My Great Find includes a Great Sleep. A few years ago, I slept over at the Vancouver Aquarium with my family, a few seals, and a pool full of sea stars.
We had the whole place to ourselves (and a few other families), including a host who showed us the entire Aquarium at night. We went behind the scenes and fishtanks to tour the operation - the part visitors normally don't see.
We fed the fish, otters, frogs, and other creatures and fell asleep watching the Beluga's - our heads rested on pillowcases we made while sipping our pre-sleep hot cocoa.
Overall we had a once-in-a-lifetime experience that totally surpassed visiting the Aquarium during the day. It cost just a bit more than the usual admission price and a nights stay at a hotel, but well worth it.
