New Exhibits at Aquarium of the Pacific + Ticket Giveaway!

Our summer is not complete without a visit to our local aquarium in Long Beach. Home to 11,000 animals, we can spend hours at the Aquarium of the Pacific just pausing at each exhibit reading, learning, and observing. We all have our favorites, and I think mine is the underwater viewing tunnel, leafy sea dragons, and jellyfish. My boys love shark and all the beautiful colorful fish. We were just there this week, and although they have construction going on, the exhibits are unaffected and open for business. New exhibits include frogs and amphibians, archerfish, and interactive exhibits about California’s coastline.
