Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific, Undersea Adventure

Apr 4, 2008
One of the many attractions, and most sought after, in the average vacation researchers list of activities, is the aquarium. Most vacation spots have them, but the majority of them aren't very big, built mainly to get the vacationers to the region. Long Beach California, however, built the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific to be an experience to remember.

Big as a Whale!

The Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific is not simply a manner in which to kill a couple of hours. It is an all day attraction with fun filled sites and high-energy activities to keep the whole family occupied and having a great time. The aquarium is so large that you could actually fit three entire football fields, stands included, within it. Ranked as one of the number 1 vacation activities in the entire region, the aquarium boasts over five hundred various species of aquatic wildlife with over thirty exhibits in all.

Under the Water and In the Sky

Imagine the look of wonder on your family's faces as they wander into the phantoms of the deep exhibit and see creatures that do not have a heart, or those without eyes. Then, see their fascination and excitement as you get to the interactive Shark Lagoon exhibit. Here your family can actually touch some of the sharks! If you need a break from the undersea wildlife, wander through the aviary where you will find a massive variety of Australian birds that you can actually pet and hold. What a thrill for the entire family!

Sea Food

Of course, the children will get hungry after a bit, but no worries as the aquarium also features the Bamboo Bistro Caf. This is a tropical themed diner with a wide variety of delicious and fun foods for the kids and adults alike. From there, wander over to the Shark Shack gift shop and pick up some mementos to take back to remind you of this wonderful journey.

Please Touch

Then, it's right back to the water for more aquatic thrills at the "Please touch" exhibits. These are areas where children are encouraged to touch the wildlife and the museum exhibits. This is a nice change from the establishments where you have to constantly tell your children to not touch things. These areas consist of Kids Cove, an Auditorium, the Wet/Dry Classrooms, and a teacher's resource center.

At the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific, we believe that a child will learn more and remember better the activities that they can actually have a hands-on experience with, so we make it possible for your children to be a part of the exhibits themselves. The Long Beach Aquarium of the pacific is the best option for your next family vacation!
