    Texas State Aquarium and The Lexington
    Both are great activities for kids and adults. They are educational as well as entertaining. The Lex is always having some sort of dance, or activity on it, and now they have a new large screen movie theater.

    The Texas State aquarium is a great way to spend an afternoon. Lots of great exhibits from local flaura and fauna to the exotic. Kids love the touch pools.

    Sea turtle

    The Texas State Aquarium is terrific. Only the Shedd in Chicago can top it. You can get really close to the animals, even touching sharks, stingray, snakes, crabs, etc...
