You may be surprised to see Atlanta
, on this list, but this Southern city has a lot to offer. For starters, it is home to the Georgia Aquarium – the largest aquarium in the country – where you can see 500 different species of marine life, including otters, dolphins, whales, sharks and even the behemoth whale shark and giant manta rays. From here, walk across the street to the World of Coca-Cola, where you can learn about the history of the famous beverage and even sample dozens of varieties. If your child is interested in journalism, plan to see the CNN Center, the media outlet’s headquarters where you can get a behind-the-scenes look at how the news gets to the world.
