Seattle, Washington Aquarium

Since 1977, the Seattle Aquarium has been dedicated to the conservation of the planet's marine and freshwater ecosystems and to the education of the public. This world-class aquarium is fun and interactive, featuring diverse exhibits and attractions for visitors of all ages. You can make your way through the entire facility in about 2 hours, but really it's best to slow down and spend some time going through the different sections with care and attention. At the end of the day, visit the Gift Shop, where you can take home books on your favorite sea creature or maybe even a plushy or T-shirt.
