Atlanta is Georgia’s capital city and the largest metropolitan area in the Southeast, US, as well. A visit to Atlanta offers many options, regardless of your interests. Downtown Atlanta is home to the world’s largest aquarium. Here you’ll find lots of ocean creatures, like whale sharks and peaceful Beluga whales, but you’ll also find exhibits describing the marine life local to the state of Georgia. This popular attraction is located right next to the World of Coke, where you can taste more than 70 varieties of soft drinks marketed throughout the world. Step across the street and you’re in beautiful Centennial Olympic Park, a beautiful green space created for the 1996 Olympics right in the heart of downtown. Sports enthusiasts are entertained year round in Atlanta, since it is home to professional baseball, football, hockey and basketball teams.
