State Parks, Historic Sites, and Museums need your help.

Throughout the country, state parks, historic sites, museums, and similar institutions are struggling to continue operating. Because of general financial problems, many of these institutions are operating on a reduced schedule or in danger of closing. Some are being forced to sell off artifacts and property. Many will not weather these hard times without your help.

Places Earth urges everyone to support these vital and important public resources any way you can. Please donate your treasure, time, and talent. Write to your governor and other elected officials telling them to find a way to keep state parks open. It will be your loss.

Legoland California

Legoland California opened in the early 2000s as a single theme park with Legos as the theme. Today the complex includes the original park, but larger, two water parks, an aquarium, and a hotel.

As you enter Legoland, you find a general loop layout through various areas. Walking counterclockwise from the entrance, you start at "The Beginning" with gift shops and services. Next is the new "Ninjago World," with its new Ningago ride, "Imagination Zone," and "Land of Adventure" with its Lost Kingdom Adventure and Pharaoh's Revenge. Next move to the center for "Miniland USA," which is my favorite section, with Coast Cruise, a number of miniature townscapes made of Lego, and a large Star Wars section. Move back to the loop and "Castle Hill" with a unique ride, The Dragon, which starts as a traditional dark ride and becomes a modest roller coaster. Next is "Pirate Shores" where itís hard to stay dry. "Fun Town" has several small rides for kids but also Adventurers' Club, a walk-through exploration attraction, and Lego Factory Tour, a walk-through stylized Lego factory. The entrances to the two separate admission water parks, "Water Park" and "Chima Water Park," are located here. The next area is "Lego Friends Heartlake City" and finally "Explorer Island" with Coastersaurus and Safai Trek. Safari Trek is one on the original rides which takes you through a landscape of Lego animals. This brings visitors back to "The Beginning" which also has the entrance to "Sea Life," with a separate admission.

As you might expect, Lego and overside Lego-like objects are everywhere and bright primary Lego colors predominate. There are also several Lego stores selling complete sets or specific shapes and colors by the pound. There are several places to eat, this author ate at Knight's Smokehouse BBQ and Garden Restaurant and enjoyed the Apple Fries from Grammy's Apple Fries.

It takes a full day to cover the highlights and would take two or three visits to cover everything. The park suggests starting at the back and working forward to avoid long lines.

Hours vary with the season. Visit the official web site for the latest hours and prices.
