THE BEST $26 YOU’LL SPEND IN ATLANTA

Georgia Aquarium

Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta ATLANTA, GEORGIA Georgia Aquarium, we dub thee the BEST AQUARIUM IN AMERICA. As well as the best $26 spent ever.

It’s officially the world’s largest aquarium. The viewing window in the Ocean Voyager exhibit is mind-boggling. As is the 100 foot long underwater tunnel (complete with moving walkway). The gigantic manta rays and whale sharks are incredibly majestic.

Even though it’s five years old, it continues to awe everyone with its oceanic wonders. Did you know that you can climb into the middle of the penguin exhibit and get face-to-face with the tuxedoed creatures? Tunnels leading under the exhibit end with pop up windows that let you peak into the faux Antarctic. Totally worth waiting in line for.

Beluga whales and seals? Check. Stingray petting zoo? Check. SLEEPOVERS? Check. I’m not sure about the next person, but if I got a chance to set a fluffy pillow next to the giant viewing window of the aquarium, it might be the best night of my life. It would also be only slightly amazing to sign up for the diving program that allows two-legged folks to swim in the Guinness World Record-setting fish bowl.

So thank you, owner of Home Depot, for donating your riches to this absolutely magical aquarium. Your $250 million was just as well spent as my $26.

  • Love this article, the photos and the aquarium! I will make it a point to get there whenever I go to Atlanta.

  • I am so fortunate to work a couple of blocks from the Aquarium and I must say that your review is spot on! Visitors may want to check out http://halfoffdepot.com for a package that sells for 50.00 and includes general admission to the Georgia Aquarium, a Behind the Scenes Tour, a ticket to Deepo’s Undersea 4D Wondershow, a ticket to Planet Shark: Predator or Prey, and a Parking Pass!

    This aquarium is awesome! I like the creepy Japanese spider crabs and the sea dragons too. This aquarium makes the Shedd in Chicago look like a goldfish bowl.
