Looking for some summer fun? Tampa has so much to offer you and your family. Because Tampa is just a 45 minute drive from WaterGrass, take a day-trip! Your family will have a great time at The Florida Aquarium.

The Florida Aquarium offers an array of different exhibits for your family to check out. In the Wetlands you’ll see animals such as otters, nurse sharks, spoonbills, and crocodiles.  Bays and Beaches offers southern stingrays, snooks, sea horses and more. See bright, beautiful colors when you stop by the Coral Reef. This area simulates a 60-foot dive in the ocean. The tank contains more than 1,600 coral reef residents and represents 60 native species to Florida. Ocean Commotion is the newest addition to The Florida Aquarium. Here you will experience interactive sound and light content as you make your way through the gallery. You can also take part in the daily dive show, located at Shark Bay.

Don’t forget to pack a swimsuit so you can play in Explore A Shore, the fun water zone at the Aquarium. All the fun at the water zone can be viewed from the Caribbean Cantina Bar & Grill.

According to a Trip Advisor user, the Aquarium is a “great place to go for all ages. Attractions were very unique and interactive. Loved it!”
