Want to get face to fin with some aquatic wildlife but not a fan of diving? Well then the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center has you covered. Located just ten minutes away from our Virginia Beach resort, the aquarium is host to thousands of animals, representing more than 300 different species, including different kinds of rays, seals, turtles, sharks and otters. Along with the aquarium exhibits, visitors can also enjoy the visiting dinosaur exhibit with full-sized, fully animatronic dinosaurs that guests can actually operate themselves!
There is also a 3D theater featuring popular family films as well as educational adventures through places like deep under the sea and the Jurassic period. The Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center proves you don't have to necessarily get under the ocean to get closer to it.
