If you haven't yet visited the Aquarium of the Bay, now's the time.
Next Monday to Thursday, February 8-11th, San Mateo residents can get into the Aquarium of the Bay for free!
They offer the same deal for residents of Napa, Sonoma and Solano counties the week after, February 16-18.
And again, for Alameda county residents February 22-26th.
The Aquarium has a lot of fun exhibits, but is small enough to be manageable with young kids. They have two 300 foot tunnels to go through, so you'll be surrounded by sharks, anchovies, star fish and the likes. They have a touch area, with rays and sharks, and crafts too.
Tickets are normally $16 for adults and $8 for kids, so this is quite a deal!
