Georgia Aquarium

Until Singapore's SEA Aquarium opened, the Georgia Aquarium was the largest venue of its kind in the world. With more than 10 million gallons of saltwater and freshwater and more than 500 species on display, it is the biggest aquarium in the U.S., by far. The headlining inhabitants here are whale sharks (Georgia is home to the only non-wild whale sharks outside of Asia) and manta rays.
