Recently I took my family to visit the Ripley's Aquarium located at Broaway at the Beach and we had a wonderful time. When we first arrived we were greeted by a photographer who offered to take a family portrait. Our kids were very excited to start their journey through this amazing aquarium. We really enjoyed seeing the large variety of colorful fish swimming in the beautiful tanks. Ripley's often changes there main exhibition and this time it was mermaids which we all enjoyed seeing. The most exciting feature in the aquarium was what I refer to as the glass tunnel. It has an automatic walkway so you do not even have to take a step on your own! You are surrounded with sharks and other large fish swimming around you. Breath taking!!!
They also have a gift shop and a snack shop so if you just want to take a break and get something to eat and drink you do not have to leave. It was a great experience and I would recommend this to all. No matter what age I believe you would enjoy your time at the Ripley's Aquarium. If you are staying through one of the thirteen Vacation Myrtle Beach properties, be sure to check out the VMB list to see if Ripley's Aquarium is listed.
