Come Celebrate World Ocean’s Day Event at the New York Aquarium #WorldOceansDay

Disclosure: I am a member of the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Zoo Crew. This post is part of a sponsored campaign. I received membership for my participation, but my review and opinions are my own.

Hey everyone! We just got back from visiting the New York Aquarium and we are beat! It took us 2-1/2 hours to get to Brooklyn from the Hudson Valley because of a lot of traffic but it was well worth it.  The last time I visited the aquarium was in 1998. Times have change especially after Hurican Sandy.  The New York Aquarium has suffered a lot but they are rebuilding and it will be better than ever. I cannot wait til’ the transformation is ready.


First I wanted to give you important information about the World Oceans Day event coming up on the weekend of June 7th and 8th.

Today was THE perfect day to visit the aqaurium. The weather was fantastic. Nice and sunny and around 72 degrees.

We arrived around noon and spent the whole afternoon browsing around the aquarium and walking on the boardwalk. It was a fabulous day!

Here are some of the photos I took with my iPhone. I hope you enjoy them.
