georgiaaquarium3If you’re looking for discount tickets to the Georgia Aquarium, you’re in luck, as you’ve got a few ways to get in free or on the cheap, no coupon code required:

  • While they last, $57.50 buys two Total Ticket admissions to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, thanks to a deal on Groupon. The Groupon is valid for admission through March 20, 2015; limit five Groupons per person & five more as gifts.
  • Through April 2, 2015, you can take advantage of the Me & Mommy deal at the Georgia Aquarium–the deal includes dads, grandparents and caregivers, too. For $39.95 plus tax, you’ll get one adult Total Ticket and up to four children’s Total Tickets (ages 5 and under). The deal is valid Monday to Thursday only, and it can be purchased online or at the door.
  • I’m going to check this out: From 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. on Friday, January 23, 2015, you can indulge with Sips Under the Sea at the Georgia Aquarium. Sips Under the Sea is a 21+ event, giving you a kid-free way to explore the aquarium. General admission is free for members & $21.95 for nonmembers. VIP tickets, which include 2 drink tickets & 2 tapas plates, are $24.95 for members & $46.95 for nonmembers.
  • For a limited time, you can take advantage of an Early Bird online discount & save up to $7 per ticket. To get the deal, purchase tickets online and select and arrive during the first hour of the day. This, by the way, is an excellent way to experience the Georgia Aquarium without fighting the crowds.
  • If you’re planning to visit multiple attractions in Atlanta, take advantage of the Atlanta CityPASS to save almost 50% on admission to five Atlanta-area attractions. Beginning March 1, 2015, the Atlanta CityPASS covers admission to The Georgia Aquarium, the World of Coca-Cola, the Inside CNN Studio Tour, Fernbank Museum of Natural History (includes IMAX, too) OR the Center for Civil & Human Rights, and Zoo Atlanta (includes All-Rides Wristband) OR the College Football Hall of Fame. It’s valid for nine days, and if you plan it right, you’ll have two full weekends + the weekdays in between to get to all of the attractions. FYI–Though you can’t start redeeming the tickets until March 1, you can buy the new Atlanta CityPASS now.
  • While they last, you can still purchase the 2014 Atlanta CityPASS, but you must start using it before February 28, 2015. It includes admission to The Georgia Aquarium, the World of Coca-Cola, the Inside CNN Studio Tour, Fernbank Museum of Natural History (includes IMAX, too) OR the High Museum of Art, and Zoo Atlanta (includes All-Rides Wristband) OR the Atlanta History Center.
  • If you bring your ID or a copy of your birth certificate, you’ll get a free Total Ticket to the Georgia Aquarium on your birthday.
  • You can save a bit on Georgia Aquarium tickets or annual pass purchases, thanks to an offer from Gas South.

And I enjoy wandering around Atlanta to see this:

Dolphins on Parade is a public art project featuring more than 50 fiberglass dolphin statues with unique designs. You’ll find Dolphins on Parade in several parts of Atlanta, including Centennial Olympic Park area, Pemberton Place, Downtown, Midtown and Buckhead. Check out the map to plan your route & see them all.

The Georgia Aquarium is located at 225 Baker St. NW, Atlanta. 404-581-4000.
