The Dallas World Aquarium
Get ready for a global adventure to explore ocean, fresh water, and terrestrial creatures at the Dallas World Aquarium in Texas. It originally opened to the public in 1992 and has enjoyed increasing popularity since that time. Through a dedication to educate visitors of all ages and a strong focus on conservation of the natural world and its inhabitants, this aquarium has become a beacon for environmental efforts. It is an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums in the USA and the world. Even if you do not make it to the aquarium itself, you can enjoy the photos and live animal cams on the website.
A visit offers a must-see glimpse into the lives of so many different types of fish, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, and birds from all around the world. The large building has tons of exhibits that help you learn more about nature. The Mundo Maya South American section includes ocelots, hawk eagles, flamingos, the spectacled owl, agouti rodents, turtles, tree frogs, a wide variety of cichlids, seahorses, eels, and more. In the Orinoco display, view freshwater stingrays, playful tamarins and marmosets, adorable two-toed sloths, howler monkeys, a fearsome anaconda, and a wide variety of fish and other birds. The South Africa exhibit includes penguins, chameleons, and exotic birds. The rest of the aquarium is full of seemingly unending tanks of fish of all sizes, shapes, and colors.
Make a day of it at the Dallas World Aquarium. It will take a long time to explore all the different exhibits in this multi-story building and outdoor spaces. There are many opportunities to sit down and rest for a while at one of their cafés and restaurants. Choose from gourmet selections, Tex-Mex dishes, or casual pizza and sandwiches. Of course, any visit to such an amazing location would not be complete without a stop in the gift shop for a souvenir.
