AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Recent renovations have shaken some of the dust off this once groundbreaking venue that opened in 1969. The New England Aquarium functions as a major player in bettering New England’s environment, by studying fisheries and rescuing stranded sea creatures around the region. The giant 200,000-gallon ocean tank, surrounded by a spiraling ramp, allows you to watch staffers feeding everything from sharks to Myrtle the Turtle around a 20-foot-high artificial coral reef. Outdoor areas host environments for playful harbor seals and sea lions. If you are a fan of cute marine mammals, or fascinated by the eating habits of sharks, the New England Aquarium is one of the top things to do while visiting Boston.
