The most unique part of our visit was Gatorland. First, I have to call out how amazing the staff there was… they clearly love their jobs, love entertaining, and do not take themselves too seriously. It was great to get to observe and touch all the fabulous predators. Carter loved ziplining over the gators so much that we ended up going back to try their entire zipline course.
I can’t say enough good things about the Newseum. We spent way more time than expected there because to the sheer number and quality of exhibits. But I think Carter’s highlight was showcasing his reporting talent.
It was really cool to take the light rail in. As we arrived we were welcomed to the sounds and the sights of the day immediately as the cadets marched in their parade into the stadium adjacent to the train station.
