Monterey Bay Aquarium

California-2015 1167A couple of months ago we visited this very special Aquarium in Monterey, CA, considered the best in the nation.  According to EWZ historians, Aquariums have never been featured on the site, so for one to be featured, it’s got to be extraordinary (rule 35.8 section g).  We only had about 90 minutes to explore, after a longish trip from Yosemite that included two food stops (I eat like a baby on vacation, every 2.5 hours) but we got a lot of it covered.  And I already posted about dinner that night, another highlight on a great day

  1. One of my favorite aquariums – did a similar trip a couple of years ago and spent several days with a friend in Monterey. Great city – loved the aquarium and seafoo to die for. Great opportunities for taking photos as well!!!

    Oh! I’m glad you were able to make it there! Do they still have the tide pool petting area where you can touch the starfish and such? I went at least once a year as a kid for field trips but haven’t returned for a few years now. The sea otters have always been my favorites.

    • Ye, that was great. It was a long day getting back to the coast from Yosemite, but one of the more memorable. Yes they still have those pools. Best Aquarium we’ve ever seen
