Our family is definitely afflicted with a bug. The travel bug that is. LOL! We love exploring and traveling. We love going on long trips and seeing the world with our kids. But we also love local travel. Seeing what we can find in our own backyard, or at least places we can get on one tank of gas or less. Recently we got to head over to Auburn Hills, which is a suburb of Detroit and visit the SEA LIFE Aquarium.
The kids were all very excited to go! We love marine life and aquariums. SEA LIFE MI is very easy to find is is located in a neat mall. There is all sorts of family fun to be had right there…dining, shopping and of course the aquarium.
As we were in line they told us that we needed to look out for dive stations and the kids could stamp their passports as we went through. If they completed the passport they would get a free prize at the end. The dive stations were well marked and easy to find!
There were several hands on exhibits..including a pool where you could touch different creatures! The kids loved that part. I was amazed at all the colors. This is a pretty small aquarium, I mean, it’s inside a mall. So while it was the smallest aquarium we’ve been to, I will also say that it was the most colorful aquarium we’ve been to! There were fish and creatures here we’d never seen before! It felt like there was new colors everywhere!
There was a really cool shark and a tunnel we could walk through. That was the highlight for the boys! They loved watching the shark swim beside them and over their heads.
If you plan a visit to SEA LIFE MI, make sure you check out their website before you go for discounts and more! Also, some families will enjoy dining at the Rain Forest Cafe located just outside SEA LIFE MI. Since there were 7 of us, we drove across the street and enjoyed an inexpensive lunch at Costco!
