Good Place to Visit: National Aquarium

I visited the National Aquarium in Baltimore yesterday. It is absolutely worth recommending to anyone who wants to relax. The aquarium locates at a harbor, connecting to the Atlantic Ocean. I could see wharf easily, so the atmosphere there is very different from that in Washington.

The aquarium has many types of animals, including amphibians, birds, invertebrates, mammals, and reptiles. It is special that the pavilions simulate the habitats of these different aquicolous animals. It exhibits not only many different types of animals, but also the environment they normally live in and the underwater plants in their habitats.

The dolphin show was also fascinating. Dolphins could respond to their trainers by playing with balls, nodding, clapping hands, and spattering water to the audience. By looking at the colorful and smart animals, I feel particularly compelled to protect the environment. They represent one dimension of our world, making the world magical. They are wonders of oceans, lakes, and rivers. Their happiness is our happiness.

If anyone wants to relax and know more about the underwater world, the National Aquarium is a highly worthwhile place to go! It is an hour away from where we live.
