Kids love fish. And there’s probably a good reason why. They watch them on the big screen, eat snacks shaped like them and even visit entire theme parks dedicated to them. So why not make your little fish fanatic happy this fall by heading to one of these local spots to watch (or even touch) our finned friends. Swim, err, flip through the gallery to see our favorite places where fish lovers (big and small) can meet these creatures of the deep.
A garden center might seem like an unlikely attraction for kids, but Swansons Nursery is a perfect spot for some relaxing fish watching. You'll find a beautiful koi pond right by the café —so you can enjoy a coffee and the little ones can enjoy a hot chocolate, while watching the fish swim about.
Good to Know: There are super monthly activities for kids, and Swansons pulls out all the stops for its fall and Christmas festivals.
