The Aquarium of the Pacific is the largest aquarium on the west coast. In fact, it almost feels too large. It feels like you are walking for an eternity to get through this aquarium. The great thing is that they have lots of exhibits for the kids where they can touch animals and see how things work. It is also really cool because there is an outdoor portion of the aquarium that has touch pools and they are really good about making it easy to get some good pictures of your kids. The people working there will duck out of the way and make it so that there is a really nice shot. Actually, my kids would have just been happy staying outside and playing in the touch pool instead of walking through the while aquarium.
