This series has changed from “Places I want to visit when I move to Virginia” to “Places I want to visit when I have time and money now that I live in Virginia”. But, the idea is still the same. 🙂 I will report on all of these places when I finally get to go to them.

At just over 2.5 hours away (Virginia Beach), a trip to the Virginia Aquarium will be an all-day affair. Or perhaps a weekend event. However, I’m excited to have a decent sized aquarium within driving distance.

The Virginia Aquarium seems like it must be pretty big (despite the appearance of the entrance). They have a couple of uniquely themed exhibits (such as the Mediterranean Sea) that I look forward to exploring. They also have a 3D theater.
If you’ve been to the Virginia Aquarium feel free to leave some tips in the comments. Or perhaps recommendations of other nearby attractions.
