The largest aquarium south of Monterey, the Aquarium of the Pacific has over 11,000 living creatures, 19 major habitats and 32 focus exhibits. Its colony of Magellanic Penguins figures in "The L Word" TV series when Jenny Schecter, the bi-sexual protagonist, has a fling with a male marine scientist while researching the language of manatees. He suggests the penguins instead and off they go for a couple of episodes. The aquarium is a popular wedding venue for LGBTQ ceremonies, in front of the three-story Blue Cavern exhibit or an outdoor affair by the Shark Lagoon.
