The Downtown Aquarium in Houston is the place to be for both adventure activities and an immersive dining experience. This facility is a product of redevelopment of two previous Houston landmarks – the Central Waterworks Building and Fire Station No. 1. Sitting on a whopping six acres of land, this entertainment hotspot is an aquatic wonderland with 500,000 gallons of water. Visitors can explore over 300 different aquatic species from around the world. There’s also an upscale bar, a full-service restaurant, a fully equipped ballroom, geographic exhibits, and shopping amenities.
