This weekend I had the pleasure to visit the Shedd Aquarium located in Chicago, IL. It was a fun filled exciting day! I took my nephew Chris with me and we had so much FUN! We started the day out walking around to all of the exhibits on the main floor. The Caribbean Reef, Amazon Rising, Oceans, Local Waters, Islands and Lakes and Rivers.

Next we went down stairs to the Abbott Oceanarium and the Polar Play Zone. After getting the lay of the land we decided to wait in line a little early for the Aquatic show that was starting at 12:00. Man was it worth it! We ended up in the front row and got to see the penguins up close and personal!

After the show we decided to have some lunch! Bubble Net food court was where we went. The food was surprisingly inexpensive. Chris had pizza and I had a chicken sandwich all for under $20.00. Our next adventure was to the 4-D movie! We saw Ice-Age. It was really fun and it made me jump in my seat a few times!

Were ready for the 4-D show!

The Jellies were the last exhibit on our list and we saved the best for last! I was always intrigued with Jelly fish but I never took the time to see how majestic they were.

Here are a few tips that I would recommend to anyone planning a trip to Shedd Aquarium. Go with the Valet parking its worth the extra $6.00. Also make sure to buy your tickets in advance it will cut your wait time in half at least.
