Atlanta highlights

  • Atlanta highlights
  • Atlanta History Center

    Revisit Atlanta's colorful past from the Civil War to Civil Rights and the 1996 Olympics. Located on 33 acres in Buckhead, this history-lovers' magnet also features folk art collection, and a tribute to American golf legend "Bobby" Jones, Jr. Stop by the Centennial Olympic Games Museum, Swan House and Tulle Smith Farm.

  • World of Coca-Cola

    In Atlanta travel, you’re often asked what kind of Coke you want -- that's the sway Coca-Cola holds in this town. Learn about the brand's history, and take an inside look at the bottling process. Bring your sweet tooth to the Taste It! Room -- you can sample as many of the 60-plus Coke products from around the world as you want.

  • Woodruff Arts Center

    This Midtown crown jewel includes the Alliance Theatre, High Museum of Art, Young Audiences 14th Street Playhouse, and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Check out the High Museum’s permanent collection of Southern self-taught and folk art -- including works by Rev. Howard Finster and Mattie Lou O’Kelley.

  • Piedmont Park

    This 189-acre park, abutting the Midtown and Virginia Highland neighborhoods, is home to beer gardens, bocce courts, an aquatic center and more. But with its abundance of green grass and shady trees, your best experience may be to do nothing at all.

  • Stone Mountain Park

    OK, it's the world’s largest piece of exposed granite, but that’s just one highlight in this 3,200-acre park. Even with cable car Summit Skyride, a Sky Hike adventure course, 4-D theater and scenic railroad, you’ve barely scratched the surface. And don’t miss the nighttime Lasershow Spectacular -- it’s an Atlanta tradition.

  • Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site

    Atlanta was central to the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s, with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. its most prominent leader. Learn more about Dr. King's legacy through a self-guided tour of Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, and a guided tour Dr. King’s birth home. Admission is free, and home tours are first-come, first-serve.

  • Georgia Aquarium

    Atlanta is a landlocked city, unless you count the 10 million gallons of water at the Georgia Aquarium, the world’s largest. Every part of the aquarium is interactive, from the walk-through shark tunnel to the exhibit housing whale sharks, the largest fish species in the world. (The lines are long, especially on weekends, so buy your tickets in advance.)

  • Fox Theatre

    You haven’t really experienced the Fox Theatre until you’ve stood under its vaulted ceiling aglitter in twinkling lights and Arabian-esque architecture. You can take a daytime tour, but the best way is with a show. The line up ranges from Broadway productions and the Atlanta Ballet to rock concerts and film screenings.

  • Fernbank Museum of Natural History

    Come face to face with the world's largest dinosaurs at Giants of the Mesozoic, a renowned collection of cast fossil replicas. This family-friendly museum features exhibits that appeal to all ages – including Martinis & IMAX on Fridays night from January to November.

  • Centennial Olympic Park

    Walk in the footsteps of Olympians who competed here in the 1996 Summer Olympics. Bring your tykes (and bathing suits) to the Fountain of Rings, an interactive fountain with four free daily shows. Stop by Googie Burger for lunch, then head to the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coca-Cola nearby.
