  • Aquariums

    Oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface, and we’ve only explored about 5% of it. That leaves so much of the Earth that we know nothing about. Not everyone can dive right into the water to look at the ocean life, so why not do the next best thing? Aquariums give us a window into a whole other world. Most locations around the world have aquariums; some larger than others.

  • Cross Country Skiing

    Cross country skiing began thousands of years ago as a means of transportation and is still used for that purpose today.
