I think you pretty much hit the highlights.  Centennial, underground, WOC, and the aquarium will definitely fill up your trip.  The only other things would be restaurants for the evening which you really can’t go wrong with in downtown/midtown.  The Sundial is pretty cool at the top of the Westin.  It’s pretty pricey, but you can always go for just drinks and enjoy the view!

Atlantic Station is pretty cool for shopping and I love the Buckhead area for restaurants! If you like seafood I would recommend Atlanta Fish Market. It’s a little pricey but totally delicious and worth the money!

Eat! Atlanta is FULL of awesome restaurants. Bacchannalia, Abbatoir, Rathbun’s, Canoe and Bones are great, though on the pricey side. There are lots of affordable places in Midtown and Decatur. There are also TONS of ethnic restaurants in Buford Highway, so you can try a new type of cuisine you haven’t tried before (if you’re into that). 

I honestly wouldn’t bother with the underground or the world of coke and would instead do the Center for the Puppetry Arts and the botanial gardens. You can also do the High Museum. If you want to do something outdoorsy there’s also Stone Mountain and many hiking places nearby. Callaway Gardens is a couple of hours away and a honeymoon-y sort of place too. If you have time, there are also wineries in N. Georgia, only a couple of hours away, though I don’t know if they’re open in the winter. 

PM me if you want more suggestions!

There is also the Atlanta History Center if you’re into that! Very cool and not terribly expensive!

Definitely do drinks at the Westin. Go at dusk! Also, I agree with the other poster that said forget World of Coke and Underground. Botanical gardens would be much nicer! Also, there are a ton of shows (from the Atlanta Ballet to Laughing Skull for comedy) and you can get some fantastic groupons. Enjoy your trip!
