"The International Antarctic..." International Antarctic Centre Tip by Libs

The International Antarctic Center!!
I can't wait to get to Antarctica, which gave me another reason to love Christchurch, because it is the Antarctic gateway city. The center was awesome. I learned a lot. It may be kinda geared toward kids but...well...I like things geared towards kids. I had loads of fun!! The snow and ice experience was cool, too. Well, I had only recently left behind the snow and ice real thing in IL, but it was fun to watch the reactions of people who had never seen snow before.

Address: by the Christchurch Airport
Directions: Just follow the boot prints from the Christchurch Airport. You'll be glad you did. OK, now I sound like and advertisement. OK, maybe I should stop editorializing.
