The aquarium is right across the street from the parking garage. The parking garage is a good size, though some spots are a bit small. Skip the line tickets were great, especially since it was raining when we arrived. The aquarium over all was nice, it was a little smaller than I had been expecting it to be.

This was such a fun activity to do on the weekend. Lots do see and interact with. I loved that there were both indoor and outdoor exhibits to check out. Overall, we spent about 3 hours here and it wasn’t too crowded for a Saturday. However, we went earlier in the afternoon.

So easy. Last minute option to see Aquarium of the Pacific when COVID advanced bookings were required, and the aquarium’s site said it was sold out. Actually made entering even easier than if I’d purchased directly through aquarium.
