New England Aquarium

Looking to make some fine-finned friends? Head to the New England Aquarium, home to sea dragons, piranhas, sea lions and a giant Pacific octopus.

Don’t miss the Trust Family Foundation Shark and Ray Touch Tank, where visitors can reach in to gently touch a ray as it moves past. If touching an epaulette shark isn’t up your alley, head to the Edge of the Sea’s touch tank where, once again, guests can gently touch a sea star or a sea urchin.

For sure, the main attraction at the aquarium is the four-story tall Giant Ocean tank, which is captivating. There are hundreds of fish and other ocean-going creatures in the tank, but the star of the show is Myrtle the green sea turtle.
