Not much to say here except that it was awesome, you should go, and enjoy the photos. Ok, maybe a little more to say. I haven’t been to any of the bigger aquariums elsewhere so I might not know what I’m missing, but I thought the Audubon Aquarium was very impressive. They had a good variety of aquatic wildlife (Penguins! Piranhas!) in tanks big and small with some fun kids’ play areas mixed in. Quick tip: find out what the feeding times are at the huge tank that’s at the tail end of the aquarium (last photo) so you can either find a good spot to watch or try to avoid it altogether, because once feeding time starts it’s practically impossible to get past the crowd.
