You don’t have to travel across the Southern Hemisphere to discover the unmistakable charm of the world’s most curious bird — the penguin. At the Aquarium of the Pacific, you can see these charming creatures up-close. Since 2012, the June Keyes Penguin Habitat provides a lively space for over a dozen Magellanic Penguins, where you can observe these stylishly dapper and agile swimmers from more angles than you’d expect.

Of course the other exhibits at the Aquarium will delight you too, but you will surely find that the penguins’ antics will demonstrate many surprisingly human-like personalities and leave you with some of the most lasting memories from your visit. As you watch, you’ll likely realize that your mind has drifted away, into the penguins’ unique world. It’s easy to get lost with the flock living in their idyllic bay-like setting, complete with a rocky reef, sandy beach, and full-penguin action.

Check out the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach and visit the penguins. You’ll be glad you did. Kate, Ludwig, and Noodles are looking forward to seeing you, too.

This destination was chosen byMercedes-Benz of Encino in Los Angeles to stimulate your mind with fresh ideas of adventure. To find out more, we suggest browsing the Penguin Exhibit pages provided by the Long Beach Aquarium website.

Making the drive to the Long Beach Aquarium in your own Mercedes-Benz would certainly enhance this uniquely L.A. experience.  But, just imagine how satisfying it would be with all your family and neighbor friends riding in the comfort and luxury of a Full-Sized 2013 Mercedes-Benz SUV.
