The Georgia Aquarium attained national prominence before it was even completed in downtown Atlanta. The largest underwater attraction in the United States is considered one of the best animal attractions in the country by a prominent national family-based magazine.

FamilyFun ranks Georgia Aquarium No. 4 on the magazine’s list of “Top 10 Animal Attractions.” Animal attractions eligible for consideration are zoos, aquariums, and wild animal theme parks.

FamilyFun’s annual travel survey, presented with Go RVing, includes the responses of 2,000 families asked to rate hundreds of popular spots across the country in five categories, the magazine says.
