World of Coke and Georgia Aquarium

Matt and I drove down to Atlanta late Friday night so that we could spend Saturday seeing some of the attractions here, namely the World of Coke and the Georgia Aquarium. They were both pretty amazing!

I remember going to the World of Coke back in the day, when the tasting room shot streams of coke over your head into your cup. Pretty cool. This is what it looks like now. If you go, don't try the Beverly. It's disgusting.

They've remodeled the whole museum so it's more free flow. You can go and see the things you want instead of going through everything in a set order (like before). I have always had a love affair with Coke and it was great to share that with Matt. :)

The aquarium was amazing! It was a "pick and chose the exhibits you want to see" kind of museum. My choices were based on which exhibit looked like it was the least crowded. I think my favorite exhibit was the one with the whale sharks. They were really neat to see!

They also had a glass tunnel that went through the middle of the tank at the bottom, so you were able to see the fish swim right by your head! We got some pretty amazing pictures from this exhibit!
I love that you can see Matt's Marvel comic's t-shirt in the reflection of the glass.

That's a lot of teeth!!

My other favorite exhibit was the one with touch tanks were you could touch sting rays and sharks! Sting rays, by the way, are slimy feeling. :) Here are the rest of my favorite photos from the day!

If you are ever in the Atlanta area, you should definitely hit up both of these places (although doing both in one day is not for the faint of heart... especially on a Saturday!) We both enjoyed spending time with one another and I loved sharing a part of my city with Matt.

P.S. - I had such a hard time narrowing down the pictures for this post! We had *so* many from the aquarium that were just amazing! If you want to see all of our pictures, head over to our gallery on smugmug!

  1. I saw that aquarium on the Today show a few weeks ago, that so crazy. I believe they said it's the only aquarium in the US with a whale shark.
