8. The North Carolina Aquarium in Pine Knoll Shores - There are three Aquariums in North Carolina Manteo, Wilmington, and Pine Knoll Shores. They are all great but my favorite is right here on the Crystal Coast.

You can see all kinds of sea life from huge sharks to sea otters. You can attend seminars, expos, and eco tours from walking trails to kayak trips to camps.

Depending upon the season you better bring some bug spray. You can do the fossil dig and look for shark's teeth or you can go to the gift shop. Another favorite is the Dairy Queen / Orange Julius right by the exit. In keeping with full disclosure I must add I own the Dairy Queen so eat up!!! Bring the family, bring the friends or even bring a big school group. It is very fun!!!!!

Come have a blast and enjoy the Crystal Coast!!!!!

Hi Mark, I love aquariums! This one offers a lot of variety too!  I would probably meet you at the Dairy Queen as well! :-)
