Once again, the Blue Star Museums Initiative begins tomorrow, Memorial Day, and goes until Labor Day. Last summer, we happily took advantage of the free museum admission offered to military families at participating facilities. I noticed one new addition in my local area to last year’s list, so check your state, even if there was nothing on it last year. This is only the second year running, so we can hope that it will only get wider participation every year.
While not a Blue Star Museum, I did read about a cool place called Showplace of Citrus in Clermont, FL where you can pick fruit, watch for wildlife, feed cattle, take a tour around the ranch in a swamp buggy, & grab all sorts of fresh stuff at their market. Their commercial grove crop goes into Florida's Natrual brand orange juice. They have a website – showplaceofcitrus.com. If it's not too far off the beaten path, it might be a fun place to visit.
