Today John, Jan, Tom and I visited the Tennessee Aquarium and also saw one of their famous 3D IMAX movies title "Born to be Wild".

The Tennessee Aquarium is the top-rated aquarium in America and offers a journey through two buildings. One is the "River Journey", the other is the "Ocean Journey". Each is similar but different in their own way. The River Journey fascinates you with river otters, turtles, alligators, giant catfish and thousands of freshwater wonders where the Ocean Journey delights you with such things as penguins, sharks, butterflies and often scuba divers who dive in and feed the fish for your enjoyment. Its a good idea to plan at least two hours for your aquarium visit. There is one admission for both the River Journey and the Ocean Journey.

One of my favorites is in the Ocean Journey where you enter into their tropical rainforest and you are greeted by swirling butterflies. They are really neat.

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch downtown at Tony's. Tony's is a local Italian Restaurant right in the heart of downtown. They have both indoor and outdoor dining. Prices are usually under $20.00.
