Always a good place to bring our kids. They are in their 20's now and bring their friends from out of town. Fun to feed the fish in the ponds. Indoor aquariums are educational.

This is a real fish hatchery staffed by professionals that really care about conservation. Go there to learn and you will be pleased. If you just want entertainment, go to Seaworld.
