Mu­se­ums, his­tor­i­cal sites, bazaars, re­sorts, and beaches—they are all a short drive away

Museo de La Salle. Inside the De La Salle Uni­ver­sity-Das­mar­iñas cam­pus is a life­style mu­seum, which pre­serves an­tique fam­ily heir­looms such as fur­ni­ture and dec­o­ra­tive ob­jects in recre­ated 19th cen­tury rooms. De La Salle Uni­ver­sity Cam­pus, Das­mar­iñas

Kadiwa Park. It may not be as huge as the one in the movie, but this ver­sion of Juras­sic Park does not scrimp on the size of sculp­ture and an­i­ma­tron­ics. Con­gres­sional Road, Das­mar­iñas

Kidz World. This mem­ber­ship-only “edu­tain­ment” and ad­ven­ture club re­sort has more than 88 cre­ative and in­ter­ac­tive games that pro­mote fam­ily bond­ing and a deep love for learn­ing. Emilio Aguinaldo High­way cor. Gov­er­nor’s Drive, San Agustin 1, Das­mar­iñas

The pic­turesque sight of the moun­tains serves as a bonus to this 18-hole cham­pi­onship golf course. Km 27 Aguinaldo High­way, Das­mar­iñas Im­mac­u­late Con­cep­tion Parish Church. This church, which dates back to the Span­ish colo­nial pe­riod, has a por­tico in front and two bell tow­ers on each side. P. Campos Ave., Das­mar­iñas Qubo Qa­bana.

Aguinaldo Shrine. The site of the Philip­pine dec­la­ra­tion of in­de­pen­dence, this well-con­served home of the coun­try’s first pres­i­dent,

Cuenca An­ces­tral House. Also called Ba­hay na Tisa be­cause of its roof­ing made from baked clay, this an­ces­tral home is also known as Gen.
