What do you think of when the Denver Aquarium comes to mind? A weekend outing for the kids? If you are looking for an unusual place to meet friends or have a wonderful night out, the Denver Aquarium may be just the spot.
Start the evening in the restaurant with some of the fabulous entrees. Take your time. You'll enjoy watching the fish swimming by, sharks included, as you dine. They will not, however, allow your to pick your dinner from the many varieties in the tank.
Then it is time to take a stroll through the main aquarium features. What makes this outing so great is that you and your family or friends will have most of the place to yourself.
There is something about sharks that fascinates me. I don't have to wait for my turn at the glass and then hope that the sharks swim somewhere close. I can press my nose up against the glass and really look at those incredible teeth. If I want to spend hours looking, I can. Then there are the clown fish. If you here someone say, "Nemo", you know that those colorful swimmers are just around the corner. There is also large snake collection for reptile lovers.
So, if you haven't made plans for Friday night and it looks like all the restaurants are already full, take the leap and visit the aquarium at night. You may enjoy it enough to make it a habit.
The Denver Aquarium is open until 10:00 pm. on weekdays and 11:00 pm. on Friday and Saturday nights. Dinner will run about $40-$50 per person with a wonderful entree, appetizers and drinks. The visit to the aquarium will add an additional $13.75 per person for adults. It will be a memorable and enjoyable night out on the town, especially when the kids come along.
