I have had the pleasure of visiting several of these places and they did not disappoint. So with no further ado, here are the ten places to visit in Atlanta with your family!

Georgia Aquarium: A few months ago we enjoyed an amazing and unforgettable trip to the Georgia Aquarium. I highly suggest dedicating your entire day to visiting the aquarium because there is so much to see. The building in broken up into exhibits, which makes it very easy to explore. There is also a dolphin show that you absolutely have to see, this way by far our favorite part of the trip. An attached parking garage, plus a food court located in the aquarium makes it simple for a family to spend the whole day enjoying this great attraction.
