The Dallas World Aquarium is an awesome place. Plan accordingly it will likely be crowded. It is located downtown with plenty of other attractions witing walking distance, but you could spend a whole day here if you tried.

This is a great place to visit. We loved seeing the penguins and the river otters. The large fish are very impressive and it has a really nice atomisphere nestled in downtown Dallas.

Always clean and easy to find parking. Places to eat within walking distance. A little pricey. But worth it. Must see the penguins.
