Science Museum
“This museum has it all – a dinosaur hall, planetarium, IMAX theater, and butterfly exhibit. I’ve always enjoyed the gemstone collection. Parking can be a nightmare since the zoo is close-by. I’d Uber there instead.”

“Kick back on vintage, mid-century couches and snack on house-made pastries at Black Hole, a relaxed, St. Thomas University-area coffee house. Created by the same folks behind Antidote and Montrose's Poison girl, Black Hole is a welcome escape for study-filled afternoons. Go for the Cajeta Latte (a special blend of goat's -milk-based caramel and coffee) and one of the tasty menu items like the spinach quiche, caprese sandwich or vegan cookies.”
