The Greater Cleveland Aquarium has been a city favorite for decades and is highly recommended by all.

Inside you will find almost 3,000 animals swimming around throughout the facility. Highly educational and extremely entertaining. Help feed the stingrays and walk alongside the massive 175 sea tube where barracudas and beautifully colored deep-sea fish swim beside you. The giant Pacific Octopus is a big hit that you can't miss out on and of course, they have sharks!
