A Trip to the Denver Downtown Aquarium

On the way home from our anniversary trip a few weeks ago we stopped at the Denver Downtown Aquarium.  We hadn’t been there before, always opting for zoos or museums, but it seemed like a great way to spend the chilly day.

The Aquarium was filled with the most exotic, beautiful creatures and proved to be enchanting indeed.

There were adorable otters playing, and a fuzzy tiger who looked on nonchalantly at hoards of screaming daycare children.  There were stingrays to entertain and delight.  We swam with the stingrays on our honeymoon so it was a sweet reminder on our anniversary.

Eels and warty fish and the oddest sea creatures I have ever seen along with fabulous large turtles and a kissy octopus.

If you haven’t been to the Denver Downtown Aquarium yet, I highly recommend you go let yourself enter another world.
