Aquarium
“The aquarium is a fantastic place for anyone! You can get cheaper tickets if you visit after 4pm. The aquarium is located in expo park which has free admission and there are many free things to see like the dolphin shows, sea turtle area, manatee pool and a few fish tanks. There is an interesting big room at the end of the aquarium to spend time in which is also free admission. The Expo Park is big and has 2 lovely parks for children to play at. The netted park is particularly fun but be warned that it is closed on rainy days. The other park on the South side takes longer to walk to but is situated next to a little beach which you can’t swim at but can dip your feet into water, look for shells and see a beautiful view of The aqua blue ocean and Ie Island. ”
