Weekends in Lexington are never dull and without proper entertainment. The city is home to a multitude of outdoor activities, musical events, and delicious restaurants. For families though, Lexington has a special group of places to visit and things to try. One in particular is the Hummel Planetarium.
The perfect place to visit during the winter, the planetarium offers an imaginative array of stars, planets, and constellations to gaze upon. Children’s curiosities will be activated, and as parents, you’ll be faced with a bag full of questions on the universe. Doubling as an educational and fun experience, there’s no doubt you’ll find admiration in space. The real benefit though, is the continuing drive to be amazed. When you leave the planetarium, your children will be begging to gaze at the stars once they get home. And with the beautiful air Lexington has, it won’t be long before you and your kids spot the Big Dipper or spot Mars twinkling in the night sky.
Overall, it’s a fun experience, and it’s one that will continue to foster each family’s curiosity.
