No visit to Boston would be complete without a stop in at the New England Aquarium. Located right on Boston harbor, the aquarium has been undergoing a massive renovation that is almost complete. During the project, the New England Aquarium’s Giant Ocean Tank has undergone a top-to-bottom, 21st-century transformation.

Starting July 1, the penguins (and the animals in the Giant Ocean Tank) will be back and awaiting your visit! To give a little perspective about just how important the 23-foot-deep, 40-foot-wide Giant Ocean Tank is to the New England Aquarium, consider this: The 200,000 gallon, saltwater tank is so big that it was built … [Read more...]
