New England Aquarium!

This past week, my mom and I took a daytrip to the New England Aquarium in Boston! I absolutely love the aquarium - with its beautiful fish, colorful gift shop, and delicious cafe. The aquarium itself is a gorgeous structure, extremely modern looking.
In the past few years, the New England Aquarium has been getting some great renovations, so there is always something new during your visit. Just a year or two ago, they put in a unique shark and stingray touch tank, which is truly amazing! Pictures of the touch tank will follow!
The shark and ray touch tank is a one of a kind attraction. The afternoon we were at the aquarium, almost no one was there! There were a few other people in the touch tank area, but not the usual hordes of people. Since there were next to no people, I think the rays and sharks were less intimidated and nervous, and they would come right up to your hand!
After our visit to the aquarium, we got a dessert at Emack and Bolio's right down the street. After eating a scrumptious ice cream, I snapped a few photos!
Thanks for reading! - Rachel
