A four-story, 80,000-gallon conservatory, the Dallas aquarium is small but just right for the kids. The aquarium is laid out in a rainforest-style, with the top floor serving as the canopy with birds and monkeys and flowing down to the rainforest floor, where fish, snakes and crocodiles await. Three onsite restaurants are spread out throughout the space, including Cafe Maya with Tex-Mex cuisine and eighteen-O-one with international foods from around the world, including British Columbia, Fiji and Indonesia. Each offers children’s selections.
