This five-acre park located in the middle of Atlanta may seem like a far cry from the surrounding scene in Atlanta, but it offers a refreshing portal in history to a time when the South was undergoing transformation. This park holds the world’s largest piece of exposed granite, calling many adventure seekers out to witness and enjoy the landscape. For those not akin to hiking and exploring nature, there are many other activities including mini-golf, the Sky Hike (a series of bridges suspended among treetops), and a ride on a train straight from the 1940s era.

In true Atlanta fashion, this aquarium holds the distinction of being the largest aquarium in the world and one of Atlanta’s featured attractions. The Ocean Voyager, an overhead tank filled with whale sharks, manta rays, and schools of other fishes set this aquarium apart from others in originality and variety. One of the most exciting features of this underwater zoo is that it offers those daring enough the opportunity to get up close and personal with dolphins, sea otters, and even penguins. Kids of all ages point to this attraction as a local and national favorite.
