Fun Things to do Around Atlanta

Atlanta is a fun place to visit, and there are many things that someone traveling there could do. I went there this past August and had a lot of fun. There are many nice restaurants to go downtown and many hotel options. One restaurant I would try to put on your agenda would be the Hard Rock. It had a great atmosphere with good food and drinks.

If you ever find yourself in the area you should definitely check out the World of Coke. You start by taking a tour and watching a short video about Coca-Cola. Then you are able to go into different areas to learn about the history of Coke and how they package and distribute Coke. There are rooms with old Coke memorabilia that you are able to look at. Before you leave you go into a tasting room that allows you to sample Coke products from all around the world. To learn more go to http://www.worldofcoca-cola.com/

Another place that was a lot of fun was the Georgia Aquarium. This is actually located right next to the World of Coke in downtown Atlanta. You can purchase a package for both attractions at a discounted rate. This is the largest aquarium in America and there are many things to see. They have whale sharks, dolphins, sting rays, otters, penguins, frogs, and many other sea creatures. http://www.georgiaaquarium.org/

Stone Mountain Park is another place you should make time to see. It is about 20 minutes outside of Atlanta and located in Stone Mountain, Ga. I used to go as a kid while traveling with my family, and I went this past August. It was just as amazing as I had remembered it. This is a great place for the whole family. The mountain is approximately 1,700 feet and is comprised of mostly granite. You are able to hike to the top or take a sky lift, and the view from the top is absolutely breathtaking. There are many other attractions at the park such as mini golf, ride the ducks, a plantation, kids play areas, and more. They also do a laser show at night which is really nice to see. http://www.stonemountainpark.com/

Atlanta has many other things to do such as Six Flags, Six Flags White Water, Zoo Atlanta, Fernbank Museum of Natural History, etc. I was there for four days and did not have any free time without something to do. I enjoyed my stay and think it is a place worth visiting. To learn more about different things to do in Atlanta visit http://www.atlanta.com/attractions.aspx
