We're interested in visiting an aquarium on our trip to the CA coast. We plan on visiting San Diego, Carlsbad, LA, Santa Monica, Santa Barbara, Pismo Beach, Big Sur, Monterey and San Francisco. End of June - early July. We won't be going to Sea World since we have been many times to the one in Orlando.
Which of these towns (or somewhere along the way) has the best aquarium? We'd like to visit something with some outdoor and indoor exhibits and maybe something unique that we haven't seen a million times at the New England and Mystic CT aquariums.
