If you like marine animals and maybe want to become a marine biologist in the future, the Newport Aquarium in Cincinnati is the place to go. It has hundreds of sea animals and species and fish that are different colors and sizes. They have a “hands-on” attraction area where you can pet stingrays, sea stars, and much
more docile animals. The aquarium did a great job on the structure of the tanks and allows you to even crawl underneath the tanks and pop up in the middle of them. It’s a great place to take your kids and even adults to have fun. On Sundays, they have interactive shows, where they have scuba divers feed the animals and have marine biologists give interesting facts about the animals. The Newport Aquarium has a long walk-through tunnel, where giant sharks swim all around you. The Aquarium is one of the best places to visit in Cincinnati, Ohio.
