The Georgia Aquarium
Ending the tour of the shark tank is truly a breath-taking moment. You walk around the corner to a huge glass window with serene music playing in the background and all you can do is sit and stare in wonder and amazement.
With Jack being such a shark lover, I've come to learn a good deal about them myself the past few years. The whale shark, the largest fish in the sea, has to be my favorite.
The Georgia Aquarium has two on display!
Spending Sunday morning at the Georgia Aquarium was a real treat for both Jack and Mattie.
Mattie is not one to contain her excitement. She was screaming at the top of her lungs the whole time we were there about "fishies."
This was one of the cooler things we've seen at an aquarium. We've been to several, but had never seen these water snakes. They burrow themselves down into the sand and partially emerge. Not one was floating around; they were all poking out of the sand.
I know the Georgia Aquarium brags that it is the world's largest aquarium, but I couldn't tell much difference in the size of it versus aquariums in Chattanooga and Chicago. All three are huge and great places to explore.
