I celebrated my one year anniversary ofliving in San Francisco yesterday. San Francisco is a beautiful place to live. There is so much to do, see and eat. Sigh! This is why I am always in the gym. Ha! More on that to come with our new health and fitness contributor.
I love exploring the the city and visiting places like The Exploratorium. The Exploratorium is a museum in San Francisco which is pretty much an Adult Disneyland. It is a museum filled with exhibits, innovative design and inquisitive concepts. I went to the Exploratorium with my husband for date night. I try to spend one fun filled evening with my husband at least once week. Going to the Exploratorium was a new adventure and we were definitely interested in checking it out.
As I arrived, it was a visual overload. I loved the light show outside( See the picture above). There are over 650 interactive exhibits with new ones being added every week. You honestly cannot get through it all in one night. You need a couple of nights to complete it all. I really enjoyed the The Color Conflicts exhibit ( See picture above) which challenges you to read the names of colours but in fonts in another colour. For example, the word would be green but written in purple font. You would have to say the font color to get a point. AHHH! So difficult but the challenge was fun!
The Language Blocks are so interesting ( See the picture below). With a partner, you each sit at opposite sides of a table with a divider. One person creates a picture using the blocks and then has to describe the picture to the other person for them to create the same image. It sounds easy but its not. It forces you to use descriptive words and really explain the image you want the other person to create.
All of these challenges were so fun and really had my mind working! I really enjoyed the Tactile Dome which is a dome filled with obstacle courses... but inside is pitch black. You have to use your sense of touch to get through them. Honestly I thought I couldn't get through it but with the help of my husband, I did. It was INTENSE. Your sense of touch really kicks in and becomes heightened when you are in the dark. I made it out and it was definitely an experience everyone should have.You need to check it out at the Exploratorium.
