The Newport Aquarium is one of the premier aquariums in the country and it's one of the closest major ones to the tri-state. On a hot day, it's the perfect spot, now what if I told you kids get in FREE there this summer?

Sundays through Fridays beginning May 26th, this Sunday, kids ages 2-12 get in free after 4:00 p.m. ET with the purchase of an adult ticket.

The offer is good through July 21st and the tickets must be purchased online HERE.

It's Shark Summer at the aquarium with the addition of a new... baby shark! I can hear the song now. The exhibit runs the same dates as the kids' free admission period. Guests will get a chance to help name the new baby epaulette shark.

Check out this walkthrough video tour of the aquarium, shot on a GoPro:

Looks like a fun summer road trip/activity to me!
