2015 - Asheville/Atanta Day 7-9 (Atlanta, Georgia)

Today is aquarium day!
Breakfast at Country Inn & Suites Atlanta was similar to the other location but it is nicer and has actually silverware and plates instead of Styrofoam.

We ordered the early bird tickets where you could go to the aquarium at 9:00 am and we ended up spending about 3.5 hours there.  My two highlights was the dolphin tales show (when we went on Friday, we were told they have one at 11:00 am, one at 2:00 pm, and I think there is another after that) and the room where just sit and look at the whale sharks and stingrays swimming around.

Went to Legal Sea Food for lunch.  Ordered the crab cake and fried clams both were really good. Also got the Boston Cream Pie which was very delicious.

World of Coca-Cola was next.  Somehow spent 2.5 hours here.  Did all the exhibits, watched the 4D movie and waited for a picture with the bear.  At the end, you get to try all types of Coca-Cola drinks from around the world.  Personally, I didn't really like any of them, but that's okay.  It could also be that after about 10 samples, my tongue just couldn't differentiate tastes as well as at the beginning.  You get a bottle of coke on your way out which is a nice touch.

Dinner was at the food court at the CNN tower. Walked through the Centennial Olympic Park and it is nice although not a must go for me.

I was initially going to include another post, but since we didn't really do much besides driving back to Toronto, I decided that I will end our June roadtrip posts with this one.  Hope you enjoyed the trips and pictures as much as we did!  Until next trip!
