The California – Nevada Roundup: April 2015

San Diego – My grandson is visiting San Diego in April and we have lots of plans. The Reuben H. Fleet Science Center’s admission prices include three new live shows: Too Loud, Too Messy and Too Shocking. They are part of the Don’t Try This at Home series. Both of us will love exploring messy, noisy science and shocking experiments with toilet paper rolls, leaf blowers, ping pong ball explosions, etc. Of course, IMAX is also on the to do list while there. Logon to for their daily calendar. The 11th. annual La Jolla Concours D’Elegance, April 10 – 12, is at the scenic Ellen Browning Scripps Park at the La Jolla Cove. It’s a world class collection of classic automobiles and motorcycles. Octane, a British automotive magazine, named it one of the top three car shows of the year. For admission prices and a schedule of events, go to Crazy science experiments and shiny old cars; what’s not for a kid to like?
