Monterey Bay Aquarium

The Monterey Bay Aquarium is, in my opinion, the best aquarium on the West Coast. It could possibly be the best in the United States. It is not a SeaWorld or like any of those places. They don't make the animals perform tricks or anything. They try to display the animals in a natural environment. There are also so many amazing things to see that it takes up your whole day.

Wow, what a place! It has a kelp tank, touch pools, and a million-gallon Outer Bay tank that houses sharks, sea turtles, and sun fish. This is the same tank that held the Great White shark they had. She was beautiful!

I highly recommend this place for any and all families. I even like to take dates here. It isn't very expensive for such a great experience. Prices are Adults $21.95, Seniors $19.95, Student with ID $19.95, Children 3-12 $12.95, and children under 3 free. Disabled people can get a $12.95 entrance fee.
