Today we visited the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA and used a coupon to get in for half price. You can easily find printable coupons for the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific that save you $3 off up to 4 admissions. Fortunately, we had the Entertainment Coupon Book Orange County edition, which had a coupon for buy one admission and get one free and was good for up to 4 admissions, which saved us $20.95. Parking cost $7 for the day.
The reviews I read for the aquarium online were pretty accurate–expect lots of kids and strollers, and many people in general. We went at about 1:30 pm and it was pretty packed, but the crowds had largely thinned out by 4 pm. Overall it was a very worthwhile visit.
The jellyfish aquariums were some of the most impressive exhibits I’ve seen–seeing the different species of jellies up close from just inches away was amazing. Being able to touch the small rays and sharks was awesome as well. I also had no idea that some species of sharks don’t give live birth but actually lay egg pods. Several were on display in aquariums that were due to hatch in July and August.
If you visit the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific be sure to at least use an online printable coupon to save $3 off the admission price, or better yet, save the entire price of up to 2 admissions by using the Entertainment Book Orange County edition!
