Experience Exciting Exhibits at Monterey Bay Aquarium

When you stay at BEST WESTERN PLUS Victorian Inn, you'll be less than a mile from world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium. There is no shortage of exhibits where you'll get to see a wide range of special sea creatures, such as the giant Pacific octopus, California sea lion, humpback whale, cownose eel, and wunderpus. Make sure to check out the live feedings of penguins, tuna, and turtles as well as the delightful daily shows like "Project White Shark," "Albatross Encounter," and "Luna: A Sea Otter's Story." And you'll get to dive deeper into the Aquarium via one of the information-rich tours.
