On a whim, the wife and I decided to check out the Newport Aquarium yesterday. We were already at the Levee (enjoying Dim Sum at Pacific Moon) and really didn’t have anything else going on, so we headed over. I was a little shocked at the ticket price ($18.95) but after spending an hour there, we decided that it was worth it. They have some really cool exhibits like a “live flight” bird sanctuary and the requisite shark tank. Definitely check it out if you’ve got a free afternoon.
