What's that huge pyramid thing?
That's the Aquarium pyramid at Moody Gardens
. One is the aquarium, one is a "rainforest" exhibit (and also 3D nature films) and the other is a children's museum and houses a movie ride. The hotel and convention space is right across the parking lot.
Here's the daytime view from our hotel room:
It's a tourist attraction mostly geared towards kids & families, but I'm a sucker for anything with animals. Hubby went to the convention but it was mostly centered on B5. So, I let him go while I did all the touristy stuff. The hotel was awesome, but I think, if we had to pay peak season rates, we would have never been able to afford it.
