I was really looking forward to the Energy Encounter center. I called twice and got a message machine giving me the hours for that day. We drove 30 minutes to get there to find out the place was closed for the week. So, unless you can find a real person to talk to, don't believe any message you hear. Poor... More

There is a clothing optional portion and a regular swimsuit area. The clothes optional one is presently informally accepted. It has signs warning those that prefer not to go where folks are sunbathing and swimming sans suits. These folks are very considerate. Plenty of room for everyone.

I go the the power plane every summer for the turtle walks. They are EXCELLENT. They are informative and especially important for children to learn about protecting endangered species. FP&L does an amazing job for sea turtle conservation - and they do it for free. I love it.

Lots of hands on activities. Fun for my 4 year old and 9 year old. More like a children's science museum than I had initially expected and free!

I love going here with kids. It is free and they have a treasure hunt. Most of the things are hands on and there are puzzles in a big room which are tricky. We spent about 2 hours there and the little one I was with was 3 and he picked up a lot of knowledge
