Solid family fun with plenty to do and see for younger children, the Aquarium offers a wide variety of fresh and saltwater fish and reptiles, and well as, surprisingly, a few mammals and rescued birds.
The touch tank is great for younger kids, watching the sea life in the big tank is great, and walking outside to enjoy the beautiful harbor is fantastic.

My wife and I went here yesterday for 4 miles of exercise, and were overwhelmed with the beauty and serenity of this haven for ducks, children, bikes, runners, and an occasional tourist.
Enjoy strolling and taking in the beautiful lovely landscapes and georgous trees that scream for photos of the kids lined up on the low lying branches kissing the ground.
