This may not be one of the largest aquariums in the country but it is still worth a visit. We went during the Halloween season and the variety of things to do in the aquarium was excellent. There was not only the glass walkway where sharks are swimming around you there is also an area to feed birds, see otters play, pet stinkrays and nurse sharks, discover your water weight (made me feel better), and enjoy a few shows.
Being Halloween they also had a few extra activities. Even my 14 year old didn't want to leave at the end of the day. We visited in 2005 but then it was $22 per adult, $13 for children but there are coupons in the entertainment book and other places buy one get one free making this very economical.
Our Grandson & Granddaughter were so happy to be visiting here. Activity on visiting an aquarium where all swim free with just glass separating us was a wonderful experience.
It was educational, fun and interesting trip all at the same time.
The Licking River separates Covington from Newport, flowing into the Ohio River directly opposite Cincinnati. This is a beautiful area, and a fine place for a walk.
Along the way are some 19th century Victorian-era homes, statues of luminaries such as naturalist John James Audubon and Indian Chief Little Turtle, and many scenic vistas along the Ohio and Licking Rivers.
John Thompson, inventor of the famous Thompson submachine gun, was a Newport native; his old home is now a nightclub, located near the levee.
This is an excellent place to go and just stroll about, have a meal in a restaurant, and just watch the people. Its most prominent feature is the Carroll Clock Tower, named for former governor Julian Carroll.
Points of contact are for the Mainstrasse Village Association.
One of the best ways to see Cincinnati is by riverboat. Since the boats dock in Covington, I decided to place this tip on my Covington page.
These narrated trips are very interesting and informative. They also provide a pleasant outing and an escape from the stress of driving around.
BB Riverboats is the main boat tour operator.
