A day visit to Atlanta with Children

Staying in Athens during a course of 3 weeks for our son, we did a day tour to Athens for our Saturday. For sure, one day is never enough for such a huge city, so you may guess that our trip was to Centennial Olympic Park and the attractions around it.

Our first stop was CNN center, which already took a half day with tickets, waiting time and everything. It is a nice place to visit with children to see and get detailed information about broadcast life, to try to give a weather forecast news and to do some shopping of Hawks.

A second stop of the day was to sea world. However I should say that, if you already have been to a dozen of sea worlds, this sea world of Atlanta for sure is below average.

My best choice of sea world would be Oceanarium of Lisbon and second best is L’aquarium de Barcelona.

The fish tanks did not interest children much and together with crowd, which made it almost impossible to get close to windows of fish tanks, it just took about 30 minutes to go around. Thanks God we were with group and entered inside without waiting the very long queue outside. If we had waited for hours for tickets (like many people did) we really would be upset. Not worth to wait.

So we took our time off to wait for the other group members to come, at a bar not far away. Keep following for lunch around Centennial Park.
