A couple months while returning from San Diego we stopped at the Long Beach Aquarium (Aquarium of the Pacific).  They have a pretty wide variety of aquariums and marine animals.

Finding Nemo Tank

They also have some terrariums.

Leafy Sea Dragon
.

They have some massive tanks that have all types of creatures big and small.
.

They also have a few interactive tanks where you can touch the animals.

Petting a sting ray!

 This 2-story tall wall of water is pretty awesome and puts the size of some of these fish in perspective.

Fish are definitely the main attraction and have the best exhibits, but there are some others. The otters are fun to watch play but tricky to photograph. The penguin and seal/sea lion exhibits are pretty weak. But if you like looking at colorful fish and coral, we highly recommend visiting it if you’re in Long Beach. It made us want to get a fish tank!
