New wonders of wildlife aquarium and museum turns conservation knob to 11

The new Johnny Morris' Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium doesn't have just one multi-story mega-tank parading exotic fish species. There are at least three, and that's not counting the Bait Ball, a basement-to-second-floor, see-through aquatic sheath in which thousands of little herring swim around in what I can only imagine is abject terror while a handful of sharks circle them and sometimes glide through them.

A Taste of Transylvania in North Carolina

Looking for a couple's getaway to keep you both happy? A surprisingly attractive option lies a reasonably short distance from the Asheville, N.C., airport. Home to world-class mountain bikers drawn to its extensive trail network and mild winters, nationally known fly fishermen and an internationally acclaimed music center, this rural getaway offers travel amenities, a publicly accessible NASA gem and an art district that's home to a Smithsonian exhibitor. Need more? There's also a blooming craft beer scene, and more waterfalls than you can shake a stick at. North Carolina's Transylvania County has much to offer lovers of music, mountain biking and Mother Nature.
