Atlanta is a beautiful city, and is the capital of Georgia State. It is a major business center and is equally famous for tourism. Atlanta is 4 hours drive from Charlotte, North Carolina. We had decided to explore Atlanta on Martin Luther King long weekend in Jan 2009.
Georgia Aquarium was the first place on our List. Georgia Aquarium was opened to the public on November 23, 2005. It claims to be the world’s largest indoor aquarium. Georgia Aquarium features more animals than any other aquarium in more than eight million gallons of water. You will love every minute you spend in the aquarium. The White Beluga Whales, Giant Whale Sharks, tiny garden eels, lovely Pacific Sea Nettles will make you fall in love with under water creatures.
The aquarium is divided into different sections – Georgia Explorer, River Scout, Cold Water Quest, Ocean Voyager, Tropical Diver and so on. You also get to see Deepo’s UnderSea 3D WonderShow at the 4D Theater but you need to pay extra for that.
There is also a special Behind the Scenes Tour which requires a separate ticket.
Titanic Aquatic is a new exhibition which again requires a separate ticket. It brings to life the story of the fated Titanic through authentic artifacts and hands-on interactive experiences. Titanic Aquatic includes a vast collection of more than 190 artifacts recovered from Titanic’s debris field including 40 that have never been seen before.
The visit to Georgia Aquarium was absolutely entertaining and fascinating. It was a good educational experience for us. You can spend an entire day in the aquarium viewing the amazing varieties of the Under Water World.
Here are some snaps from our Trip. Enjoy!!! 🙂
