The fish were incredible, the architecture was cool, the exhibitions and staging were top notch, and perhaps most important was the fact that their staff was friendly and accommodating. Talk about southern hospitality, these people actually seemed to care whether or not you enjoyed your visit. Excellent customer service, a truly rare find these days.
If you are ever anywhere near Atlanta, be sure to go to the Aquarium. The visit is well worth the steep admission price. Just make sure to buy your tickets ahead of time, and if it all possible have them sent to you beforehand, rather than held at the will call window. The wait for general admission tickets for anyone buying at the door last Friday was over 3 1/2 hours long, with a line snaking around the building and down the street. Plan ahead and save yourself the wait, but don't miss the fish. The Georgia Aquarium is definitely on my must-see list.
