Well, it's hot and humid! Rode the MARTA from airport. Very abandoned area South of downtown. Only business still up are surrounded by razorwire.

Apparently Trump was in town earlier today and LE and protesters are freaking everywhere.

SWMBO grew up in Juneau and then the PNW. I am giggling at her jaw dropping every time we walk around a corner. Small town girl in the big city..

Never been to Sea-Tac area, but aren't those fairly large cities?
They are. We avoid them. Trips to Seahawks or Mariners games. The occasional dinner. But never out wandering about through downtown.

We live in a town of 15k and think it's gotten overcrowded.

PB, you will need to put the aquarium on your list. Walking through a glass tunnel with 3 large whale sharks swimming overhead is almost surreal.

The Botanical gardens are very cool as well.

Hoping to head to Stone Mt. tomorrow!

Oh..........I am an aquarium geek, and I have visited EVERY major aquarium in the US so you have to take that into account but............the aquarium........yep.
So how do you rate Monterey Bay against the others you have seen? Been there, the Shed and Boston, but no others. I thought Monterey was the best of those three.

It's visually way cool. A central continuous circular ramp going up with displays all the way around. You look over the railing down into center, and the ground floor is a huge tank with sharks and rays swimming around. You get to the top and go through a pair of doors into a rooftop rainforest with spiders, birds, frogs, salamanders, and plants. Hugely cool!
