      While visiting San Francisco, California, my husband and I rented a car and drove about two hours to Monterey to see the Aquarium. They were supposed to have one of the best aquariums around, and we are both lovers of ocean-life.

      I have to say we were both disappointed when we arrived.

      Parking was $25 per day, the Monteray area was


      nothing special to see, and the Aquarium was packed with bratty kids and day camps/field trips.

      There was a ton of screaming and running around.

      We both felt it really took away from the experience of watching the beautiful sea creatures in their natural environment.

      We also signed up for a behind the scenes tour which we hoped would be better ...


      • than our own self-guided tour.

        We thought we would learn about what goes on behind the scenes–where the animals come from, how the capture them, what they eat, what their personalities are like, etc.

        Instead, we had some young girl that looked to be about high school age lecture us on different photographs taken that were hanging up on the walls

        around the aquarium.

        She also talked about the water and how it comes in and where it comes from.

        It was enough to put anyone to sleep.

        We wished were didn’t waste the money or time traveling to Monterey, but we did see some amazing views along the coast when we drove back to Fisherman’s Wharf.

        I guess it wasn’t a complete flop.
