The Downtown Aquarium is a fun family outing in downtown Houston.  The aquarium boasts sting-rays in touch pools, an octopus, and even a white tiger.  It is not a large aquarium, but the displays that they do have are well-done.  The kids will love the carnival rides (including ferris wheel and merry-go-round) outside.  We recommend that every family visiting the aquarium experience the Shark Voyage train ride.  Parents and children will enjoy the ride through the shark tunnel and "finding the lost great white shark".  With a Houston CityPass, unlimited access to the rides is just $5 more.
