"It's all within an easy walk of the [train] station too – including The Maritime Aquarium, the one relatively new building in the group and the one that enables grownups to enjoy browsing and shopping while still entertaining the children."

Sea Star Fun Fact

Try not to call these cool shoreline creatures "starfish." Sea stars aren't fish, so the proper name is "sea star."  (Similarly, call them jellies, not jellyfish.)
