Visit the Georgia Aquarium {Tickets Giveaway!}

by Amy on 12 June 2014

Georgia Aquarium - Fearless Baby in awe!This giveaway is now CLOSED + the winner was selected using Congratulations to commenter #36, Ally – I’ll email you with details! aquarium-winner

I am a HUGE fan of aquariums. As a Boston-raised child, the New England Aquarium was one of my favorite places to visit, and as I have grown up, I’ve continued to enjoy exploring aquariums all over the country. So, when the folks at the Georgia Aquarium invited me, my husband, and Fearless Baby to come visit, I was SO excited. So, we loaded up the car and headed down to Atlanta (Baby’s first roadtrip!) to check it out. And y’all, this is an AMAZING aquarium – I’m so excited to share some of the highlights of our visit. The above picture of Fearless Baby was taken while she stared in utter awe at the creatures swimming in front of her. Neat, huh?!

Probably the most talked-about creatures at the Aquarium are the breathtaking whale sharks. We were lucky enough to get a Behind The Scenes Tour where we got to see them from the top of the Ocean Voyager exhibit – they are truly awe-inspiring, and no pictures can capture how amazingly huge they are. I could’ve watched them swim for hours.

Georgia Aquarium - whale sharkSONY DSCI also loved watching the beluga whales. Again, we had the cool privilege of seeing them from both the normal exhibit point-of-view, and from the top of their tanks during the Behind The Scenes tour. They seemed so carefree and sociable – I loved ’em!
Georgia Aquarium - belugasGeorgia Aquarium- belugas from aboveWe toured pretty much all the exhibits (I loved how stroller-friendly everything was!) and saw gorgeous seahorses/seadragons, manta rays, penguins, friendly sea otters, sand sharks, thousands of fish, coral, and more! Here are some pics of my favorite creatures + exhibits.

Lovely post! My kids love the penguins and seahorses.

14 Linda West-Mottern June 13, 2014 at 1:14 am

Would. Love to see the whale sharks.also the penquins. There is nothing like a visit to a aquarium for relaxation and excitement combined in one day. Living far from the ocean I have a great curiosity regarding water creatures.

15 patricia June 13, 2014 at 6:59 am

I am most excited to see the dolphins! I’ve heard great things about the A T & T Dolphin Tales show.

Wish I lived closer! What a wonderful trip! I loved the aquarium as a little girl and I look forward to taking Lucy to visit on in the near near future!

18 Sara June 13, 2014 at 8:18 pm

What a great give away! I have been to the aquarium but haven’t taken my little one yet. I want to see the penguins, but I think he will be most amazed by the tunnel under the Ocean Voyager tank. Can’t wait to take him!

I has been ten years since I took my kids to the aquarium in GA. We live close enough to drive over from SC. It was so crowded ten years ago when it first opened. I would love to go back now that it has been there a decade and see the fish up close! Thank you for the entry opportunity!

We keep wanting to go to the Aquarium, but it just hasn’t worked out yet. I think my kids would most enjoy seeing the penguins and the sharks.
