My kids love aquariums. When we go on vacations, we have got to work in an aquarium visit. Monterey Bay Aquarium is probably the most highly praised aquarium in California. And you can't pass up those types of reviews!
While the coastal location can't be beat, I still favor the Aquarium of the Pacific. Despite my personal opinion, an aquarium is an aquarium and it's pretty fascinating to see what goes on below the ocean's surface.
