The Florida Aquarium
The Florida Aquarium is located right in Tampa Bay right next to the Port of Tampa. The Florida Aquarium is an awesome place to spend some time with the family and includes an amazing amount of exhibits that will teach the young and old plenty about under sea life and the creatures which make their home there. There are plenty of wild fish, sea mammals, and other amazing creatures on display to entertain the minds of the young and old alike. There are four different sections in which the aquarium is divided. The Wetlands are where guests of the aquarium can find otters, turtles, different birds, and alligators. This is where the journey of the water starts on its way to the ocean. Next the water moves through the Bays and the Beaches where guests will find such sea life as sting rays, shrimp, and other forms of sea life. In the Coral Reef, guests find a massive number of tropical and exotic fish, all wearing the most electrifying colors on their bodies. Goliath Groupers, barracuda, and even Black-footed Penguins make their home in these parts. This part of the aquarium is where special interactive programs are held as well including “Swimming with the Fishes” and “Dive with the Sharks”. In Ocean Commotion, some of the most interesting sea life comes into view including HUGE sea turtles, octopus, as well as sharks in the Shark Bay. With all these animals, interesting and informative shows, and interactive programs available, The Florida Aquarium is definitely a great place to be with the family. Find all these animals and creatures in simulated Florida habitats and enjoy the enlightening experience at The Florida Aquarium.
Dinosaur World is a magical place in Tampa where children can be transported back in time to the days of the dinosaurs. Here guests will find an impressive display of dinosaurs from the Stegosaurus to the Tyrannosaurus Rex. The park has three locations including one in Texas and one in Kentucky. The parks were the idea of Christer Svensson, a Swedish businessman who has been in the entertainment business for many decades. He and his family came to Florida because they love it so much and have spent many vacations in the area. The goal of the park is to provide guests including families and school groups with the most entertaining park in the area. The park is full of life sized models of dinosaurs as they are projected to have once stood. They tower the guests that come in for the sake of learning and being entertained by the pure sight of these amazing creatures. It is almost extremely difficult to believe that these creatures, these giant reptiles once lived and owned the planet. These beasts were like us in some ways. Some ate plants, some ate meat, some ate both, but they lacked a certain ability to create, to continue in their form. They were wiped off the face of the planet by a giant meteor which struck the planet millions of years ago. Today we admire these life sized representations of the real creatures in what would be their natural habitat. We can only speculate for the most part but these creatures are absolutely amazing and so lifelike! Children can be a paleontologist for a day in a fossil dig where they can find traces of amber, ammonite, orthoceras, crinoids, gastropods, shells, sharks teeth, and even more little discoveries. Spend the day at Dinosaur World and partake in these blasts from the past.
