Even though Lake Jackson doesn't have something that spectacular that is worth visiting or stopping there, nevertheless if you do so or plan to visit this area, then according to my opinion, the best place to check out is definitely the Sea Center.

Great job done by volunteers where you can experience the magical world of aquariums for FREE. But i would suggest you to leave some money, because you will realize that people working there are very professional and friendly and certainly the end result is great. If you have kids, then visit the so-called 'touch' tank where kids will have the opportunity to touch little water creatures. Great fun combined with education! Well done guys!

This is a great little fun place. It includes a petting tank and several other tanks showing fish in our area including a couple of nurse sharks and a huge eel. My kids favorite is walking the pier that is also next to a butterfly garden that is home to many caterpillars and butterflies each year. It typically takes 30 minutes to an hour to see the tanks. It's free fun (although leaving a donation is one of my kids' favorite parks) we typically spend an hour or so on the pier.

What's better than a free thing to do! The people there are super friendly and the fish are pretty cool to look at. They even have yours you can go on.
