Happy spring break season, Charleston. While parents of college kids are likely worrying about the dangers of drinking and swimming, parents of little ones are wondering what the heck to do with a week of free time and screaming kiddos.

The South Carolina Aquarium is here to help with their Passport to Fun program, which promises a schedule of over 100 activities from March 23-April 21. Visitors can grab a special map and complete the hands-on activity in each gallery to get a stamp (a stamp we say!)

In addition to their regular offerings, throughout spring break visitors can watch additional feeding demos with river otters and sea turtles (find the full feeding schedule at the information desk). You can also watch as animal caregivers provide aquarium residents with enrichment items like puzzles (heart melting, BRB).

Peruse all the fun activities online.
