Beat the Heat: Sea Quest Aquarium

Summer has officially arrived in Las Vegas. To be real, it's been here for about a month. But this week it was in the 90s and felt like death. So for any of my fellow Nevadans or Arizonans, I decided that we could all use some tips on how to beat the heat this summer. So I will be posting weekly activities that we're doing to keep us busy and cool all at the same time.

Awhile back, I was happy to accept an invitation to visit the new Sea Quest aquarium that recently opened here in Las Vegas. I was quick to jump at the chance. Sadly, the aquarium was about a 40 minute drive for us, so I won't be able to go back frequently, but I am so glad that I had the chance to experience it! And my little one was in absolute heaven.

Sea Quest is an interactive aquarium. We were able to hold a lizard (read: we both watched the worker hold the lizard because my daughter totally takes after me and is slightly anti-lizard-holding... but we could have held him if we wanted to). We fed fish and sting rays, which was a huge highlight for my little one. She was so excited that all of the fishies would flock to her when she dumped in her food. And she loved putting her fingers in the water. She wasn't so certain about touching the fish that came by, but she liked the idea of it. Her very favorite thing was going under some of the tanks. She loved looking up and seeing fish swimming above her.

Sea Quest Aquarium is set up really well. We traveled the world as we went from room to room, from the desert to the rain forest. Each room was like a different spot on the map and we enjoyed learning about the different species from each location. From stingrays to tortoise, sharks to snakes, the variety did not disappoint.


In all, it was a fun outing and with the temperatures now up, something we would definitely do to beat the heat this summer. If you are in Utah, Las Vegas, or Fort Worth, make sure to check out Sea Quest Aquarium this summer. If not, find a local aquarium! Your kids will love it, you will have something to fill an entire day, and you will stay out of this crazy heat. Happy Summer everyone!
