ATTRACTIONS — USA:
Georgia Aquarium — Atlanta


The Georgia Aquarium is proud to be the largest aquarium in the world and provides a fascinating, amusing and educational adventure that is suitable for the whole family. The Georgia Aquarium was introduced to the public in November 2005 and today is a major attraction for visitors to the Atlanta area.

Range of Underwater Life at the Georgia Aquarium

In a way, it is difficult to refer to the living creatures at the Georgia Aquarium as exhibits, as this sample of underwater life includes an incredible range of marine life to delight its visitors. The different sectors of the underwater world are separated into different exhibits such as cold water, rivers, and ocean. Just to mention a few members of the creatures featured, visitors will encounter turtles, whales, sharks, crabs, piranha, otters, jellyfish and sea horses on their journey through the aquarium and the various exhibits including delights like touch pools, a coral reef and a special kid's corner.

Special Features

One of the more unusual attractions at the Georgia Aquarium is the shark tank. Here, in addition to being able to view these incredible creatures, visitors with a certificate of SCUBA diving training may even dive with the sharks. Those who are not divers, or who prefer to remain dry, may view this impressive exhibit as they walk through an acrylic tunnel enabling visitors to feel almost as if they are inside this huge tank with over 6 million gallons of water. A massive range of different types of fish is presented in this massive exhibit including sharks, stingrays and a manta ray fondly named Nandi.

The Georgia Aquarium 4D Theater presents a fascinating experience with special effects for its audience. This involves a 3D film together with additional sensory effects in order to present a unique and exciting manner for participants to see and experience the underwater inhabitants and their lives.

It is interesting to note that in 2010, the Georgia Aquarium is planning to introduce the additional attraction of dolphins to water world.

Location

The Georgia Aquarium is located in downtown Atlanta and is easily accessible via public transportation. Visitors to the Georgia Aquarium are welcome 365 days a year, but it should be noted that opening times do vary at different times of the year. It is recommended to make reservations in advance and tickets may be purchased online.

The Georgia Aquarium is an exciting and interesting location and a great attraction for travellers to Atlanta.


Will in the World: How Shakespeare Became Shakespeare
Stephen Greenblatt
A young man without wealth, connections, or university education moves to London. In a remarkably short time he becomes the greatest playwright not just of his age but of all time. He recklessly mingles vulgar clowning and philosophical subtlety. How is such an achievement to be explained?

A Writer's World: Travels 1950-2000
Jan Morris
Some of the author's finest articles are brought together here. Age might now restrict her travels, but her memories of travel are a delight. Her wonderful descriptions evoke the spirit of so many places. For example, Delhi is: the capital of the losing streak, the metropolis of the crossed wire, the missing appointment, the puncture, the wrong number.
