Atlanta Day 2 - The Aquarium

Sunday, we had the day to do whatever we wanted. Atlanta is home to the world's largest aquarium, so we decided to go check it out. We decided to buy our tickets online so we could get in faster. While we were looking, we found a City Pass that would give us access to several cool things, so we decided to purchase it. In the end, we were able to us all most all of the coupons inside. 

The aquarium was amazing; which means I took a about a hundred pictures. Here are some of my favorites.

I loved the seahorses. 

Part of our pass included a ticket to the dolphin show. While standing in line, you could watch them in part of the tank.  

No pictures were allowed during the show, but I snapped this one before the show started. 

After the dolphin show we continued exploring the aquarium. Part of it was a large tunnel you walked through and watched everything swim above you. 

After the tunnel, you could stand and watch on the side of the large tank. 

The Beluga Whales

The otters were constantly moving, so it was hard to get a good picture of them. 


Watching the penguins.

They had a large pool where you could tough the sting rays. 

And another tank where you could touch star fish. 


The turtles were my other favorite thing. 

 And, of course, I couldn't leave until I bought a gift for all the nephews, included the one that is coming soon.  
 Preston & Tyler

 Valex & Daxsen

 For the new nephew

And I bought a turtle magnet and necklace for myself.

We've seen city passes in a lot of the cities we've visited, but we never stay long enough to make buying it worth it. This trip was the perfect opportunity for that! I also love the souvenirs you got at the aquarium!
