  • This place is quite small. The highlight is the petting area. I prefer the SeaLife Aquarium in Grapevine.  more »

  • Great spot for kids and cheap! Not a whole lot to do, but a good side trip. Hit up the butterfly garden and outdoor play area for a few hours of kid energy release!
  • Small but neat aquarium. Wide range of fresh and salt water sea life. Feeding and petting the sting rays was the best! We took our two kids ages 8-12 and they loved it. The staff was friendly and very knoweledgable, especially Gayle!
  • Great, small aquarium perfect for families. We love feeding the stingrays! Everything is at eye level for the children, which helps so that you're not having to lift them to see the exhibits. Parking is free. You can eat snacks outside where the stingrays are located. Not expensive. Great, educational place.
  • Amazing! We saw lots of cool sea animals and it was a amazing experience. They had a show going on when we got there too. Outside the aquarium there was a stand where they wanted people to test there drink "ICE" and we got 3 bottles. They were pretty useful when if came to the time where we were thirsty in the aquarium. We touched Starfish which were very creepy and there was also a souvenir shop that had all different kinds of cool things. I totally recommend anybody who is visiting Dallas that are on vacation or anybody who would like to see amazing sea creatures!
  • For the price, we were disappointed in this attraction. My daughter (age 7) lost interest in less than an hour and was ready to go somewhere else. So we went next door to Texas Discovery Gardens, which was a much better deal in my opinion.

Where to stay in Dallas

Though the downtown area offers more high-end accommodations, the heaviest concentration of hotels in Dallas is in the northern part of the city. Staying in this area while on holiday allows you to choose from a range of affordable and comfortable lodgings just a short drive from the city's major attractions. Depending on the purpose of your visit, you may find it more convenient to stay close to the airport or near the city's amusement parks. A budget-friendly alternative, the northern suburbs offer decent accommodations and plenty of shops and restaurants.
