    Travel: Cairns Aquarium

    The Cairns Aquarium is a great place to visit if you’re in Northern Queensland – and it’s well worth visiting after you snorkel the Great Barrier Reef to see some of the sights you saw up close. One thing I love about the Cairns Aquarium is its educational program – it works to build awareness and preserve the ecosystems in the area. Let’s check out some photos. Cairns Aquarium You’ll find the aquarium a few blocks from the reef terminal and just east of downtown.…

  • Scott Aquarium - a great adventure in Omaha!

    Travel: Scott Aquarium

    Scott Aquarium – one of the features at the Omaha Zoo. This place is full of underwater creatures, some beautiful colours, and breathtaking plants. Let’s check out some of the photos from the aquarium. First, the aquarium is a nice break from the heat. We visited in late July, early August when the temperature was in the high 30s with around 80-85% humidity – talk about hot! Scott Aquarium The underwater colours are amazing – I’m often caught off guard by how colourful plants are…

    Travel: Sea Life Aquarium

    Sea Life Aquarium is one of London’s best sights. Seriously. We love our aquariums – we’ve been to the Vancouver Aquarium, the one in Seattle, and the Shedd Aquarium, too.

The entrance is small and down on the river walk area by the London Eye. If you’re like me and have things planned out, then buy your tickets…

    Travel: Shedd Aquarium Chicago

    The Shedd Aquarium is awesome. A sure ‘to-do’ if you’re visiting the Chicago area. From live shows with rescued animals, all the way to 3D educational movies, this place will keep you busy! Shedd Aquarium Chicago The aquarium is located on Museum Campus (along with the Field Museum and the Adler Planetarium) and just north of Soldier Field. We got the City Pass for Chicago and took total advantage of all the savings (we saved over $300 total for the two of us getting these…

    Travel: Seattle Aquarium

    The Seattle Aquarium is one of the best aquariums I’ve ever been to. The red octopus is simply incredible. Seriously. Check out our photos below. Seattle Aquarium It’s located down on the pier – be sure you get enough parking – we spent 2 hours here easily. This fish tank is huge! The awesome thing, they take in ‘stray’ animals. In this tank I found two fish with only one eye. No way those fish would survive in the wild, so they’re here at the…
