We visit nature and history places all over the world and most of them are bigger than Rookery Bay. But Rookery Bay did a great job engaging our kids and having exhibits that they could enjoy. They also gave him tons of prizes for finishing the little activity...and bribery goes far with my kids.
We went on the nature trail but didn't see anything. For the first half, we were happy just to walk but we ran the second half because the mosquitos were so bad. Some of the worst I've ever seen. We had purchased bug spray at the front desk but we must have missed a few spots on one of my sons because he was eaten alive. Yeah, my husband sprayed him. And I didn't want to spray the face of my young daughter because I was afraid she would rub it in her eyes in a fit...well, the bugs thought her face delicious. She had some kind of allergic reaction to the bites and then got a black eye from one...it was close enough to her eye that the anti-coagulant gave her that reaction. So she looked hideous for the rest of the trip!
So use tons of repellant OR go on a really windy day!
