Astonishment – SEA LIFE MALL OF AMERICA (Bloomington | MN)

There are numerous lakes nearby but no access to the ocean in my area. Fortunately there is a nifty aquarium located in the lower level of the Mall of America where you can look at different types of ocean dwelling creatures. SEA LIFE is surprisingly large for being in a shopping mall and has impressive exhibits. What’s really cool is being able to walk through a hallway with curved panels of glass above your head that allow for you to see the different inhabitants of the ocean as if you’re actually underwater with them. There are also a few areas where you can touch the animals!

It’s one of those places that attracts a lot of children but it’s great for adults as well. Something about staring at all of the water and creatures is really calming for the mind, especially with all of the distractions of life consuming us 24/7. It’s an interesting juxtaposition to all of the chaos happening on the upper levels of the mall.
