NileGuide Expert Says:
This is the local aquarium. The true gem is located in Baltimore, about an hours drive north of DC.
- The oldest aquarium in the country has an unlikely home in the basement of the Department of Commerce. The dark concrete space seems to cater to the preferences of the fish with its cool atmosphere. The 70 tanks of various sizes hold many species, including those native to this country. Piranhas, alligators and sea turtles are among the other popular creatures to observe.
