Great place to spend a hot summer dayFlag review
My son and I checked out this World Aquarium when we were on a business trip with my husband. It was really fun to see his reactions to everything since there were only the two of us. This was a really cool place, combination of a zoo/aquarium. When you get there you go up to the top floor and work your way down. There are monkeys, turtles, alligators, tropical birds, penguins, and many types of fish. It is very unique how they have everything displayed here. In the downstairs, they have an aquarium tunnel that you walk through it was very cool having the sharks look like they are swimming around you.
Tips for Families
This was a great place to spend 3-4 hours. It is not a huge place, but if you have an afternoon to spare, the kids will really enjoy it.
