We are very fortunate to have an aquarium in our city that has bragging rights.

Newport Aquarium was voted the No. 1 aquarium in the country by USA Today’s Newport Aquarium was named a top U.S. aquarium by Travel Channel in 2013 and by US City Traveler in 2014.

During our tour, we got the perspective of what the aquarium tanks look like from above. We learned about the Shark Rays and other marine life that live at the aquarium.

Our tour guides were so great that our kids kept on asking a ton of questions.

We got to see what types of foods that the animals at the aquarium eat. They eat better than most humans!  Top Shelf quality!
