Living near Baltimore there are many places I try to visit at least every couple of years. As I have friends and family come visit who don’t live in the area, I make it to some of these sites more often then when they aren’t here visiting. It is very easy to take for granted the sites in DC, Baltimore, and Annapolis, let alone all the other areas near by. My last visit to the Baltimore Aquarium was this past April, and it made me want to make it there to visit more often.
When I went there was still an official Dolphin show taking place several times a day, and I hear now that is not the case, but visitors can still go watch the trainers interact with the dolphins and can pay extra to spend a day assisting the trainers/or become trainers for the day.
There are many fish and exhibits to be seen that can teach young and old alike about our oceans and water ways. There are even special exhibits that occur sometimes. When I went there was a special Jelly Fish Exhibit to capture the visitors imaginations. The fish are beautiful and there is lots to learn along the way. The aquarium has activities for children and lots of information that is fun for the adult visitors, too. I’d recommend a trip to the National Aquarium in Baltimore to anyone who is contemplating it!
