#2: There's a new water park
You'll be the first on your block to check out the new park. Aquatica will take water parks to a whole new level when the 59-acre, South Seas-themed attraction opens this month. With wave pools, lagoons full of fish, and 36 water slides, there will be something for everyone. Don't miss the tube slide that shoots riders underwater and through a tank of playful dolphins. If you're looking for a more relaxing experience, float around the lazy river that's surrounded by lush scenery and exotic birds. And top it all off with a picnic or sand-castle-building on the park's 80,000-square-foot white-sand beach ($39 for adults, $33 for kids ages 3 to 9).
