The Children's Museum
This is a nice destination for younger kids (2-8) with lots of activities ranging from live animals to science experiments. It is easily reachable with a crew car from Atlantic (call ahead, we did and ended up with a nice minivan). The FBO waves the facility fee if you buy >10 gallons of fuel or grab a meal at the restaurant.
The sportsbar/restaurant at Atlantic FBO is very nice also: Good food and friendly service.
