    Anyone want to ride the Maxima Clam Merry-go-round?

    The National Zoo. The corals are under the Reptile house in the invert exhibit and a lot of people miss it. If you're a reefer this is a must.

    Ooooh...I didn't know the zoo had an aquarium. I haven't been there in a couple of years, though.

    If you do, also stop at the Amazon exhibit with its massive freshwater tanks and then downtown at the national aquarium and nearby at the Oceans exhibit at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History
