до этого полёта.

        Сложно обещать.  И вообще, в мире столько интересного и неувиденного, что очень трудно убедить себя, что имеет смысл куда-то ехать еще раз.
