Since 1947, residents of 34th Street in Baltimore's Hampden community have come together to create a Christmas wonderland that's quirky, creative and over the top. Decorations range from traditional – lights, nativity scenes and inflatable snowmen – to one-of-a-kind, like a Christmas tree made of hubcaps and ornaments made of Old Bay spice mix. About 50,000 people turn out to see the unique decorations each year.
Set in Downtown Tampa, the Florida Aquarium features a whopping million-gallon fish tank and more than 20,000 aquatic animals and plants. The little ones will enjoy watching the daily penguin promenade, cooling off at the outdoor water park, and swimming with fish in a coral reef tank. Certified SCUBA divers older than 15 can swim with the sharks.
