One Fish, Two Fish: 8 Fantastic Places to See & Touch Fish

Kids love fish. And there’s probably a good reason why. They watch them on the big screen, eat snacks shaped like them and even visit entire theme parks dedicated to them. So why not make your little fish fanatic happy this fall by heading to one of these local spots to watch (or even touch) our finned friends. Swim, err, flip through the gallery to see our favorite places where fish lovers (big and small) can meet these creatures of the deep.

A Place for Pets

Lots of pet stores have fish for sale, but not all of them are best suited for kids just wanting to look around. We picked A Place for Pets in Burien because they encourage young visitors to look at their fish and have super-friendly staff. There are all kinds of fish to see, plus a parade of other animals including rabbits and reptiles.

Good to Know: There's a tarantula upstairs, and you are allowed to hold her...if you dare.
