Have you made your travel plans for 2018 yet? More importantly, is Atlanta on your list? Okay, it’s only the second day of the year, but it doesn’t hurt to start thinking about where you want to go. We may be biased, but we highly recommend Atlanta. Atlanta is a progressive, dynamic home to entertainment, food, and culture. It is booming with festivals and sporting events. It won’t be one of those vacations where you are bored by the third day. Sound intriguing?
When it comes to visiting a new city, it can be difficult to figure out what to do. We’re going to let you in on a little secret called CityPASS. The Atlanta CityPASS gives you admission to five of Atlanta’s best attractions. The best part? It saves you 40% and helps you skip ticket lines. You can use one pass for nine consecutive days making it perfect for vacation or even a staycation!
Over the past week, we used the Atlanta CityPASS to explore our city. We had a blast and learned so much! This week, we will be sharing how to make the most of your trip to each of the five attractions. Be sure to subscribe to our email list so you don’t miss a post!
The Atlanta CityPASS features:
- Georgia Aquarium – The Georgia Aquarium is ranked as the second best aquarium in the world, and the best in the United States. It contains over 10 million gallons of water and over 100,000 animals. It’s the only place where you can see a whale shark in the United States. Click here to “sea” the best of the Georgia Aquarium.
- World of Coca-Cola – Atlanta is home to Coca-Cola. With the CityPASS, you’ll get to learn more about the world’s most famous beverage brand. It’s a fun place for everyone! World of Coca-Cola also hosts the world famous tasting area where you can sample over 100 different beverages from around the world. You can read our full review of World of Coca-Cola here.
- Center for Civil and Human Rights – Atlanta played a vital role in the Civil Rights Movement. This museum is informative, impactful, and sends a powerful message to all visitors about the struggle to maintain basic human rights. It was our favorite attraction we visited using the Atlanta CityPASS. Click here to read about the four exhibits you cannot miss when visiting the Center for Civil and Human Rights.
- College Football Hall of Fame & Chick-fil-a Fan Experience – College football fan or not, you’re going to love this place. It is incredibly interactive. In this museum, you’ll have the chance to explore all aspects of the college football experience including tailgating, fight song singing, and skills drills. If you want to read about the best part of the College Football Hall of Fame, click here.
- CNN Studio Tour – Step inside the world headquarters of one of the most well-known news agencies in the world. The CNN Studio Tour allows you to see news studios and go behind-the-scenes to see where stories are made.
*Sidenote – Instead of the College Football Hall of Fame, you can visit the Fernbank Museum of Natural History. You can also choose between the Center for Civil and Human Rights or Zoo Atlanta. If you have children under 13, we recommend switching it up.
Using the Atlanta CityPASS, you’ll be able to see the best attractions, and save a ton of money doing it! Plus, they are available in many cities across the country. If you are headed somewhere in 2018, be sure to check and see if your destination has a CityPASS program.
The Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau provided us with two complimentary Atlanta City Passes to cover admission to the five attractions. We were not otherwise compensated for this review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.
