Feeding Time at the Cleveland Aquarium

What is it about sharks and stingrays that casts a spell over even the most jaded teen? I practically had to drag my 16 and 13-year-olds into the Greater Cleveland Aquarium, while later it was almost impossible to tear them away from the ocean predators.

Despite housing the world’s longest sea tube, the Greater Cleveland Aquarium is not that big. It’s just big enough to be an entertaining place to visit with or without kids, with exhibits that simultaneously amuse and educate visitors about aquatic life in Ohio. And while that’s pretty cool, the big draw are the creatures from the deep found not just in the sea tube, but also in the  touch tanks.

This is the best attraction of the Cleveland aquarium for me. This area where you can feed the stingrays is pretty neat. You normally just see these creatures on TV but now you can see them being fed and touched.
