Exploring a vibrant city like Atlanta can be an exhilarating experience… as well as an exhausting one. One of the largest cities in the US South and the capital of Georgia, there are simply so many fun attractions to see here that it can be tricky knowing where to begin.
If you’re pressed for both ideas and time, I’ve got just the perfect solution: the Atlanta CityPASS. This convenient and cost-effective program allows you to explore the city’s top attractions without having to sweat the details and all with a single ticket that includes admissions at a significantly discounted rate.
Purchasing your CityPASS is for Atlanta straightforward enough, and can be done online or, if it’s easier, at some of the program’s participating attractions (be sure to check in advance for on-site purchase availability). Your pass is valid for a consecutive nine-day period, starting from the first day of use. Upon purchasing, you’ll receive your confirmation via e-mail along with digital copies of your pass (or passes). It’s that easy.
The Atlanta CityPASS Program: What’s Included
With your Atlanta CityPASS in hand (or, to be exact, on your phone), you’ll gain guaranteed admission access to the following top attractions:
Georgia Aquarium: One of the world’s largest aquariums, the Georgia Aquarium is home to an impressive array of marine life, from playful dolphins and graceful beluga whales to colorful reef fish.
World of Coca-Cola: You’ll learn all about the fascinating history of one of the world’s most iconic beverages, Coca-Cola, at this fun, family-friendly interactive museum. You’ll find out how the brand started, view a wide range of memorabilia, and even get to taste Coca-Cola products from around the globe.
Zoo Atlanta: An absolute treat for animal lovers, Zoo Atlanta is home to a diverse collection of wildlife, including giant pandas, gorillas, and a variety of other exotic species.
Wait, there’s more! You’ll also get to choose two further attractions, too, from the following:
Fernbank Museum of Natural History
Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame
National Center for Civil and Human Rights
The Atlanta CityPASS program offers numerous benefits for travelers, not least of which is the fact it’s cost-effective. In fact, purchasing a CityPASS is more economical than buying separate tickets for each attraction, potentially saving you up to 40% on combined admission costs.
It’s also flexible, giving you a nine-day validity period to explore Atlanta at your own pace, rather than feeling you’ll have to cram everything into a single day or weekend. You’ll also get skip-the-line access at these popular attractions, allowing you to bypass long lines and maximize your time for exploration.
The CityPASS also takes the hassle out of trip planning, streamlining the process and allowing you to focus instead on enjoying the experience.
