Mystic — USA Today has named Mystic Aquarium as one of the country’s top 20 aquariums in North America and now readers can go online and vote for their top aquarium in the newspaper’s Readers Choice poll.
USA Today used data provided by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to choose the nominees. These included number of annual visitors, size, total of aquarium gallons, number of members, entrance fee affordability, awards and commitment to conservation.
The aquarium is up against facilities such as the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California and the New England Aquarium in Boston. Votes must be cast by noon, Aug. 18.
Those wanting to choose the aquarium may vote online. One vote a day can be cast.
Anyone voting for Mystic Aquarium will receive 10 percent off general admission or $10 off a new membership.
