Traveling Thru...

I thought I'd take a break this week from Theater Thursday, to tell you about my little road trip I took on Tuesday!

I got in the car and headed to Cincinnati! I love that place and since it's only takes about 3 hours to drive there, I thought why not and headed to the Newport Aquarium! 

If you've never been to the Newport Aquarium then you're missing out. They have everything from fish and frogs to birds, penguins and even alligators. Just remember... the Aquarium is actually located across the bridge in Newport, Kentucky so if you're driving downtown aimlessly unable to find it... that's why. 
Inside one of their overhead tunnels & yes there was a diver in there as well.
Sea Turtles are my favorite! 
I thought this guy was pretty cool looking too! 

A great view of Cincinnati
All in all it was a great day at the Aquarium and in Cincinnati with my Mom! We also hit up Jungle Jims and if you know anything about Cincinnati then you know that it's a great market! I even indulged in my love for Big Boy's burger and fries!

I love the Newport Aquarium. My husband worked there about 5 years ago, so I used to go ALL the time.

That is the cutest turtle ever!! I think aquariums might be my favorite place on earth. I go to the one in myrtle beach as often as I can!!
