Atlanta: The Sophisticated South

Atlanta is sometimes called the crown jewel of the South, thanks to its air of rich sophistication. The Georgia Aquarium can't be missed: This glass and steel architectural marvel is home to some of the sea's most intriguing creatures. The over 100,000 marine fish and mammals include whale sharks, penguins and sea otters. There is even an aquatic petting zoo! The World of Coca-Cola attraction has an interactive history of America's favorite beverage and is a hit with both kids and adults. Even a quick window shopping trip to the famed Peachtree street is fun, with these beautifully decorated streets and high end shops."
