Downtown Aquarium: Mermaids

Field review by the editors.

Denver, Colorado

Teams of up to eight "Mystic Mermaids" swim daily in an otherwise normal big city aquarium. The mermaids spilt their time between the Under the Sea exhibit and a tank buttressing the attraction's restaurant. See women in bikini tops and fish tails choreographed to music as they swim with sea turtles, yellowtail snappers, and eels, and teach us the importance of good environmental stewardship.
