Downtown Atlanta, Packed Full of Surprises
Often referred to as ‘the hub of the south’, Atlanta is a sprawling city located in Georgia, USA. Its downtown area includes the city’s central business district (CBD), and is home to several corporate headquarters. Don’t be fooled though, Downtown Atlanta is not just work and no play. You’ll need a few days just to get through all that this beautiful city has to offer, and the well-organised public transport makes this a whole lot easier. MARTA is Atlanta’s public train system connecting the downtown area with greater Atlanta, while a network of busses connect you to your final destination within the city.
Exploring this Diverse City One Attraction at a Time
A great place to start your exploration of Atlanta is at Centennial Olympic Park, which pays homage to the 1996 Olympic Games held in the city. You’ll find scenic spots to picnic amongst the skyscrapers, as well as the famous Fountain of Rings where the kids will be able to play. While you’re in the park, a ride on SkyView Ferris Wheel is also a fantastic way to see the city, and if you’re lucky, you may come across one of many free concerts held in the park every month. Underground Atlanta is a great spot to get a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants, as well as satisfying your retail therapy while discovering the birthplace of Atlanta’s transportation industry.
With its title as world’s largest aquarium, Georgia Aquarium simply cannot be missed. You’ll be mesmerised the moment you arrive, with sea creatures including manta rays, bottlenose dolphins, whale sharks, and piranhas. After your visit under the ocean, why not grab a Coke at World of Coca-Cola. During your visit, you’ll be able to explore the interactive museum and taste test drinks from all over the world. While you’re in the mood to learn, take a fascinating tour around CNN’s global headquarters to understand how 24-hour news studios operate.
