Newport Aquarium offers families plenty to see and do during every visit. The world-class facility showcases thousands of animals from around the world in a million gallons of water, including Sweet Pea and Scooter, the Newport Aquarium's ultra rare shark rays. Each day begins with a special penguin parade, featuring one of the Aquarium's African Blackfoot penguins. There are dive shows, feedings and 'meet the biologist' sessions scheduled throughout the day. Visitors can also pet sharks, hand-feed Lorikeets and make crafts to take home. The state-of-the-art facility is open 365 days/year and only two minutes from downtown Cincinnati at Newport on the Levee. Visit www.newportaquarium.com for more information.
