Shedd Aquarium provided me with passes in return for this post. However, as always all opinions expressed are my own. Pinky Promise!
On our first day of our trip we visited the Shedd Aquarium, we spent about three hours walking around and admiring the animals. About half way through our trip we realized that we were going against the “flow” of people because when we got inside we went left instead of right like everyone else, so be sure take a right and walk with the flow of people, otherwise you will be running into people nonstop like we were.
Seahorses. Seriously these were so cool looking, I could have watched these all day long.
Turtles. We found quite a few turtles that were super cute and the best part is that they aren’t like most turtles on exhibits, these actually get up and play around!
Jellyfish. These were so pretty. I had no idea that there were so many different kinds of Jellyfish! Be extra sure to check out this exhibit.
The line outside was pretty long when we arrived, but please do not let this scare you off because the line moved fairly quickly and is totally worth waiting in. The Shedd Aquarium is not over crowded (despite the line out front) and is large enough that you can see each exhibit without tripping on other people.
I would recommend the Shedd Aquarium to anyone visiting Chicago, take your kids or go alone (like we did) I promise you will love this place!
