If you are looking for an interesting yet beautiful place to stop then check this out. You will enjoy the break from the many tourists as this place was not crowded at all. We had a very enjoyable time here.

Children would especially like to see these huge sturgeon. It is free with free parking also. You can see the fish by standing beside their pool or walking down steps and looking through glass.
