9.5The aquarium was located in a shopping complex on the waterfront. Lots of options for dining and shopping afterward. Because of the rain, there were strategically placed buckets on the higher floors to catch leaks. They really don't get much rain here. It was a $27 Uber ride away from Anaheim making it somewhat convenient. The price point was good and the gift shop was amazing.
Zoos, Museums, and Aquariums are our jam. We love a chance to sink our teeth into a new learning experience. The Aquarium of the Pacific was the perfect opportunity to find our groove on a rainy Los Angeles day.
Yes, you read that previous sentence correctly. It rained in Los Angeles… hard rain. According to a local, it had been 252 days since their last rain. I guess we brought the unusual weather with us. So we skipped Disneyland and headed to the Aquarium of the Pacific.
The first thing you notice inside is the whale suspended from the ceiling with her calf. This incredible life size beauty is breath taking.
This aquarium was a fantastic little nugget. It was a wonderful stop on our West Coast journey. We loved the Seahorses and the Jelly fish. I have to say Jelly Fish (behind glass and out of stinging range) are absolutely beautiful. They had so many variety of each species.
And my son found his spirit animal. This Sea turtle was so interested in the kids and would follow them around from the other side of the tank. So cool.
We made it in time to watch the Seal and Sea Lion show. A couple of lucky kids got the chance to participate in the training session and its always cool to watch these amazing animals interacting with the staff.
And there were tons of hands on petting areas. From sharks, horseshoe crabs, rays, and even star fish and anemone. Aren’t these star fish beautiful.
The Frog exhibit was also amazing. Check out this poisonous Blue Dart Frog.
We had a fantastic time at the Aquarium of the Pacific. The gift shop was amazing. Whoever chooses their stock does an incredible job. Both the kids were able to find something they couldn’t live without. Check out this awesome gift shop.
And check out these cool Kitchen accessories.
I am so thankful we could carve out some time to go there.
