Our family was recently looking for a new city to explore for a long weekend get away and found just what we needed in Atlanta, Georgia. With the hustle and bustle of daily life, taking a family vacation is something I look forward to. The planning maybe not so much. Endless hours of trying to pick the perfect location, the right itinerary and the most cost efficient ways to have fun. Atlanta makes it easy for you with the Official Atlanta CityPASS.
How much money do you save with CityPASS?
The CityPASS saves you about 40% on area attractions and can be purchased online, $76 for adults and $61 for kids.
Each pass includes:
– Georgia Aquarium
– World of Coca-Cola
– CNN Studio Tour
– Zoo Atlanta OR Center for Civil and Human Rights
– Fernbank Museum of Natural History OR College Football Hall of Fame
This little booklet of savings was amazing on so many levels. First, it help me plan our itinerary as it covers almost all of the downtown attractions as well as the City Zoo. Second, not only did we save money on tickets but it also offers 10% off at the attraction gift shops. Third, and perhaps my favorite thing about the CityPASS was we saved time! For example, having these little booklets we saved over an hour of our time not having to wait in line to enter the aquarium. I have 2 boys, 10 and 7 and neither do well in lines. Honestly, neither does my husband. So it was a win, win, win and mommy didn’t loose her mind!
Attractions apart of the Atlanta CityPass
World of Coca-Cola
Some of our favorite attractions were the World of Coca-Cola museum and the Georgia Aquarium. The World of Coca-Cola was so fun. It was very nostalgic and will give you “the feels”. If you plan to go this summer, you have a refreshing coke waiting for you upon arrival into the attraction. It was delish! Make sure to visit the tasting room with over 100 different coke flavors from around the world, the South America pineapple flavor was our favorite.
We’ve been to a few aquariums and they are typically somewhat similar. However, after reading reviews and talking to some friends I added Georgia Aquarium to our itinerary and we were not disappointed. It was truly amazing. We spent a lot of time in the Ocean Voyager exhibit hanging out with the whale sharks. And I highly recommend the dolphin show. Just get in line early so you can get a seat above the splash zone. Especially if you plan to keep walking through the aquarium after the show. You WILL get wet! The entire facility was awesome. We were truly amazed and we highly recommend for all ages.
The Atlanta Zoo
The Atlanta Zoo is one of the best in the country and it is important to note that they are one of the few zoos that have Giant Pandas. Make sure you check out all the other activities Atlanta has to offer such as The CNN HQ tours, Center for Civil and Human Rights, The Children’s museum and don’t forget to ,make plans to see the Atlanta Braves! We went to a Braves game and the new SunTrust park is like a mini village complete with a theatre, restaurants and hotels.
Three days in Atalanta wasn’t enough time to see everything there is to see and do, so we will definitely be back to finish where we left off!
