The new Sea Life Aquarium Grand Opening February 20th

An exciting new family friendly venue is opening February 20th.  Sea Life Charlotte-Concord Aquarium features more than 20 spectacular and diverse displays of marine life which includes an acrylic walk-through underwater tunnel and a touchpool. Visitors will travel from the fresh waters of the Catawba River in the Blue Ridge Mountains to the salt waters of the Atlantic Ocean and beyond in about an hour.

The Aquarium is specifically designed to educate and engage kids and the young at heart, the 36,000-sq-ft aquarium will bring visitors face-to-face with the underwater world.

We got a preview prior to the opening and I must say, my pictures don’t even do it justice. This is a ” see in person” kind of place.
