If you're ever in the Norfolk/Virginia Beach/Newport News area, you've got to make time for the underwater wonders of the the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center. Located just a couple minutes from the Virginia Beach beach front, the has over 800,000 gallons of fresh and salt water exhibits showcasing hundreds of different fish, reptile, and amphibian species.

Being one of the biggest tourist attractions near Virginia Beach, it's an excellent place to visit during spring break or your summer vacation. I went during spring break and these pictures only show a glimpse of all of the amazing species they have there.
