When we were in Tennessee we had some time to kill before we had to be at the airport, so we went to the Chattanooga Aquarium… and let me tell you, it was awesome!! If you have children
or if you are one yourself, this place has limitless entertainment. I went a little crazy with the pics, but I tried my hardest to scale them back for this blog post.
There were actually 2 different buildings, the first one was the River Aquarium, and the second was the Ocean Aquarium.
They had a huge display of seahorses:
… and turtles…
… and PENGUINS…
I LOVE penguins. There were so many nesting and loving on each other, and even one guy stealing pebbles from another nest to build the perfect throne for his love.
if that doesn’t melt your heart, you’re not human.
And if that’s not enough to convince you, there was even a Butterfly Garden. It was an entirely separate room full of butterflies.
There were also divers that were feeding the fish in the shark tank…
Yikes. I think I’ll keep my day job.
So if you’re ever in Chattanooga and looking for something to do downtown, I would highly recommend the aquarium. I could have spent hours there!
