An Awesome Weekend in Atlanta, Georgia

An Awesome Weekend in Atlanta, Georgia, Atlanta, Georgia (B)

Atlanta is a highly underrated city, in my opinion. It’s the perfect destination for a stress-free weekend getaway with a wide variety of activities for the whole family. Obviously, the Georgia Aquarium is the first thing to come to mind when thinking of Atlanta (and is not to be missed!), but that’s not all Atlanta has to offer!

I’ll be perfectly honest, though, by the time I reached Atlanta I was TIRED. We flew to Atlanta (for a conference for my husband’s job) right after our Peru adventure. I also needed to do a bunch of random not fun or blog-worthy things (like laundry – Blusion is a great laundromat, by the way. Haha. – and catching up on sleep), so I didn’t give Atlanta my all in terms of travel blogging (sorry). I do hope to return to Atlanta and give it another go, though, as I fell in love with the city and the incredibly kind people (seriously, Atlanta is giving the Midwest a run for its money in terms of friendly people).

The Georgia Aquarium is home to hundreds of thousands of animals. It was the largest aquarium in the world until 2012, that’s when it was surpassed by Marine Life Park in Singapore. But guys, they have whale sharks! (Which is the only place you can see them outside of Asia.) The whale sharks were rescued from Taiwan’s annual fishing kill quota, which means they would have been eaten if they had not been purchased by the aquarium. They were brought to the aquarium by air, truck and boat – craziness! AND, you can actually pay to swim with them! (Click here for more on that.) ......
