Oregon Coast Aquarium

2820 SE Ferry Slip Rd, Newport, 97365, OR

Considered one of the Top 10 aquariums in the U.S., its exhibit, “Oddwater,” states “it’s OK to be weird!” Oddwater examines some of the strangest looking creatures directly south of the sea level. Their popular sleepover program, “Sleep with the Sharks” is for kids 4 and older. It is held between 6 p.m. and 9 a.m., and takes place in sleepover tunnels surrounded on all sides by the aquarium. A pizza dinner and light breakfast is provided.
