Oregon Coast Aquarium

The Oregon Coast Aquarium is fantastic. We really enjoyed ourselves, and the displays were spectacular. Clean glass, clear water, great specimans. Enough to see and do to make it worth the money, yet not too much information as to be overwhelming. We found it to be very engaging and really a great time for the whole family. I'd rate it as a definite "score".

It looks like a great place. I used to love the aquarium for the petting ponds. Monterey Bay has a wonderful aquarium. Bjorn and I visited a few years ago. Sea World does their best, but again too big and too much to see for just one day. Also toooo many people.

Looks like lots of fun! So do the twins not mind being in the stroller while the other kids are walking? My girls now holler "out" when we go out somewhere and as you can relate, letting them out of the stroller is like opening Pandora's box!
