I hadn’t been to the Baltimore Aquarium in over 10 years … actually it had probably been longer then that, since elementary school. When deciding what to see on Jose’s one day in Baltimore, he expressed interest in going to the Aquarium and I’m not going to lie I was not too excited.
Well, this is probably the only time you’ll here me say this, but I was crazy wrong.
It was amazing! It is set in such a great way as to guide you through the whole aquarium in a captivating way.
The jellyfish exhibit was by far my favorite part, which surprised me too, since I swore to hate them forever after being stung by one while wakeboarding in the Chesapeake Bay. But, I was amazed at how beautiful they were and how many different types of jellyfish there are.
We paid the $5 upgrade to see the 4-D movie experience. 4-D means there are smells, things sprayed at you, poking you and much more. It was awesome, I highly recommend it!
After the Aquarium we headed to the most touristy restaurant I could think of, the Hard Rock Cafe at the Inner Harbor.
(I find this picture hilarious, like we are the king and queen of Hard Rock)
Then we wandered around the the Inner Harbor looking at a few of the big ships that were still in the harbor after the 200th anniversary celebration of the writing of the Star-Spangled Banner.
