AOL Travel Editor’s Review

These monolithic structures propped up on the bank of the river's south side have become one of the most-visited attractions in the city—the region, for that matter. The Aquarium is split into two buildings. The River Journey building starts high in the Appalachian Mountains and follows a drop of water as it makes its way to the sea. The Aquarium's playful river otters are particularly popular in this building. The Ocean Journey building begins with a tropical garden filled with butterflies. Working your way down through the Aquarium, you'll pass spunky penguins and gaze into the tooth-packed mouth of sharks. Unique seahorse and jellyfish exhibits will mesmerize and amaze. Don't forget to bring the family's swimsuits, as water features abound near the Aquarium.

  Very beautiful, good staff, nice views and not as crowed as I thought...We had a wonderful time and plan on going back in July!
