Not the biggest aquarium I've been to, but the Seattle Aquarium has some great features. The tidal touch pools are amazing--you can touch starfish, sea urchins and sea cucumbers. The otters were very entertaining, and I thought it was a great way to spend the morning.

We enjoyed the layout where you walk from one creatively-designed habitat area to another. Bring kids though as it's mostly themed toward them, unlike the Denver Aquarium where I'd be proud to bring any out of town guests.

What made this aquarium different was that the water in some of the tanks came right from Puget Sound. The corals were beautiful. There were even beautiful clams. The docent showed us how the clams will close up when you shine light on them. Very enjoyable visit.

The seattle Aquarium is located on the waterfront in downtown Seattle. The neighborhood is OK, but not great. They have interesting exhibits, but are not in the same league as major aquariums like Monterrey. Good place to bring kids for an afternoon out.
