This is one large aquarium like many others in California, I like this one in particular, simply because it's the closest to Los Angeles. You should plan a day at this aquarium, it's a great place for adults but also for kids to learn about our Pacific inhabitants.

100 Aquarium Way, Long Beach, CA 90802, USA

Price:
Adult $21, Child $12

Opening Hours:
9:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m.daily

How to get there:
Drive down the 110 South until you hit the 405, then get on the 710 South and follow the road signs.
