When visiting Atlanta you can never be bored. There are a host of cultural, educational and just plain fun activities here for you to do. You can visit the The King Center – here you can view exhibits, Dr. King’s birth home and pay your respects to him at his final resting place. Atlanta is also the home of the Carter Center (President Carter is a Georgia native) which is committed to advancing human rights and alleviating unnecessary human suffering. The Margaret Mitchell House and Museum is here – she is the author of Gone With the Wind and tours are offered at her home.
Atlanta is an international city, since 1996 Olympics were held here in Atlanta things have been booming. You can visit the Centennial Olympic Park – it is beautiful! The park area is a hub of activity. In walking distance you have the New World Of Coca-Cola, the Georgia Aquarium (the world’s largest) , and Imagine It! The Children’s Museum.
The High Museum of Art is here and always features great exhibits. Currently the Louve Atlanta is being exhibited and History Remixed –Road to Freedom: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement 1956-1968 and After 1968: Contemporary Artists and The Civil Rights Legacy. The First Emperor China’s Terracotta Army will be visiting us from November until April next year.
Atlanta is also home to the Fox Theater, the Woodruff Arts Center, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Stone Mountain Park, and Six Flags Over Georgia. I can go on and on. Plan a visit to Atlanta, I assure you that you won’t be disappointed. In the meanwhile have a look around my blog – check out my Do Something post and some of my featured posts on the right sidebar. I hope that you enjoy a brief view into my world here in the ATL.
