Colorado Ocean Journey, which opened in June 1999, is a world-class aquarium that immerses visitors on two journeys, from the Continental Divide in Colorado to Mexico's Sea of Cortez, and the other from an Indonesian rain forest to the Pacific Ocean. The Rocky Mountain West's only aquarium will also show visitors how all water and water life are inter-related.

There is even a sea otter cove, home to two Southern sea otters, Gracie and Taylor, two orphans of a storm who were rehabilitated but could no longer survive in the wild.

Not only is it a fun place, it's also educational...hey, kill two birds with one stone.
