Visit an Aquarium

Let your family dive into the underwater world at an aquarium. These are certainly one of our family's favorite fall and winter destinations, and FTN readers have written in to tell us about their special finds as well. Aquatic exhibits often include sharks, dolphins, whales, sea lions, turtles and other marine life.

Autumn is the perfect time to explore aquariums. There's so much to see and do, and the enclosed spaces let families escape to a beach-like setting on cool or rainy days. Kids love to watch the animal feedings and special events, so make sure to check ahead for times to help plan out your day. 

To find more information and the locations of aquariums in cities you're planning to visit, the American Zoo and Aquarium website is an excellent source: American Zoo and Aquarium Association. GoCityKids is also a good resource.
