Spend a day around Centennial Olympic Park and nearby attractions. Get a taste of soda pop history at the World of Coca-Cola, take a behind the scenes look at Inside CNN Tour, or see what lurks beneath the sea at Georgia Aquarium. Wrap up the day with a sunset ride on SkyView Atlanta. Want to do a little shopping? Pick up a few souvenirs from Underground Atlanta in the Five Points neighborhood or head uptown to do some serious shopping at Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza. Visit the Woodruff Arts Center and High Museum of Art for a dose of culture or catch a home game of the Atlanta Braves, Hawks, or Falcons. If you're feeling adventurous, you can rent a car in Atlanta for a side trip to Six Flags over Georgia.
Festivals and Events
Weekends in Atlanta can be whirlwinds when you attend one of the city's annual festivals. The Atlanta Food & Wine Festival dedicates an entire weekend in May to Southern cuisine, while the sci-fi and pop culture convention Dragon Con takes over downtown Atlanta hotels every Labor Day weekend. If you're into music, you can build your Atlanta vacation packages around attending the Atlanta Dogwood Festival in April or one of Piedmont Park's many music festivals, such as September's Music Midtown and the Atlanta Jazz Festival on Memorial Day weekend.
