The North Carolina Aquarium is a great activity for the whole family. The inside of the Aquarium is beautiful with many different types of fish and wildlife from the outer banks. There is even a touch tank to see horseshoe crabs up close. The Aquarium also has some more in depth exhibits for the adults. Outside of the aquarium there is a path to walk along the sound. On that path is a "dump" of sand that has been dredged up. There you can dig for sharks teeth, whale bones and other fossils. You will ALWAYS find something in it. So bring a spoon and a plastic bag because you don't want to miss this activity. The aquarium is a great place to go on a rainy day or on a too hot day.
