There is nothing better than a rainy day to visit the Tennessee Aquarium. The aquarium in Chattanooga, TN includes two buildings, River Journey and Ocean Journey. We love both but our favorite building is the Ocean Journey. This area includes the penguins, butterflies and sharks!
After the butterfly garden, the viewing windows around the ocean tank is a favorite area. It includes sharks, a variety of fish, rays and two sea turtles. One of which is a rescued turtle. It’s back flippers were damaged in what they think was a boating accident. They have dive shows daily where you can ask experts about the inhabitants.
Before you exit, the path takes you through the underwater cavern. There are several windows and bubbles to sit in and view the fish from a different perspective.
We enjoyed our rainy day visit. Don’t miss the water play areas outside at the aquarium plaza. A great place to cool off rain or shine!
