Georgia aquarium

by BillDoc

I have a 4 hour layover in Atlanta in the next couple weeks. How can I take in the aquarium in the most efficient manner? Do I take a taxi from the airport directly there? How much is the taxi?....and how easy is it to get a taxi back?? Any thoughts appreciated!!! Bill

Re: Georgia aquarium

by TexasDave

I think you would be super rushed to try it within 4 hours, especially keeping in mind the time it takes to re-enter the airport through security. A taxi could take you anywhere from 15 - 30 minutes depending on the traffic, so the day and time of your visit are crucial in deciding if it's feasible. I don't know for a certainty the fare but I'm guessing around $20 one way. The MARTA train leave directly from the airport and only costs $2.75 one way but it will take close to 30 minutes to get near the aquarium due to the many stops it makes along the way. To do everything at the aquarium you would need about half a day. Getting a taxi back wouldn't be a problem since there are a few hotels close by, so if you can't flag one down on the street you will find one in front of one of them.

What Dave said....
Something that is probably more feasible and right next to the Aquarium is the world of Coke if that would interest you at all. That takes 2-3 hours to see it all. It could take all day to look at EVERYTHING in it but to do the theaters and such you could manage it in 2 hours which would give you time for transportation.

What day of the week are you going to be in Atlanta? I live next to the airport and enjoy helping out VT'ers when they are in town. I'm generally not occupied on the weekends so would be able to play "taxi". :-)

Now, if you are aware that you won't be able to see the whole aquarium in the time you would have and just want to check out one or two of the exhibits, the aquarium could be a very nice break from the airport for a couple of hours. But you definitely won't be able to take in the whole place in that time.

Travel Tips for Atlanta

Glass towers of Buckhead

by yooperprof

Atlanta has its own new shiny enclave of modernized prosperity, SUVs, national chain dining, glitzy shopping, and general conspicuous consumption. It's Buckhead, and it's the New South with a vengeance. Sometimes it feels like Dallas or Houston, sometimes it feels like Cleveland or Minneapolis - it's one of those new "edge cities" which modern sociologists study and which urban designers despair of. There's no there, there.

Some really bad public art...

by nudibranch

Some really bad public art near my house. Yes, this is an actual commissioned work of art and not an unfinished construction project. This is not representative of Atlanta in general, it just happens to be the only other picture I have scanned in.

Head North

by Smarr

Just look at the picture Directions from Atlanta, Georgia
Take I-20 west to Thornton Rd (exit 44)
Turn right on Thornton Rd (Hwy. 278)
Follow for about 20 minutes
Cross over hwy. 101 and rail road tracks
Go exactly 5.5 miles past rail road tracks
Turn right at the Airport sign (Airport Rd.)
(Airport Rd. is directly across the street from a Cowboys Convenience Store)
Airport Rd. forks immediately, stay left
ASC is 1/4 mile on the left

To each is own

by madmike13 about Buckhead

Buckhead is a part of town which is full of nightclubs. If you're into stuck up, gold diggin, slutty women. Or sleazy guys who spend more time in front of the mirror than the women, Buckhead is the place for you. However, if you are a little more classy, you might want to check out Virginia Highlands. It varies bar to bar, but to be safe, no hats, sneakers, or jerseys.

MARTA

by ehs1193

MARTA sucks! Imagine this: you're stuck with a token machine. It won't let you get a token. Therefore, you go to the kiosk. You complain about the token machine. The clerk says to a woman behind you, "Give this woman another dollar." You would be shocked. Right? It's fine if the woman is willing to give you another dollar, but you would be infuriated at the people who work here. What about that guy who was arrested for helping a man by giving him a token. How about this: the token machine is broken. You have your family with you. The kids are playing around, and you're worried about when the train is coming. The clerk takes so long to get a token for you the train already left. (This was in the Dunwoody and Sandy Springs station.) What's wrong with MARTA! Of course, I have to handle with this because I'm a native. One time, the train was being emptied for a reason I never learned. I waited over half an hour until the next one came. The trains are always late, or at least take excessively long. The stations are cleaner than the trains, which have graffiti. You might have to take a bus instead. It's a lot more useful to use the subway inside Atlanta, not in the suburbs. The stations further away from Atlanta are for families going on a trip or for people who are that dumb to book a hotel that far away. It doesn't get to the malls, which are mostly outside 285. (That's the big highway around Atlanta.) Instead of taking the long ride on MARTA from the north of Atlanta all the way down to the airport in the south, I'd rather drive. On the other hand, if you live near the East/West line you have to transfer at Five Points, the central station in the heart of Atlanta. Overall, MARTA is not my favorite.
