Every 4th Friday of the month, there is an awesome Live Jazz concert on St. Armands Circle. There are many vendors with things from wine to beer to soda to hot dogs to delicious sandwiches. This is an absolute must do if you are in the area!

This is the most awesome aquarium I've ever been to! You must take a whole day to walk through and see all the magnificent creatures. They have many different exhibits and oodles of animals from sharks to moray eels to a giant squid to dolphins and much much more! My favorite part is the two touch tanks where you can 'pet' and hold sea urchins, sting rays, horseshoe crabs, and a lot more! This is an absolute must do! And don't forget the two gift shops, each with their own different items!
