Visit the Country’s Best Aquariums without Leaving Home

Learn about sharks, sea otters, and other fascinating creatures with these webcams at some of the country’s best aquariums. They always capture the animals in action. Here are three you can enjoy from your living room at The Clayson:

Georgia Aquarium 

With more than ten million gallons of water, the Georgia Aquarium offers experiences that “promote the conservation of aquatic biodiversity throughout the world.” As a leader in animal care, it strives to foster a deeper appreciation for the ocean and the marine life that calls it home. Tune into to the southern sea otter webcam. These charming animals are among the smallest of all marine mammals. You’ll watch as they climb on the rocks and chase each other through the water.

Shedd Aquarium 

A Chicago fixture since 1930, the Shedd Aquarium connects nature lovers and animal enthusiasts with the natural world. It’s home to thousands of creatures found in naturalistic habitats. Online, visitors can enjoy the Underwater Beauty exhibition. You’ll enter a fascinating world full of jellyfish, ribbon eels, and mantis shrimp. The exhibit highlights how the animals adapt to their natural habitats, and an underwater webcam offers a glimpse into their world. 

National Aquarium

Called one of the country’s top three aquariums, the National Aquarium has welcomed over 51 million visitors since 1981. It’s home to over 20,000 animals and works to inspire conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures. The live cams offer a look into several exhibits, including Blacktip Reef.  Viewers watch as the majestic sharks dart along the water’s surface. Rays skim the sandy bottom, while vibrantly colored fish weave between the corals.

As a resident of our Palatine apartments, you’ll also enjoy proximity to some of Chicagoland’s premier shopping and dining destinations. If you’re looking for a place to call home, then please contact our leasing staff. They’d love to give you a tour.
