Fun things to do in Atlanta (GA)

Atlanta played a major role both in the American Civil War and in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. As a consequence, it places great importance on educating and informing visitors of its local history. At the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, for instance, you can learn all about the famous movement’s history and its influence on civil rights around the world.

For a more lighthearted way to spend the afternoon, the World of Coca-Cola is the popular go-to destination. Here, you can learn about the soft drink’s history and through eye catching collections and insights into the production and marketing process. At the end, attraction goers can indulge in sampling over more than 100 Coca Cola varieties from all over the world.

Grab a coke and then watch some television. It’s a perfect match, especially in Atlanta as you can visit the CNN headquarters nearby. To fill you in on the off camera work that goes into news production, join a behind-the-scenes tour. These last about 50 minutes and if you’re lucky, you will even watch a live broadcast. To increase your chances of this happening, make sure to visit on a weekday between 10am and 3pm.

To put a spin on your day visit to Atlanta, secure a ticket for the Streetcar. This air-conditioned electric car takes visitors on a loop past attractions, such as aforementioned National Center of Civil and Human Rights, the College Football Hall of Fame and the popular King History District.

To reenergize after a long day exploring, make your way to the Central Food Hall at Ponce City Market.

Aside from grabbing lunch at the food hall, you can also attend events here on an almost daily basis.
