Monterey Bay Aquarium
With more than 55 million visitors since its 1984 debut, the Monterey Bay Aquarium is definitely a sight to see. Located on the historic Cannery Row, the aquarium was built with the intent of showing off the beautiful surrounding community and to inspire people to care for the world’s oceans. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is the first to successfully exhibit great white sharks, create a living kelp forest exhibit and create jellyfish exhibits. Today, the aquarium continues to practice conservation and conduct research in an effort to protect ocean wildlife.
