A landmark of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, the National Aquarium has been transporting visitors to the depths of the ocean for more than 30 years. Visitors can explore a coral reef and see its inhabitants at the aquarium’s Black Tip Reef exhibit, or get face-to-face with a sand tiger shark in Shark Alley. The Animal Planet Australia exhibit offers a chance to go “down under” and explore the plants and animals of Australia. The Maryland: Mountains to the Sea showcases the bullfrogs, diamondback terrapins, and striped bass that call the state’s rivers and marshes home.
