December 5, 2021

There's something about aquariums that makes them feel magical. Maybe it is the sense of wonder they instill, which often makes people feel like children again, or perhaps it is all of the whimsical displays and colorful creatures that visitors can find there. Whatever it is, it pairs very well with the holidays! This holiday season, come visit the South Carolina Aquarium

The South Carolina Aquarium is striving to help families make meaningful memories this holiday season. To achieve this, they've installed all sorts of festive displays and planned a bunch of fun activities! Those who visit this December will enjoy...

Santa Sundays

This winter, Santa Claus is chilling in Charleston! He'll be at the aquarium every Sunday so that kids can share their wishlists and take pictures. To find him, look for his magical sleigh!

Adults get something out of the visit too! While you wait for the kids, you're encouraged to enjoy free coffee from Charleston Coffee Roasters!
