LEGO Americana Roadshow
For your future engineers and architects, the LEGO Americana Roadshow will be opening at Kenwood Towne Center on the Fourth of July. The installation displays larger-than-life models of American landmarks created entirely with LEGO bricks, including the White House. kenwoodtownecentre.com/events/lego-americana-roadshow

Newport Aquarium Shark Bridge
If your kids are looking for an adventure, check out the new Shark Bridge, where you can walk across a 75-foot-long tank containing almost two dozen sharks. But if strolling on a rope bridge over sharks isn’t your  jam, the aquarium has also expanded the floor space surrounding the tank, so you can hang out there. newportaquarium.com

National Underground Railroad Freedom Center’s Diversity in Baseball Exhibit
For something closer to a learning experience, check out the Freedom Center’s Diversity in Baseball exhibit. The installation examines the racial and social changes of American life focusing on our favorite pastime: baseball. Just in time for the All-Star Game! freedomcenter.org/DiversityInBaseball
