Myrtle Beach, SC
Located at the entertainment complex Broadway on the Beach, this compact aquarium offers some great exhibits. The centerpiece is the 340-foot glideway that travels through an acrylic tunnel while sharks, stingrays and fish surround you. Multiple touch tanks are located throughout providing opportunities for learning and touching sea life. Lots of add-on experiences such as the Glass Bottom Boat, and backstage tours.
Tennessee Aquarium, located along the banks of the Tennessee River, is truly a gem. Housed in two buildings; each has it own focus. River Journey follows a single drop of rain as it falls into a creek high in the Appalachian Mountains all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. There are stunning tanks filled with colorful trout, immense catfish and ancient-looking sturgeon. The river otters at play will capture your heart. The Ocean Journey building houses salt-water life including colorful coral reef inhabitants, sharks, rays, sea-turtles and more. Penguins can be viewed here and don't forget to enjoy the rain forest where butterflies fly free.
