Only in Atlanta ...


  • Can you see the largest fish through the largest window in the largest aquarium at the Georgia Aquarium, where you can see tens of thousands of animals in more than 8 million gallons of water. The World of Coca-Cola is next to the aquarium where you will experience the story of the famous soft drink. Atlanta is home to the NFL Falcons, NBA Hawks and MLB Braves professional sports teams; all with facilities downtown so it’s game time all the time. 
  • Can you get lost on Peachtree Street and end up on Peachtree Street with more than 100 streets that incorporated the name "Peachtree." 
  • Hike 1.3 miles to the top of Stone Mountain, Georgia's most-visited attraction, and have a panoramic view of the entire city.
