Atlanta might not be a city on the coast, but it certainly brings the ocean to its residents and tourists alike through the Georgia Aquarium in the heart of downtown. The impressive facility is affordable, giving the option to purchase tickets online with discount prices (for example, early bird hours). Events like the Dolphin and Sea Lion shows are included with admission, and the interactive exhibits bear witness to conservation and environmental issues, bringing awareness to children and adult visitors alike. Additionally, the Georgia Aquarium itself is located in close proximity to Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park, the SkyView Ferris Wheel, and the World of Coca Cola Museum.
