Memorable Vacation Tips

Guest post by Georgia Aquarium.

1. Engage them with education before your trip….at home!

  • Get your family excited about a trip by visiting the attraction’s website to explore activities that you can print out and do together.
  • Everybody loves coming to the Aquarium, but there’s a way to wiggle in education. Harness that excitement and put it towards a learning experience before you arrive. Kids Corner is a different way to approach the trip and make it a learning experience.

  • 2. Use tools to plan.

  • Build your experience beforehand to maximize your time at the attraction. Most attractions have an interactive webpage to help make planning your visit a seamless process. The Aquarium’s Plan Your Visit page helps you search the experiences the Aquarium has to offer and make ticket, parking and add-on program purchases.

  • 3. Take tips from tourism experts.

    Georgia Aquarium Insider Tips
    a. Pay for parking online ahead of time.

    b. Tuesday and Wednesday mornings are the least crowded times.

    c. Visit early or late in the day to avoid the busiest times.

    d.Plan your visit around free activities offered throughout the day.
    I. AT&T Dolphin Tales: choose your seats no later than 20 minutes before the show, the best seats in the house are at the top of the lower half section.

    II. Interactive Dive Shows : Tropical Diver and Ocean Voyager galleries have divers that answer visitors questions while underwater.

    III. Animal Feedings: Check out computer screens outside each gallery with daily feeding times for marquee animals.

    4. Have a hands-free experience.
    • Give your technology a break and live in the moment. You can still manage to capture the memories by taking fewer but more impactful photos.

    • Georgia Aquarium provides a beautiful backdrop for photos that are perfect to help your social network follow your trip!
      "One For the Grandparents": the Pacific Barrier Reef Window inside the Tropical Diver gallery has great lighting and livens up your photo with colorful fish.

      "Look Where I Am": Off Baker Street Entrance, just near the newspaper stand, you can capture the full Georgia Aquarium fa├žade.

      "The Perfect Silhouette": It is no surprise Ocean Voyager provides an artistic backdrop for a photo; many movies have chosen this gallery to feature in their films.

      "Just Another Fish in the Sea": Many of the exhibits feature windows where children can get up close and almost look as if they are inside with some of their favorite animals. Try making a scary face inside our Piranha exhibit in River Scout!

      "Bird’s Eye View": Make a pit stop after you exit Cold Water Quest, to capture the World’s Most Magical Aquarium from a second floor vantage point.

    5. Make the most of family time.

  • Break out the map - make the most of your visit by researching which "must-see" locations are close. Planning ahead will help minimize parking fees and reduce travel time.

  • Conveniently located in downtown Atlanta, Georgia Aquarium is the perfect starting point for a day filled with family fun. There are 6 hotels, 5 (soon to be7!) attractions and 17 restaurants all within a 12-minute walk from the front door of Georgia Aquarium.
