Ten-year old Mady lives in the Greater Toronto Area with her parents, two dogs and two cats. She loves to travel and is committed to helping nature and all its creatures. Her family went on a trip to South Carolina, and you can read below about the fun she had in The New Kid-Friendly Hot Spot. Follow Mady's adventures on her blog and on Twitter.
Next, we went to the EdVenture Children's Museum, which was conveniently located next door to the South Carolina State Museum. The first thing we noticed as we entered was the gigantic 40-foot sculpture of a 10-year-old boy. Eddie, weighing in at 17.5 tons, is a hands-on exhibit of the human body. Visitors can climb through his intestines, bounce around in his stomach and crawl through his heart. My favorite part of this interactive museum was experimenting with the glow-in-the-dark Laser Pegs in the Maker Works section.
Later on, we went out for dinner to Pasta Fresca Italian Restaurant. It was a fairly big restaurant that had recently changed location. On the menu, were many choices of many different types of pasta, like spaghetti, ravioli, lasagna and many more. There was also a kid's menu, so you could call this a family-friendly restaurant. The food was very good and the service was great. I will definitely be going there again if I'm ever in the area in the future.
I wasn't sure what to expect in Columbia, but every single part of my trip was amazing! I loved all the restaurants and museums. I will be back!
