Shark Lagoon Nights at the Aquarium

Friday, May 4 | 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Aquarium of the Pacific | 100 Aquarium Way, Long Beach, CA, 90802

It’s likely that you have been to the Aquarium of the Pacific at least once during the day; if not once, possibly more visits than you can count. We like this event because it’s a unique experience for local families to visit the aquarium in the evening when the crowds have dissipated and the sharks are in “night mode.” It’s nice to indulge in a cup of coffee, hot cocoa, wine or beer and casually enjoy the outside aquarium space with family. Best of all, this event is free!
