During Spring Break 2019, we traveled down to Chattanooga. While there, we enjoyed the scenic views of Lookout Mountain. We also visited Ruby Falls, the Tennessee Aquarium, and the Chattanooga Zoo. We also looked for ghosts and ghouls on a ghost tour. Enjoy our spring break/ 20th wedding anniversary trip.
Once we got down to Chattanooga, we visited the Tennessee Aquarium. Instead of being in one building, it’s in 3 different buildings. Actually there is a 4th building where you buy the tickets.
The courtyard around the different buildings is absolutely beautiful. Spring had sprung so there was plenty of beautiful foliage. I was so excited because there aren’t many flowers blooming where I live.
After we bought our tickets, we decided to start at the Rivers building. When you get into the building, you ride an escalator to the top floor. You get to see an absolutely breathtaking view of the Tennessee River and Lookout Mountain.
The first exhibit we saw was the otters. They were active which was cool.
Here are some more of the Rivers area of the aquarium.
There are 2 areas where you can pet a creature. One is the sturgeon in the Rivers area and the other is the sting ray in the Oceans area. Both Hubby and I decided to pet the sturgeon.
The Delta area of the River Journey part of the aquarium
They had an exhibit with giant fish. The catfish in that exhibit were HUGE. Hubby was in love with those fish.
They had a cool exhibit about turtles and the natural architecture of their shells. I really enjoyed that exhibit.
Here are the remainder of photos from the Rivers Journey:
Oh, and there is an eel in the aquarium that has its own twitter account.
Join me next time for the remainder of our visit to the Tennessee Aquarium.
