Gulf Coast Exploreum Family 4 Pack for only $24

Living Social Mobile’s Daily Deal right now is for a Family 4 pack (2 Adult Combo Tickets and any combination of 2 Child, Youth, or Senior Tickets) to the Gulf Coast Exploreum in Mobile for only $24.  If you are heading to the Exploreum before January 21, 2011 (when the certificate expires), you will want to purchase this to help save some money.   Be sure to read the fine print before you purchase so you know exactly what you are buying.

But be sure to head over to Living Social in a hurry though…this offer is only good for another 11 hours or so. 

See our review of the Gulf Coast Exploreum.

The Arrival of Santa Claus

I know…shame on me for even putting a Christmas post up before we have Thanksgiving.  I almost didn’t post this but I decided that since Santa is already on his way to our area, there is no point in putting it off!  Here are some of the places that you might spy Santa.  As always, confirm the dates and times before you go.

Bass Pro Shops – Eek!  Santa has already arrived!  He arrived November 6th and can be visited until Dec. 24th.  Check the schedule before you go because there will be lots of crafts and activities available at different times throughout the next two months.

Cordova Mall – Arrives November 12th at 7pm with an event

Eastern Shore Center – Arrives November 13th

Destin Commons – Santa arrival and tree lighting on November 20

Do you know of any other places where Santa is stopping by?  As it gets closer to December, I will post more of the holiday activities!

Bass Pro Family Summer Camp

This is the last week for the Bass Pro Family Summer Camp!  “Camp” occurs on Tuesday and Thursday as well as Saturday and Sunday from noon to 6.  Check the website for the official schedule and be sure that the Spanish Fort and Destin stores are participating!

Weekend Roundup – May 7th, 8th, and 9th

 Here is your weekend roundup of activities.  If you know of a family friendly event going on around the area, please leave a comment.  As always, call ahead or follow the links to make sure that the information is still accurate.

Mystery Photo Monday #6

You probably drive past this on a regular basis.  You may not have noticed it or you might have seen it wondered why it is there and what it represents.  Do you know?

We hope you will play along!  If you know where/what this is, leave a comment in this post.  I will post the answer tomorrow!

Eastern Shore Center – Spanish Fort, Alabama

This post is the last in a series of Day Trip to Mobile, Alabama posts.  See the other places that we visited:  Gulf Coast Exploreum, Fort Conde, USS Alabama and Bass Pro Shops

The Eastern Shore Center is a great shopping center.  There are stores for everyone in the family, great restaurants, and our personal favorite-a splash pad!  When we went to this splash pad it was packed.    The Eastern Shore has lots of great family friendly activities.  They allow birthday parties at the splash pad, they show free movies at the fountain, and they are having a Safe Kid’s Day on Friday during Alabama’s Tax Free Week.  Remember their swimsuits, a change of clothes, sunscreen and a towel.  The splash pad is a great place for the parents to relax while the kids run off some steam.

Bass Pro Shops – Spanish Fort, Alabama

We have had a love/hate relationship with Bass Pro Shops ever since my husband started doing some major hiking.  Every time he schedules a new Appalachian Trail hike, we schedule a visit to the Bass Pro.  I love to visit the store…I hate the amount of money the store is able to pull from my wallet!  Bass Pro is a great store to take the kids to.  If you need an item that relates to the great outdoors, they probably have in stock!  The store is HUGE!  Not only are there all sorts of fun things to test out before you buy but there is a humongous fish tank in the back of the store with a variety of very large (are you sensing a big theme here?!) fish swimming.  You can check out the aquarium and then head to the 2nd floor where there is an arcade game.  You could spend hours in this place!

Bass Pro Shop also has a ton of kid-oriented activities.  At Christmastime, you can do a craft and sit on Santa’s lap.  At Easter, they had an egg hunt.  Check the schedule for their events, workshops, and food tastings!

USS Alabama – Mobile, Alabama

This post is part of a series of Day Trip to Mobile, Alabama posts.  See the other places that we visited:  Gulf Coast Exploreum and Fort Conde. 

After visiting the Exploreum and Fort Conde, we drove to Battleship Memorial Park where the USS Alabama rests.  Admission is a little pricey (but well worth it) so after spending money at the Exploreum, we decided to skip the actual tour of the USS Alabama.  It was also packed when we arrived!  We plan on visiting the battleship next time we go to Mobile.  Entrance into the parking is $2.00 a car.  Admission to the USS Alabama is $12.00 for 12 years and older, $6.00 for 6-12 year olds and it is free for 5 and under.  Tours are self-guided and the website recommends that you plan on spending approximately 2 hours on your visit.  Bring a picnic and have lunch in the park!

Have you visited the USS Alabama?  Do you have any tips or hints for a visit to the battleship?
Mobile Things To Do

Back to School Tax Free Weekend in Alabama

Unfortunately for the second year in a row, Florida will not be participating in a tax free week this year.  Alabama, however, is!  In keeping with our Mobile, AL themed posts this week, I thought that I would let you know that Tax Free Weekend is August 7-9th.  I checked the list to see which local governments have notified the Alabama Department of Revenue and it looks like both Spanish Fort and Foley are participating.  This means that you can check out the Tanger Outlets in Foley or hit the Eastern Shore Center in Spanish Fort and get tax free shopping.  There are some limitations though as to what items qualify and how much you can purchase to qualify for tax free.  Check the Department of Revenue website to see what qualifies and as always, call ahead to make sure the information is still accurate and current!
