Today while we were out shopping the Sea Captain and I saw several billboards for Ripley's Aquarium with lovely mermaids on them saying Text Maid to XXXX for more information. You know I had to run right home and check it out!
So the big news is Ripley's aquarium here in Myrtle Beach has got mermaid shows going on all summer (May 27th until September 5th.)
It would seem that the week-long visits from the Weeki Wachee mermaids over the past couple of summers really got business booming so Ripley's has trained their own girls!
There will be three shows daily (12, 4 and 8pm) plus the opportunity to visit the mermaids and have your picture taken. You can also visit Ripley's Fancy Fins Mermaid Boutique for makeovers and to purchase souvenirs. There will also be Mermaid Camps, where you can learn to swim with the mermaids (ages 6-14.)
