How's the parking in Monterey, CA.
Well worth the price - Monterey Bay Aquarium
The Monterey Bay Aquarium is at the end of Cannary Row and is open from 9:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and admission is $ 40 per person. Sounds like a lot, but it's a reasonable price when you consider that - unlike in German zoos - there is no state support.
The frequently mentioned parking problem can easily be avoided by driving past the aquarium and parking on Ocean View Boulevard. First there are some parking spaces with parking meters, but you can park for free about 500 meters away. For the Americans, of course, this is far too far away, so there were enough places available during our visit.
The aquarium itself then impresses with its modern and clean tanks. What is striking is the size of the individual aquariums, which almost takes your breath away.
Especially the large shark tank with hammerhead sharks and "The Ocean's Edge" are gigantic.
There are rather few small pools, but this is not noticeable negatively.
Outstanding is also "The Jelly Experience" where there are great lighted jellyfish tanks.
You shouldn't miss the outdoor area, where you can watch the wildlife of Monterey Bay with binoculars provided free of charge.
What can be done without, however, is the restaurant. Completely overpriced, long lines and poor quality. If you like, you can leave the aquarium to eat and - thanks to the stamp on the hand - come back later.
However, I dare to doubt that the food on offer in the immediate area is much cheaper or better.
I didn't like the feedings, which are particularly popular with all visitors. Especially the feeding of the penguins and at "The Ocean's Edge" were very much geared towards small children, we saved the other feedings.
Overall a great experience, we easily spent 4 hours here. The high price of admission shouldn't deter you from visiting.
