WINNER: 2020 top tourist attraction

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is committed to continuing our normal features, where appropriate, during the coronavirus outbreak. For full coverage of the outbreak in Atlanta, please check our Coronavirus News Section. We have decided to continue Best of Atlanta voting for the time being, despite social distancing. We encourage our readers to support local businesses after the authorities loosen the social distancing rules — along with supporting those businesses that offer delivery or pickup during the outbreak.

People visit metro Atlanta to attend professional sporting events and Broadway shows.

The metro area is a great place to visit. It is home to the world’s largest aquarium and the World of Coca-Cola. We have amusement parks and natural parks.

But when you have visitors and want to entertain them, which tourist attraction is a must-see?                                              Here’s how you voted:

Tied for fifth were Six Flags Over Georgia, World of Coca-Cola and Zoo Atlanta.

Tied for third place were the National Center for Civil and Human Rights and Stone Mountain Park.

All alone in second place was Piedmont Park, site of art and music festivals, in addition to being the gathering spot for AJC Peachtree Road Race participants.

The winner, with nearly half the votes, was once again the Georgia Aquarium. It seems your friends and relatives can't get enough of Atlanta's aquatic residents, from beluga whales to California sea lions.
