My love for the ocean runs deep and strong. It stems from childhood adventures at the beach and long road trips to lakes and streams. As a child I loved everything and anything that had to do with the ocean. From dolphins to whales to all movies involving some type of water and sci-fi…I loved it all. Don’t judge because Waterworld was a great movie!! Who doesn’t need paper?! Ohhhkay…no more waterworld references!
The Long Beach Aquarium is world famous (who’d’ve thunk it?) and downright amazing place for adults and children. My little man and I went for his very first visit and he loved it! He stuck his little tiny hands wherever he could…including the mini-shark area. We stroller-ed it for his first time and then went without for his next visits. I just got tired of taking him in and out when clearly he wanted out (he’s about 21 months now for those inquiring!). With close friends and family, we explored it SeaQuest style and enjoyed it very much.
It is so great to see that the Aquarium is even better than it was when it opened in 1998…that was during my heyday! When it opened, I was expecting beluga whales to be there like in Head Over Heels…again, don’t judge! Back then it was cool to have your prom there!
It is such a kid-friendly place and if you’re in the Long Beach area…please go! There is so much more to do there than just looking through glass.
