This is the conclusion of our visit to the Aquarium.
Here are some my pros and cons about visiting the aquarium.
Pros of the aquarium:
- The views of the Harbor and the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge are awesome.
- It’s located right next to the Fort Sumter museum and ferry so you can hit two big tourist attractions at once.
- The Sea Turtle Rescue area is a must see. The Imaginative One loved it.
- The price was a lot for the two / two and half hours were there.
- They only have a reciprocal program with a zoo in South Carolina not the Columbus Zoo.
Would I go again? I don’t know. I’ve been there twice – 2005 and 2017. There is more there now but I don’t know if they will be able to expand or not.
There is so much to see in Charleston so when we go again, I’ll find something different for us to do.
This blog post will cover the bald eagle, mountain forest exhibit, Piedmont region, Coast exhibit with the albino alligator, the view of the Harbor, the lobby, and more of Liberty Square.
I decided to do a slide show of all of our photos instead of the individual collages. You can stop and pause the slide show whenever you want.
The bald eagle was right outside the Mountain Forest exhibit. When we were at the aquarium in 2005, we listened to a keeper talk about the otters. I will always remember telling us how otters are like 2 year old toddlers.
After we were finished with the Mountain Forest exhibit, we visited the Piedmont exhibit. The word piedmont is a French word that means foothills. It’s the foothills of the Appalachian Mountain Range. Then we also visited the Coastal exhibit. Our favorite part of the Coastal exhibit was the albino alligator.
While we were enjoying the harbor views, I decided to try to get photos of Hubby and I and then the boys with their dad. We ended up being photo bombed by either the Wee One or the Imaginative One.
After we were finished with the Aquarium, we went to explore some of Charleston. I’ll share those photos next week.
Have a magical day,
