Newport Aquarium reviews
A nice Aquarium overlooking the river just a cross from Cinci. Very popular, and surrounded by lots of other stores. Covered parking. Enjoyed it.

Absolutely love taking my kids here. Such a great place to go and see a wide arrange of sea life. Being able to touch sharks and rays was awesome. Even though you have to schedule a time to start, the place was pretty busy. We still had a blast!!!
This place is sweet. Tons of things to see here. The have fish from all over the world with great descriptive plaques. Lots of neat things they have done with the displays. They have aquariums with little indentations that you can stick your head into. They have glass floors so you can see underneath. They have tunnels where you can see the fish all around you. Pretty great spot to go for a day trip. A little crowded and I wish they would require people to wear masks. You don't have to wear one if you've been vaccinated but nobody is checking so come prepared with a good mask of you're concerned about COVID. Sweet place though. I highly recommend a visit.
