Art Museum
“Always an amazing exhibit present and permanent collections are impressive. ”

Science Museum
“This museum has it all – a dinosaur hall, planetarium, IMAX theater, and butterfly exhibit. I’ve always enjoyed the gemstone collection. Parking can be a nightmare since the zoo is close-by. I’d Uber there instead.”

Theatre
“If visting between April and November, check out Miller Outdoor Theater for free shows. They have regular seats, but it's more fun to grab an old blanket (Let us know if you need one) and sit on the hill. Tip: You can bring your own concessions, including alcoholic beverages, but no glass. ”

“Kick back on vintage, mid-century couches and snack on house-made pastries at Black Hole, a relaxed, St. Thomas University-area coffee house. Created by the same folks behind Antidote and Montrose's Poison girl, Black Hole is a welcome escape for study-filled afternoons. Go for the Cajeta Latte (a special blend of goat's -milk-based caramel and coffee) and one of the tasty menu items like the spinach quiche, caprese sandwich or vegan cookies.”
