I love taking day trips on the weekends with Jackson. It’s always fun to discover something new and watch his eyes grow with wonder when we visit places like the Downtown Aquarium.

If you have not visited the Houston Downtown Aquarium yet I suggest giving it a try. The exhibits are nice and so is the A/C. It’s especially good if you go on a weekday afternoon…it’s not nearly as crowded then and you can spend a nice amount of time at each exhibit.
|My favorite tank exhibit: Anemones and Starfish.|
If you prefer to make a day of it and do go on the weekend, I recommend getting the All-Day Adventure Pass for $15.99 per person. It’s really great because you can visit the exhibits as many times as you want and have unlimited access to all the rides.
|Though you can’t see from the photo, Jackson loved the carousel!|
The rides include a Ferris Wheel, The Shark Voyage train ride that goes through a shark tank (so cool), a carousel, and the Light House Dive ride. The Ferris Wheel is especially awesome to ride at night.
And of course, a great way to finish off your visit to the aquarium is to cool off at the splash pad.
|Ahhhh! This feels cool!|
