On Saturday, September 27, many museums in our area will be participating in Smithsonian Day Live where they will offer free admission for up to 2 people per household. Zoo Miami is also participating in this offer and most national refuge and parks are offering their "no-fee"days. So, if you've been waiting to see a current exhibit or just getting out for a picnic or walk through the park, this may be the perfect day to do it!
