The day after the craft beer festival, Dan and I went to the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga. Dan loves aquariums and museums, so it was the perfect way to spend a couple of hours on a rainy Sunday.
The museum is split into river and ocean, in two separate buildings. I really like that idea! We were impressed by the variety of animals and fish in the exhibits. Dan loved the reptiles and tons of turtles, especially the tortoise.
I was mesmerized by the sea horses and jellyfish.
We both agreed that with the easy navigation and smaller crowds, we preferred it to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. It was smaller, but the up-close-and-personal habitats meant you could see way more.
It was also a very kid-friendly place. I highly recommend you check it out while in Chattanooga!
