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.
