“Love the Aquarium more every time I go there!”
I can't imagine NOT enjoying a visit to the aquarium. There are always new exhibits and I see things I've missed each time I go. There are combo tickets available if you're traveling on a budget. Advance purchase saves waiting in line. No matter how many times I've visited I enjoy being there as if it's my first visit.
