Our friend H2 is sharing with us some fun places to take the kids in Atlanta.
The main attraction in Atlanta is the Georgia Aquarium, the largest aquarium in the country. It contains the largest tank in the world. There are whale sharks, beluga whales, California sea lions, sea otters, and penguins. There's an interactive gallery with touch pools where you can touch the horseshoe crabs, sea stars, stingrays, and shrimp. There's also a large kids' playground at the aquarium and Deepo's Undersea 3D Wondershow, a 3-D movie about a fish who takes the audience on an underwater adventure.
Imagine It! The Children's Museum of Atlanta
Here, your child can operate a fork lift or fill a cart in the grocery store. There's a Crawl Space for toddlers to roam. There's also a waterplay area. Your child can paint on the wall, build a sand sculpture, or dress up in a costume. Check out the puppet shows, storytime, and puzzles.
Atlanta Fulton County Zoo
The Atlanta Zoo is very nice. You will find all kinds of animals, including a Giant panda exhibit. Take a peek at the Panda Cam. Also, check out the petting zoo with goats, pigs, and sheep.
The Atlanta Cyclorama
This is H2's dad's favorite place to go, with a 360-degree mural about the Civil War, with rotating seats and commentary in 5 different languages. You will also find the locomotive Texas, as well as many Civil War artifacts, weapons, photographs, and uniforms.
Six Flags over Georgia
This giant amusement park is about 15 miles west of Atlanta. You will find thrill rides, family rides, and kids rides. You can travel with Thomas around the Island of Sodor on a fun train ride and meet Sir Topham Hatt. Don't miss getting your picture taken with the Batmobile! There's storytime with Bugs Bunny, and you can also meet Looney Tunes characters throughout the park.
World of Coca-Cola
You'll find the world's largest collection of Coke memorabilia, a bottling line producing 8-oz bottles of Coke, and a tasting experience with over 60 different flavors from around the world. H2's favorite flavor is Lychee. Also, check out the 4-D theater which shows a 3D movie with moving seats.
