The fish hatchery is a wonderful stop especially with small children. I never tire of watching their delight when the fish get the food. Plus it's free! All you need is buy a bag of fish food and let the fun begin.

I don't know what else they offer because I've never stopped for longer that a few... More

You go and see thousands of fish and the kids can feed them, you can also walk along the river that they release them into, relaxing place to visit with younger children
