Georgia Aquarium is the world's most magical aquarium. Situated near Centennial Olympic Park and World of Coca-Cola in downtown Atlanta,Georgia, Georgia Aquarium offers its guests an experience like no other. Across six separate galleries, with more than 70 amazing habitats, 10 million gallons of water and thousands of species of marine animals, guests will marvel at, learn about and come to better understand such majestic aquatic animals as whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins, beluga whales, sea otters, African penguins and thousands of species of exotic fish and other animals. The spectacular AT&T Dolphin Tales show combines incredible natural animal behaviors with dynamic theatrics, a Broadway-inspired musical score and a compelling story, which together underscore the connection between humans and the animal world. The animated "Deepo's Undersea 3D Wondershow," for all ages, tells an entertaining but important story about conserving and protecting animals and their natural environment. Cafe Aquaria offers delicious sandwiches, salads, pizza, pasta and delectable desserts. Two gift shops give visitors the chance to take home a treasured collectible. Special animal encounter programs offer the chance to go behind the scenes and come face-to-face with dolphins, sea otters and penguins. Guests can even swim or dive with whale sharks and manta rays in the world's largest aquarium habitat (at 6.3 Million gallons), Ocean Voyager built by the Home Depot. And an onsite parking deck immediately adjacent to the aquarium means quick, easy-to-find and affordable parking.

It's hard to summarize in prose just how incredible the exhibits are at this aquarium. Do I start with the whales? The enormous groupers in the salt water tank with the whale shark? The sea turtles? the gigantic starfish and octopi? Maybe the sea lion...More

Our family stayed at the Hyatt Place on Peachtree to sleep 5 people and for free breakfast. That hotel and others provide a free shuttle to area attractions, including the Aquarium.

Either first thing in the morning or late in the evening. They have discounted admission if you go during one of these times since it tends to be less busy.

Personally it is worth every penny. If you are going on Saturday or Sunday, morning (i.e around the time it opens at 9 AM) is the best time to avoid crowd. If you are going during the week, I would think noon might be better... More
