When we stepped out of the hotel on this day we almost immediately wanted to turn around and go back to the cool hotel room. The humidity was kicking our butt. We have humidity in Virginia but this was ridiculous. After a small breakfast/lunch we headed for the waterfront. I suggested going to the Aquarium of the Americas simply to get out of the heat. We got in line to get our tickets. By the time we got in we were both sticky and hot. It felt great inside. Almost a little too cool but it turned out to only be like that right by the entrance. We enjoyed the first exhibit of the Caribbean Reef a lot.
I was surprised to see some parrots, an albino (!) alligator, a few other birds and a beautifully put together "Kids section". This is were the touch tank is located. You get to touch a mini shark or stingrays. Very cool.
After a couple of hours in the cool aquarium we got back outside. It was muggy and raining! Great!
We crossed the street and went to the Mall, I forget its name. Mainly high line stores not for the every day window shop. lol
We went back to the hotel to change since we did get wet on our walk back. For dinner we walked back towards the waterfront.
We decided to eat at "Landry's Seafood House". (see review)
After, we took one final stroll on Bourbon Street. Going back to our favorite spots like the Sing Sing.
