Something's fishy

The Audubon Aquarium in New Orleans, Louisiana is right on the Riverwalk near the French Quarter. Great jellyfish displays and shark exhibits! An IMAX theater just adds to the experience.

The layout is designed for exploring and surprises come around every corner. Like the Mississippi exhibit. It is easy to miss tucked back behind the gift shop but a must do. You are greeted by a large white alligator and the whole area is designed to resemble the bayou. Native fish of all sizes and shapes can be seen and it is interesting to find out what is under the river (or under your feet!) Very prehistoric. Don't forget to look up.

One of my favorite areas is the Rain forest. Tree houses, waterfalls, parrots and lush greenery fill your senses here. Something is definitely fishy here.
