The Aquarium of the Pacific, one of the largest aquariums in the United States, is located at the end of the harbor. If you want to see what The Pike was like in its heyday, visit Loof's Lite-A-Line-a museum that features some of The Pike's original game tables-and a car from the famous roller coaster, the Cyclone Racer. One of the city's most popular attractions, the Queen Mary, gives guests an idea of what it was like to travel aboard a luxury liner.
