Guide Review of The Georgia Aquarium:
A trip to The Georgia Aquarium should be on everyone's list - whether you're an Atlanta native or just visiting. The massive tanks mean there is always a chance to discover something new every time you visit. From spindly crabs that can grow to the size of small cars to popping your head in to the habitat of playful penguins tanks to a tank surrounding you as stingrays swim above your head, the Aquarium is a magical world with endless variety of aquatic creatures.
Winding through the interesting habitats to create different atmospheres - an area celebrating native Georgia species with a touch tank and a fun playground, an arctic environment, a river habitat with entertaining otters and the beautiful tropical tanks.
To truly enjoy all the Aquarium has to offer, I'd recommend avoiding weekends and holidays, which is, of course, pretty hard to do. If you are planning to go during peak hours or weekends, remember that you should go online before your visit and reserve a time slot. Even with a reservation you may have a short wait time, but without one you may never make it in.
