Worth it

Atlanta CityPASS
So far we have been to Coca Cola, Fernbank Museum of Natural History and the Georgia Aquarium. Tomorrow is the Zoo and Civil Rights Museum. Using the pass is easy but plan your trips wisely. Some of the places have specific open days and varying hours since Covid.

Atlanta CityPASS
Very easy to use. I didn't have to schedule any appointment times, you just walk up to the box office and scan your tickets. My family enjoyed their time. We also did two activities in one day. I would use this again.

Getting the pass made visiting the atlanta attractions quick and easy. Just walkup to entrance and scan and off to the fun. It also saved us money instead of purchasing all of the tickets separately and having to make reservations to enter

It was a great weekend! The civil rights museum was the unexpected surprise of the weekend. Though heavy, it was absolutely amazing and powerful. We learned so much and feel so much more aware.

Atlanta CityPASS
As first-time visitors to Atlanta, having the CityPASS was wonderful as we visited just about every venue it was good for. We loved the convenience of showing our pre-paid tickets, skipping the lines onsite - and of course, there was a significant cost savings.

So much fun!! Definitely recommend doing this over buying individual tickets. We only did the 3 main sites but still worth every penny.
