North Carolina Aquarium

Aquarium in Crystal Coast

It's not the most impressive aquarium out there, and is a tad pricey, but offers a good option for small children or those wanting to explore the waters of North Carolina without getting wet. You can get up close to thousands of marine species, meet a stingray and white sea turtle, and come face to face with a shark.

There's also an outdoor play area for the kids.
