    We went to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach and had the best time ever!  This aquarium is amazing, there are so many different sections and plenty to see and do for all ages.  We spent about 3 hours touring around and we still didn’t see every section.  If you are in California on vacation or live here and looking for something to do I would definitely recommend this.
