Check Out These Aquariums Around Buda

If you’re a lover of the deep blue, you’ll be happy to know that Buda and the surrounding area is home to fantastic aquariums. Here are a few to check out near our Buda apartments.

Intrinsic Reef Design

Since its establishment in 2008, this aquarium boasts an array of spectacular biodiversity. With over 600 different species, you will indeed find one-of-a-kind animal encounters. One of the highlights is the enormous touch tanks where you can touch live sea stars, sea urchins, horseshoe crab, and jellyfish. Furthermore, this aquarium offers aquarium installation and maintenance services.

Capital Aquariums

Capital Aquarium prides itself as Buda's best tropical fish store. It has a wide selection of marine fish and coral. Interactive touch tanks let visitors get acquainted with different animals, such as puffins. The staff also provides educational sessions.

The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment

This Center has been the locals' favorite since its establishment in 1946. The highlights here are the glass-bottom boat tours of the spectacular Spring Lake. The lake features endangered species, and therefore visitors are prohibited from fishing. The tour guides also offer educational activities to reawaken the bond between humans and nature. If you like geology, history, and nature, this place is worth a visit.

After a long day of exploration, what better way to end the day than stopping by a local restaurant for a flavorful meal?
