Tour Atlanta with the City Pass.

We’ve already introduced Atlanta on the blog in writing, so now we’re taking a video tour of this famous southern city. Check out some of the city’s most famous attractions in this short video.

“Atlanta is the capital of the southern state of Georgia. Our tour begins with a walk through Centennial Olympic Park. The city hosted the Summer Olympic Games back in 1996.

Visitors to Atlanta may want to pick up a City Pass, which grants you admission into five different places of interest. Included on the list is the World of Coca-Cola, a museum dedicated to the world-famous company. The tour starts by seeing a collection of Coca-Cola ads from all over the world. You can also take a photo with the polar bear mascot. Moving on, there’s lots more Coke memorabilia to see. In the Milestones of Refreshment exhibit, you can learn about the history of the company. Next, at Bottle Works, you can see how Coca-Cola is made and bottled. In The Vault of the Secret Formula, the recipe for the famous drink is supposedly stored. You can’t see it, but there are plenty of fun, interactive things to do. Finally, you can sample Coca-Cola drinks from all over the world.

Our next stop is the Georgia Aquarium. This is the largest aquarium in the western hemisphere and was the largest in the world until the one in Singapore surpassed it. There are tens of thousands of fish and other sea creatures here. Some are big, some are creepy, and some are just weird. You’ll see turtles, beluga whales, penguins, sea otters, octopus, and Japanese spider crabs. The highlight just might be the Ocean Voyager tunnel, which has over 6 million gallons of water and thousands of fish. Here you’ll see plenty of manta rays, and also a variety of sharks. This is the only institution outside of Asia that has whale sharks. There’s lots more to see here, including a bunch of different kinds of jellyfish. An afternoon at the aquarium is great, especially on a hot summer day in Atlanta.

You can also take a tour of CNN, the Cable News Network. Walking tours of the studios last almost an hour and leave every ten minutes. You’ll see live broadcasts going on, and get a glimpse into what it’s like in a real newsroom.

Finally, we visit the National Center for Civil and Human Rights. This museum is dedicated to the achievements of the civil rights movement in the United States, along with other human rights movements around the world. There are permanent and temporary exhibitions here, so check the website to see what’s going on. There’s more to see in Atlanta, but we’re out of time for now!”
