Title: The Florida Aquarium
Post by: TBTourist on February 05, 2010, 05:43:19 PM
The Florida Aquarium is definitely a fun day!  It's relatively inexpensive and of course, if you love fish you'll love this.  They have a wetlands area, a swamp area, a beach area, a coral reef area, a shark tank, a stingray petting tank, and all sorts of exotic fish. 

I especially liked the huge tanks with the coral reefs.  There's a huge two story wall of glass with a sitting area and it's soooo relaxing to sit there and observe the fish.  They even have rocking chairs in that area, so grab one of those. 

If you're interested in diving with the sharks, they will let you do so on certain days and probably by appointment for an extra cost.  But, seeing their diver in the shark tank and hearing them talk to the crowd to answer questions is way cool also.
