Home to more than 100 exhibits and thousands of animals, the Oklahoma Aquarium is a great place to spend the day with the family. Here, you can pet stingrays, feed turtles and walk through the shark tunnel. Click here for a full feeding schedule; recent visitors suggested visiting on a Monday or Thursday in the early afternoon to witness a shark feeding.

Located about 15 miles south of Tulsa in the town of Jenks, the Oklahoma Aquarium is open year-round from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. On Tuesdays, it stays open until 9 p.m. Some say admission is a little pricey: expect to pay about $16 for adults, $14 for seniors and military personnel and about $12 for children between the ages of 3 and 12. Visit the aquarium's website for more information.
