On Jun 20, 1998, Long Beach’s pride and joy, Aquarium of the Pacific, made its debut. Since then, the venue has become a touted favorite among locals and out-of-towners of all ages. Sharks enthrall us, tuxedo penguins amuse us and seals make us go “aww” and gaga. Moreover, AOTP is a highly commendable marine institution making learning a diversion plus the grounds of the aquarium are aesthetically attractive- perfect for picture taking and Instagram galore. This is not just a ditching spot for kids while grown-ups run off to the shoreline bar. Adults roam around this magnificent marine playground place and love it here too.
Here’s a lowdown of what to catch this special summer of 20:
