PLACES TO VISIT IN BOSTON CITY

Hey everyone, we are hoomies back with the next part of our Boston trip. In the previous post, we mentioned this beautiful city and about the stay. Here we will be talking about the places you can visit in Boston city.

The next day we got up a bit late as we were jet-lacked.

We got freshened up, cooked ourselves a great breakfast. We decided to go around the city and see what’s in store. We booked us an Uber and decided to head over to New England Aquarium. Opposite to this is an I-Max 3D theatre.

THE NEW ENGLAND AQUARIUM

This amazing aquarium is located in Boston, Massachusetts. Along with this are a beautiful Simons Imax Theatre and the New England Aquarium Whale Watch. This is one of the very commonly visited places here. It hosts around 1.3 million visitors each year. It was opened in 1969 and covers a land area of around 7000-meter square.

As you enter the place located in the central open atrium is the Giant Ocean tank. It’s a cylindrical-shaped 2000,000 US-gallon tank simulating a Caribbean coral reef. The tank is a major attraction here. This tank houses sea turtles, bonnet-head sharks, stingrays, and vary many fishes and marine lives. The tank is open at the top and is surrounded by a walkway that spirals down and allows visitors to access this amazing tank and offers views of the reef from every angle and level.
