South Carolina Aquarium

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by chadk78 on February 20, 2005

This aquarium is one of the newest attractions in Charleston. Located right on the harbor, it features several different areas which represent different regions of the state and the wildlife that lives in those regions. One thing I thought was really neat is that it doesn't just have fish; it has all types of animals who live in and around water. There is a recreation of an upcountry stream, a piedmont bog, a sandhills lake, a low-country marsh, and the ocean. The large aquarium, which represents the ocean, includes a large variety of colorful and unique fish. This is one of my favorite types of attractions--it is both fun and educational.
