Love aquariums? I do! There’s a great little aquarium tucked right into the La Jolla cove called the Birch Aquarium. A great place for all ages, this aquarium showcases jellyfish, a seahorse exhibit, climate change displays, sharks, a huge octopus and much more! The exhibit overlooks the Scripps Coastal Reserve and you can look at the beautiful view while you explore the Aquarium’s tide pools. Parking is free and close to the exhibit. College students can go for as little as $7, Adult tickets are $17, and children tickets vary at lower prices They also offer senior and Military discounts.
The display expands through two hallways, as well as the outdoor area. It’s not a very big exhibit, which is nice because it’s not overwhelming. If you’re looking for an educational aspect right on the beautiful coast, I suggest you take a look at the Birch Aquarium.
