Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, Connecticut packs in quite a punch. It has a one-acre outdoor habitat which consists of three interconnected pools holding more than 750,000 gallons of water, making it one of the largest outdoor beluga whale exhibits in the United States.
I visited the aquarium during a time of the year when the temperature was way down and the mountain peaks of New England were dusted with powdery snow. Not exactly hike-friendly if you are not into snowshoeing or ice-climbing. And that’s one of the reason why we decided to go say hello to our fellow creatures from the sea-world. But after spending a day there I realized how educational and fun the place is and why it makes sense to go there in any season.
My second favorite exhibit in the Aquarium happened to be the African Penguins which have now become an endangered species. More on them in my next post.
