Monterey Bay Aquarium

We'd seen this place on a Nature special recently, and since we were in SF, we figured we might as well go. It was amazing! Definitely the most beautiful aquarium I'd ever seen. The collection of seahorses alone made it worth the trip, and I could look at the goings on in the million gallon tank for hours.


  1. Really? I grew up in northern California, went here several times as a kid. But I went back with my own young kid a few months ago, and found it oppressively overcrowded and noisy - basically, nothing like your photo. The noise was from background music and "expert" commentary blasted over the omnipresent speakers. I feel like they're so busy trying to educate me, they've forgotten that most of us just like to stare in the amazing, million-gallon tank (in peace).

    Love your book and blog, by the way.

  2. Lovely place. We - me and wife Mrs Saroj Sinha visited this place in Oct 2010..
