Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport

While waiting for your flight at the Detroit Metro Airport, check out what some may have mistaken (and probably used) as a large walk-in shower.  In the middle of the concourse is a animated water fountain -- a huge circular flat-top granite structure -- that shoot jets of water.  It's like a someone on one side is spitting water at someone at the other side, who shoots back and them.  But the most amazing part is that despite it being flat, not a drop of water spills out --that is until someone plays with the spray.

Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport

No this isn't a rave. And despite the trippy colors, the space is quite calming, helped by the Zen-like music pumped in. Take a "trip" while at the Detroit Metro airport in their psychedelic tunnel between Northwest Airlines’ Concourse A and Concourse B & C in the McNamara Terminal.

Chicago O’Hare International Airport

Over 44 different types of organic herbs and vegetables grow in the world's first aeroponic (without soil) garden in the middle of the O'Hare Airport. You can sample the fresh produce at several restaurants in the airport including Stanley's Blackhawks Lounge and the Wicker Park Seafood and Sushi Bar.

Denver International Airport

Since the airport's beginnings in 1995, conspiracy theorists have run wild with claims that underneath Denver International lies secret military bunkers.

The airport is also decorated with some pretty creepy murals. One painting depicts what is presumed to be a Nazi soldier holding a sword with dead women and children scattered around him.

Are these paintings secret Illuminati messages and symbols as many believe, or simply weird works of art?

In case you missed out on the many aquariums in San Francisco, take your kids to the aquarium in the airport!
