As the largest aquarium in the Southwest, kids of all ages (Mom and Dad, too) can explore more than 50 exhibits and see 30,000-plus animals and 500 species. Take a ride through the first-of-its-kindOdySea Voyager (the rescued sea turtles are a hoot!), be one with nature in3D theater and check out everything from scalloped hammerheads to baby Siamese crocs under one roof.
TIP: While most parents dread the gift shop, the OdySeaAquarium shop is a must-stop. You won’t see the too-cute sea-themed (mermaids included) clothes anywhere else.
