$5 Child Admission to SeaWorld Florida, California, & Texas! May 3, 2010

I don’t know about you, but whenever I see sea creatures, I am in just complete awe. If only I had that kind of grace in the water — or on the land for that matter!

SeaWorld is running an AWESOME promo deal right now through their SeaWorld Cares program. You can purchase a child’s ticket for SeaWorld Florida, California, or Texas for just $5 with the purchase of a full-price adult ticket — and those tickets are good through the end of 2010! Even better, 100% of the $5 admission for your kiddo (ages 3-12) will be donated to a wildlife conservation effort of your choice (from their list).  Just make the purchase online and then print your ticket(s) at home, and avoid the entry lines at the park!

Here are the links for this deal!

Expires: The tickets expire December 31, 2010

Thanks, Cheryl P.!

PERFECT holiday gift: “adopt” a zoo animal December 5, 2009

What do you get the person who really doesn’t need anything else? Here’s the PERFECT gift! “Adopt” an animal from your local zoo on their behalf.

I gave the gift of a pair of lovebirds to my grandparents last year (who had been married for 68 years!) and they thought it was simply fabulous. Check with your local zoo on their “adoption” program, or check out the one at The Dallas Zoo.

According to The Dallas Zoo’s site, “Parent Benefits” include:

  • “A personalized Adoption Certificate with a color photo of your animal.
  • A Zookeeper’s Report, filled with information about your animal.
  • Periodic mailings about the Zoo and the Aquarium.
  • A special invitation to the annual Adopt Parents’ Party.
  • A listing on the Adopt Parents’ Honor Roll at the Dallas Zoo.”

All of this for just $25 to $2,000 per year — something for every budget! And, your gift is tax-deductible. That’s a win, win, win!

Here are the “adoption” sites for some zoos across the country:
