Here's a little activity to take advantage of before it gets too hot. It's a nice little trip to take the kids on that seems like a world away, plus it's free.
There's an oasis at the Flamingo hotel that is filled with wildlife just roaming around. It gives kids a chance to see some exotic birds up close and personal. The habitat is lush with foliage from around the world. You can stroll on winding walkways alongside streams and waterfalls, or on bridges over lagoons and ponds. Benches scattered throughout give you a chance to sit back and enjoy the view.
