The New York Aquarium remains a must-see destination on Coney Island's celebrated Boardwalk. Watch the sharks, walruses and penguins eat their favorite meals at feeding time. Catch the sea lion show at the Aquatheater, or better yet meet one of the stars up close at the Sea Lion Encounter, open April 1 through Fall. And see if you can catch the changing colors of Squirt, the mischievous Giant Pacific octopus. For more information, visit nyaquarium.com.
