Despite feeling sunburnt and beat-up from our long beach excursion on Wednesday, everyone still wanted to go to the beach on Thursday. I thought it best that we take a little bit of a break from the sea and sun (and avoid being at the beach during the hottest part of the day), so we spent the morning at the UGA aquarium.
UGA has a "marine extension" program in Savannah and they have a cute little aquarium/facility. It was a better deal for a family like our size, too! I'm sure the aquarium in Atlanta is amazing but it would cost our family around $260 to visit. The UGA aquarium cost us around $40.
It was really a quick little walk-through (I think they have something like 16 observation tanks), but we had a good time observing the marine life up close.
