Exploring the mysteries of the ocean seems like an unlikely endeavor in landlocked Oklahoma, but the relatively new Oklahoma Aquarium, opened in 2003, makes it all possible. Sharks are a big draw here, and you can catch them at their most serene as they swim overhead as you walk through the glass-tunneled shark tank, or at their most ominous as they rip into their meals during public feedings (Mondays and Thursdays at 1:30PM). Kids can touch stingrays and sharks (small ones, not the ones you just saw go all Jaws-like during the feeding show). And there are plenty of other interesting creatures to gawk at, like octopus and jellyfish (which are so much prettier when they're not washed up on a beach). It's not a huge aquarium, but it's still an enjoyable way to pass an hour or two.
