Oregon Coast Aquarium

The Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, Oregon consistently ranks among the top 10 aquariums in the US. All of my indoor photos were taken through glass. There was an open "petting" tank, but that didn't seem too camera friendly, especially with the Kid next to me. The aquarium also has some really cool glass tubes, constructed so that you are walking with visible fish swimming on both sides, above, and below you. The "big-name" fish in those tanks included halibut, a variety of sharks, and rays, but I didn't take any photos of them.

It was nice to visit on a sunny day, as there were various outdoor exhibits as well.
