  2. Launch into space! In addition to their amazing exhibits, MiSci has a line up of shows in their Planetarium that are OUT OF THIS WORLD! The full show schedule is available here
  3. Catch a flick! Summer blockbusters are in full swing at Bow Tie Cinemas. For their updated schedule and to purchase tickets in advance, click here
  4. Dive In! Via Aquarium is a great spot to explore the natural wonders of different aquatic environments and get up close and personal with all different types of fish! When you're done, hop across the hallway and check out Via Entertainment's games and food to make it a whole day of fun!
  5. Strike it big! Head on down to Boulevard Bowl for a few frames and get cool while heating the lanes! 

BONUS! For a little 21+ fun try your luck at Rivers Casino where the air is cool but the table games are always hot!
