The theme for the lucky contest winner going to the Lehigh Valley is Discover the Action during a weekend full of summer fun. The Getaway package includes an overnight stay at the Holiday Inn Express Bethlehem, four passes to Dutch Springs, and four passes to the DaVinci Science Center.

Dutch Springs may be one of the best kept secret in Lehigh Valley. If you are looking for a little more adventure, Dutch Springs is the place for you. The 50 acre lake is a natural setting for fun in the Lehigh Valley. The Aqua Park, a water park on the water, and the Sky Challenge, a wall climb and high ropes adventure course, is the formula for fun and adventure close to home.

The Da Vinci Science Center is Open for ExSCIting Possibilities to all curious minds seven days a week and offers one of the Lehigh Valley’s finest family-friendly experiences. Its two-story exhibit floor is filled with engaging experiences that connect visitors with the wonders of science in their lives, tomorrow’s innovative careers, their enjoyment for discovery, and their creative curiosities. This active and fun approach is inspired by Leonardo da Vinci and transformative figures who have succeeded him into the 21st century. The Center’s exhibits are popular with people ages one and up and include a state-of-the-art ocean touch tank, a windy hurricane simulator, a WFMZ 69 News weather forecasting simulator, and dark tunnel maze.

Best Egg Hunt Ever!

Work 2013

Everyone seems to have egg hunts in spring, and let’s face it; they’re all variations on a theme. If you’re looking for a family outing that will provide the kids with something more than a sugar rush, check out the Fossil Egg Hunt at the Calvert Marine Museum on March 30 starting at 10:30 a.m. Designed for children age 3-8, the kids are divided into two groups to give everyone a fair chance at the goodies. Best of all, participants get to keep the fossils. Bring your own basket for egg collecting. Free with museum admission.

 Also at the CalvertMarineMuseum, enjoy learning about otters, the merry prankster of the mammal world, on April 1 for a fun April Fools Day activity. Sign up for the Otter Breakfast and learn about otter enrichment, habitat, and the mischief these mammals get into with their playful curiosity. Go behind the scenes to talk with a keeper and observe a feeding. 

A continental breakfast will be provided as part of the fee. Children must be at least 8 years old and accompanied by an adult to participate. Space is limited, pre-registration required. Fee is $15 per person, $10 for members and includes museum admission. Call 410-326-2042 ext. 41 to register.  Program begins at 9 a.m.
