On the Kentucky side of the Ohio River, this aquarium is just a two-minute drive from downtown Cincinnati. The fish are visible through clear, seamless tunnels, so you can get up close and personal—sharks swim around you, separated by only 2½ inches of acrylic. Highlights include the 5,000-gallon touch tank at Shark Central; Kroger Kingdom of Penguins, featuring king and gentoo penguins; Gator Bayou; Jellyfish Gallery; and the Bizarre and Beautiful, where you'll see poison frogs and puffer fish.

i love this Aquarium. i love how you can walk through tunnels that make you feel like you are in the ocean. my little 9 year old went with her girl scout troop to spend the night there, and she said the sharks and fish swimming everywhere were the coolest things ever. But she said that about sea world too. she loves water. helpful hint: bring a stroller for your kids, and snacks.
