Monterey Bay Aquarium

The aquarium was lots of fun. We were not prepared for the long line to get in, but don't worry. Even though we were in the black maze part of the line, we moved quickly and were inside the aquarium within 20 minutes. The aquarium was a lot more than I expected. It wasn't just amazing animals and plant life I had never seen before. It was sweeping vistas looking out over the Monterey Bay and amazing art and historical items interspersed with marine life. There were several areas just for children where they could explore items on their own terms. It wasn’t just observation either, as there were hands-on activities, art, dress-up, and play structures.

Open 10am to 6pm; on holidays they open at 9:30am. Re-entry allowed on same day. Bring in food, as you can eat outside.
