Aquarium of the Pacific is one of our favorite family destinations in Southern California! Conveniently located in Long Beach, the Aquarium offers a variety of educational programs as well as family fun while exploring local ocean creatures.
The kids and I love visiting the Aquarium because there is so much to see. One of my favorite exhibits is the Shark Lagoon where we touch the rays. During each visit, that is typically our first stop.
The Penguins are also another favorite exhibit as we can stand and watch them swim and dive I their tank for hours.
Planning on visiting the Aquarium of the Pacific soon? They have a number of educational programs and special events going on throughout the year. Below is a list of the educational programs already scheduled for the month of March.
