New England Aquarium

happyly approved

Great aquarium right on the Wharf in Boston!

When first arriving you will be greeted by the seals swimming in the tank right before the entrance! With a giant center tank in the middle of this aquarium its a fun place to visit. You can touch different sharks and rays, watch the penguins swim and get fed (if you come early enough) from the large open area right as you walk in, see the seals outside swim and play, and of course - one of our favorites - spot Myrtle the turtle in the large center tank! My personal favorite is seeing the octopuses! 

There is an IMax theater attached to the aquarium and you can also purchase whale watching tickets from the aquarium ticket booth .

The Head of Accounting and Boston Ambassador, Jenny has been living in Boston for almost 10 years. Before Boston, she lived in Washington, DC for 8 years, and previous to that grew up on Long Island, NY. Along the way, she spent a few months in Amsterdam with her family biking all around and exploring that beautiful city! Jenny has always enjoyed being active - from organized sports to jogging, and of course, being in the garden as much as possible when the weather is cooperative. She tries to include her children in all of her active hobbies. With two toddler boys, ages 3 and 5, she and her husband spend their time discovering new places and things to do in the New England area. Spending time outdoors in all types of weather and encouraging her children to love all seasons is very important to her - and so is helping and encouraging others to do the same. Jenny and her family love spending time at the beach, traveling, taking walks and hikes, and of course, finding new playgrounds!
