As I mentioned in my New Year’s Resolutions for 2012 post, each month I plan on hitting up a different tourist attraction in Boston. This month I opted for the New England Aquarium, which is something I have wanted to go to for a long time.
It was a great place to choose for my first tourist attraction. While it was a little bit annoying to have to wait in a fairly long line (outside) to get tickets and it was pretty packed, I can definitely see why so many people go there.
Some of the things I loved about it were:
- Shark & Ray Touch Tank
- Jellyfish Exhibit
- Penguin Habitat (Three different tanks!)
- The 200,000 gallon Giant Ocean Tank
It is a little bit pricy ($23.95 for adults) but they have a student discount that they don’t advertise. It only saves you $2, but its still nice to get the discount. If you are a library card holder in Boston, you can get discounted tickets (my friend Dan tried to do that the night before, but there weren’t anymore available).
Either way, it is a really great place to take a little kid, go on a date, or check out with friends. I highly recommend checking it out!

Thanks to Dan Blahnik for going with me!
