The Georgia Aquarium is billed as the largest aquarium in the world. Holding more than 8 million gallons of freshwater and saltwater, the Georgia Aquarium is home for aquatic species from around the world. Its unique building design allows visitors to move freely from the center of the building to five different galleries, including an interactive area for children. Linger in front of the observation window after walking through the "underwater" tunnel for a meditative view you won't soon forget.

World of Coca-Cola
The World of Coca-Cola was established in 1990 but was moved, refurbished and expanded in April 2007. The World of Coca-Cola is within a rock's throw from the Georgia Aquarium and a great way to escape Atlanta's heat if you're visiting in the summer. Inside, you can marvel at the 1880s antique soda fountain, learn the history of Coca-Cola, and see representations of Coca-Cola products from all around the world. Create your own artwork at the interactive kiosks before visiting the Coca-Cola theater for an exciting 4-D experience. Make your visit complete by watching a real-life bottling line produce your very own souvenir bottle of Coca-Cola that you get to keep.

Underground Atlanta began as a railroad freight depot back in 1836. Desolate and nearly vacant in the 1970s, Underground Atlanta closed in 1980 but reopened in 1989 after being placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, Underground Atlanta has been revived with more than six blocks of shopping, dining and live entertainment. With daily events and a guided history tour, Underground Atlanta is perfect for a quick excursion or wind-down after a busy day of touring Atlanta with dinner and live music at Kenny's Alley.
