When you arrive at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) from Indiana, the first thing you’ll want to do is find a rental car. The Atlanta metro area is very spread out but easy to navigate via Interstates 20, 75 and 85.
If you’ve got several hours of time to kill upon arrival in Atlanta, there’s plenty to keep you busy. Nature lovers simply have to head over to the Georgia Aquarium. This sprawling complex is home to more than 100,000 different animals belonging to 500 different species, including four beluga whales and 11 bottlenose dolphins. There are more than ten million gallons of water held throughout the various tanks, the largest of which holds 6.3 million gallons.
If that doesn’t hold your interest, you could visit the World of Coca-Cola, a museum that is dedicated to the ubiquitous carbonated beverage. It houses samples of the drink from all over the world, allowing you the chance to find out what Coca-Cola tastes like in other countries.
