The novelty of seeing land animals and marine creatures in one place makes Point Defiance an attractive prospect. Its 29 acres are divided into themed areas like Rocky Shores/Tundra, Wild Wonders, North Pacific Aquarium, and Asian Forest Sanctuary, which features endangered primates and tigers in an approximation of their natural habitats. Rare beluga whales are also a draw. Free parking, spectacular views of surrounding scenery, and plenty of eating and shopping options keep happy visitors coming back.
