Detailed Description:

Perched on a Bluff above the Pacific Ocean, the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, Birch Aquarium is worth visiting simply for the views. Along with MCASD: La Jolla, it’s one of the most breathtaking locations for cultural institutions in San Diego. It houses over 60 habitats of different fish species from all over the world (from the tropics to the Arctic). An interactive oceanographic museum features exhibits showcasing the institute’s scientific discoveries as well as all kinds of cool ocean crafts (who doesn’t love submarines…). For the kids, there are tons of opportunities to view and touch the otherworldly creatures that we share our ocean depths.
