The National Aquarium in Baltimore is a delightful experience for all ages. If you’re planning a sightseeing tour around Washington, D.C., make a short detour over to Maryland to see this national treasure for yourself. Kids love the Living Seashore exhibit, which gives them a chance to touch harmless sea creatures. The Blacktip Reef is another must-see exhibit. Here, blacktip reef sharks, whiptail rays, wobbegong sharks, and zebra sharks swim alongside a massive, 500-pound green sea turtle.
Can’t get enough sharks? After visiting Blacktip Reef, head over to Shark Alley. It’s a ring-shaped exhibit that gives visitors the experience of having sharks slowly circle them. Dolphin Discovery and Australia: Wild Extremes are other popular exhibits you should see on your day trip. If you have a future herpetologist in your family, stop by the Amazon River Forest before you leave, and see the emerald tree boas.
