We visited the Newport Aquarium this summer to check out the new seahorses exhibit and I can honestly say that the aquarium has outdone themselves! We really enjoyed this exhibit because it is spaced out really well. There is plenty of room to walk around and it is fun too! We loved taking selfies with the seahorses. It is home to a variety of seahorses, sea dragons and pipe fish. We learned so much too. It was a great learning experience for the summer.
We like how hands on the Newport Aquarium is. They have several touch stations throughout the aquarium including the Turtle Touch in the Turtle Canyon Exhibit. Of course our favorite is still touching the sharks. They start the day with a Penguin Parade, you can watch the animals being fed, they have live shows and so much more. We love to schedule our visits around the feedings (be sure to check online) and shows that we want to see that day. You can also get your hand stamped and visit the Newport on the Levee and then come back in later in the same day for another show to really make a day of it. You could even pack a picnic and enjoy that and come back in to keep it frugal!
