An Adventure with Ripley’s Aquarium

Hey Beauties!

I’m currently sitting in bed sick as can be but a few days ago I bundled myself up and brought plenty of tissues on an adventure with Stephanie from Tragic Wardrobe. A couple of months ago we were lucky enough to be offered the chance to visit the Ripley’s Aquarium in Toronto and I was not going to miss it no matter how ill I felt. 

Stephanie and I hopped on a train and headed into the city for lunch at the famous Old Spaghetti Factory – somewhere neither of us had ever been – and stuffed ourselves with delicious pasta and yummy bread with garlic butter. Then we walked over to the Ripley’s Aquarium to experience one of the most amazing days of our lives. I took as many photos as I could just so I could share the experience with you so take a look at my trip to the Ripley’s Aquarium.

Ripley’s Aquarium was such an awe inspiring place. It is a home for people of all ages to come explore and learn a little something about the underwater universe that we might not fully appreciate. It is a place that encourages education and makes it truly fun to learn with hands on stations and plenty of fun interactive games in each section. You have the chance to get up close and personal with millions of species that you would never imagine being able to see let alone touch – a few specific ones. It immerses you in a magical world and gives you the chance to connect to these animals in a way that is safe for you and them. It is obvious that the animals are thought of first, their health, safety and happiness is top priority and they are being cared for by people who love them. 

The Ripley’s Aquarium is truly an amazing attraction right in the heart of Toronto and I think that everyone needs to visit at least once so go on and have you own adventure. 

*Thank you to Ripley’s for having us*

    This looks like such a fun day! I love aquariums. Vancouver has a pretty nice one as well, but we could use a sea tunnel like this one!
