Wanna surprise my wife for her birthday. She loves aquariums.
Plan is to fly from LGA-ATL  on BA or SW, aquarium and coke museum, early dinner at Fuego Mundo and head home that night.
Feasible or too ambitious?

Sounds good to me! Though you may end up either skipping Coke museum or just ordering dinner to go. Either way I'd say gk for it.

Toco Hills will be closest.  Milchigs - Broadway Cafe; Fleishigs - Pita Palace.  Both are on the corner of Briarcliff Rd and Lavista Rd.  Also there is Chai Peking in the Toco Hills Kroger. Of the three, ambiance-wise, Broadway is your best choice.

if i land at 11:15 and takeoff again at 7:40, do you think that's enough time or too rushed?

I would have to drop car off but no luggage and check in online, so figure hour and half?

IMO, not enough time.  The aquarium and eating will take up all of the time (without some serious rushing).  Also, is the Duck tour open year-round?

I guess i shouldn't get too ambitious. The main point of the trip is the aquarium. It sounds like atlanta has a lot to do and I definitely have to go back when I have more time.
So with aquarium and dinner (and maybe maybe coke factory  ;) ) 7:40 should be ok?

So 6?  I would leave Toco Hills at 5.  It is only a 25 minute drive, but you never know with rush hour in Atl.  You would be heading in to downtown, so it should be alright, but you never know.  What about lunch at Fuego Mundo and then the aquarium afterwards?  This would put you much closer to the airport.  Not sure when the aquarium closes, though.

interesting idea but aquarium is only open until 5 so I'll end up sitting in airport for a while.

So I'm thinking breakfast in NY, aquarium, early supper and then home.  :)

Thanks for all your help!!
