It is the highlight of Atlanta. Everyone loves coming here, tourist or local. After it's initial opening, it's finally come down to a reasonable pace and it's not as crowded. Lots of different rooms to explore and they keep adding more exhibits. The giant wall of glass is simply amazing.Recommended for:

This is the world's largest aquarium by gallons! Awesome. There were about six or seven exhibits and unfortunately, we weren't able to visit all of them because we arrived about an hour and a half before closing so try to get there early. For those who lag, the upside of going late is that they cut your entrance fee in half!
The most memorable part of the aquarium was probably the whale sharks swimming around and seeing them swim over you... that was pretty incredible. Their size and length is ridiculously huge and scary.
The otters were really cute too, as always. The aquarium is always a fun place with friends or family. I usually end up learning a lot from the visit. We took some really fun pictures in the dark too. I like the ones where you can pop your head into the penguin area and see them up close.
I also really liked the leafy sea dragons! They were probably my favorite sea creature!!! They were so cute and unique-looking.
I would definitely recommend this as a must-visit stop in Atlanta!Recommended for:

Set in the heart of Atlanta, the Georgia Aquarium is one of the most fantastic aquariums you'll ever see. At the start you'll be walking through a fantastic tunnel filled with schools of predatory trevally jacks, small and large stingrays, thousands of fish, and even sharks, all traveling overhead and all around you! And that's just the beginning! There are beluga whales, dolphins, and so many unique exhibits it really behouves you to just go see for yourself, a little pricey but well worth it. If I may make one more recommendation: take the "behind the scenes" tour if you can afford the time and money. You can see some really unforgettable things, like an upclose view of the famous whale shark the aquarium houses.Recommended for:

Georgia Aquarium is largest aquarium on the east coast. The best time is early in the morning before all the school kids get in. Disability Access is provide. Disability parking is with nearby parking garage with over 100 yards worth of walking to get to the front door. You will need about 3 to 4 hours to visit.Recommended for:

WOW. Absolutely blown away. This aquarium has it all: sharks, dolphins, stingrays, exotic fish, jellyfish, sea otters, you name it. Be prepared to spend at least 3-4 hours if you want to go through all of the exhibits! In one of them, there is an "underwater" tunnel that is great to snap a few pictures. Seriously had my breath taken away!
This is the largest aquarium in the United States, and one of the workers there mentioned the gallons of water stored (can't recall the exact number) and it was mind-boggling. But anyways, awesome awesome experience.Recommended for:

A really wonderful place regardless of your age, the aquarium is the largest in the word and boasts a 6.3million gallon tank which is the home to three whale sharks (amongst hundreds of other fish and sharks), there are opportunities available to swim or dive in here too so you can get even closer to the animals! There are several hands on areas too, one of which is filled with baby sting rays and nurse sharks.
Overall, the aquarium is a wonderful place, and you shouldn't go to Atlanta without visiting!Recommended for:

America's newest aquarium is a contemporary, state of the art facility in downtown Atlanta. Located near World of Coca Cola, countless restaurants, Centennial Park, and within walking distance of many hotels, Georgia Aquarium is a great place to spend a couple of hours. Of course, this is a MUST for children, but adults will like it too.Recommended for:

You can't visit Atlanta without a trip to the world's biggest aquarium! They've got whale sharks, dolphins, beluga whales, an octopus, and penguins--most other aquariums would have just one of these species as their main attraction. There's tons of interactive exhibits and shows for kids. I'd hit the Aquarium in the morning when it's quieter and then head over to the World of Coke which is right next door. They also take certified scuba divers on tours inside the big tank with the whale sharks--if you're certified. I wouldn't miss it!Recommended for:

This is a HUGE aquarium (The biggest in the world) Qith tons of things to to for hours.
When you walk in you see fish in a school swimming through a tank, and then you see the lively world of the Atlanta aquarium. 200 ft ceilings, 4 passageways to different huge attractions, and many more things to do.
This aquarium is great for kids and adults and it's a must see attraction if you are in the Atlanta area. Go today!Recommended for:

This was probably the best aquarium I've ever visited. The moving sidewalk that takes you through a 360 degree aquarium room was the best part. It's neat to look up and see sharks swim over your head. This is a must-see for families!Recommended for:

The most spectacular aquarium I have ever visited. Be prepared to be amazed by the giant crabs (as large as a refrigerator), glow in the dark seahorses, whale sharks and the gorgeous exhibits. Truly a special place.
