I went to the ocean with a few of my friends and it was really a beautiful day. The part of the sea that we saw was close to an area called Xin Hai square. Xin Hai square is a very famous place in Dalian and when you go there it is sort of a custom to run from one side of the giant open book sculpture to the other. There are other neat things to see around the square too like a fairground, a castle and of course the beach. You can even take a horse drawn carriage all the way around the giant square.
