Turtle Canyon is the newest aquatic exhibit to join the Newport Aquarium. Featuring 14 different species and some of the largest and smallest turtles in the world, the star of the show is the 600-pound Galapagos turtle, Bravo. He may be old β€” 84 to be exact β€” but he’s known for climbing a rock or two to fetch a meal.

And thanks to the turtle corral, guests have the opportunity to get personal and touch a variety of the reptiles β€” young, old, big and small. 

10 a.m.-6 p.m. daily. $45; $29 children; $40 senior. Newport Aquarium, Newport on the Levee, Newport, Ky., newportaquarium.com.
