Great place!

5/ 5

Whenever my family comes in from out of town, we do a family reunion at the aquarium. It is fun for all ages -from my 80 year old mother and my 3 year old nephew. I’ve heard of friends who have taken their kids to a sleepover event there. I need to look into it – I heard it is a blast!

Always a good time

5/ 5

Can’t tell you how many times I have taken friends, family and a boat load of kids to the GA Aquarium. It never gets old. Seeing the whale sharks and the other sea creatures in one tank is awe inspiring to say the least. Bid your time, move to the front and sit down as close as you can to the glass (well I think it’s acrylic, lol) and it will take you to another world. They have adult only date nights as well! Plenty of parking, many food choices and they don’t frown upon bringing in your own!
