Docking Your Kids at Port Discovery

Apr 1, 2008
Many adults take a new view on vacations when children are born into the family. They generally decide to take one of two routes. One is to leave the little kids under five years old with a babysitter while they enjoy their vacations, which is obviously unfair to the smaller children. The more often chosen route is to just not go on any more vacations until the children are older. This is not just unfair to the children, but also to the parents who are giving up years of valuable vacation time. The overall reason for this is that it is extremely difficult to find a good vacation attraction that kids under the age of five can really enjoy. They get bored with the beach really fast, are too small for the really fun rides at the theme parks, and have no interest in festivals and events.

There is a solution to be found in the beautiful city of Baltimore Maryland. This is the Port Discovery Museum. This wonderful establishment was founded for no other reason but to make absolutely certain that little kids can enjoy their Baltimore vacation just as much as the adults. Every exhibit is catered just for kids. The best part is that the little ones are learning while they are having a blast!

To give you an idea of what to expect at Port Discovery, picture a restaurant where kids are the cooks and the servers. This is The Diner Exhibit. Here your children will enter into an area that is strongly reminiscent of an old-school type diner. The parents will take a seat while the kids will cook the food and ring up it up at the register, and then help eat it! Kids leave this particular exhibit with a sense of pride and a side order of mathematical knowledge.

Then there is the ever-popular Sensation Station. Here your little ones will learn to separate their senses and learn how to use them one at a time. There are puzzles and games here teach your kids a world of information on general shades of colors and a variety of shapes, and the difference in them all. There are many games in this area, so be prepared to spend a little time here.

On the retail end of your child's educational fun, there is the famed Harvest Hill attraction. At this one your children get the opportunity work a market area. They can buy items with their Museum money, sell items to other children and adults and even do a bit of trading on the side with other child dealers. Your child will love all this, but nothing will compare with the electric crane that they get to use to move their merchandise from one place to another.

It is not longer a necessity to leave your smaller children with a babysitter and feel guilty for your entire vacation or to simply not enjoy one yourself as they grow to a particular age. Now, thanks to the Port Discovery Museum in Baltimore Maryland, age is no longer a factor in the vacation equation. Everyone can have fun in Maryland!
