Top Places to Visit in Atlanta

When you vis­it our city, you can count on get­ting “only in Atlanta” expe­ri­ences. These must-see attrac­tions in Atlanta are fun for the whole fam­i­ly and will keep your itin­er­ary full of mem­o­rable stops.


Expe­ri­ence a lush, urban oasis at the Atlanta Botan­i­cal Gar­den. Enjoy walk­ing through the Atlanta Botan­i­cal Garden’s Orchid Dis­play House or take a stroll through the Canopy Walk, a 600-foot sus­pen­sion bridge. Before vis­it­ing, check for spe­cial pro­gram­ming such as Cock­tails in the Gar­den or the sum­mer music series. Dur­ing the hol­i­days, take in one of Atlanta’s most famed light­ing dis­plays. How­ev­er you choose to expe­ri­ence Atlanta Botan­i­cal Gar­den, let the col­ors of the sea­son fill your mem­o­ries and pho­tos!


Watch the past come to life at the Atlanta His­to­ry Cen­ter. Hous­ing the largest col­lec­tion of Civ­il War mem­o­ra­bil­ia in the South­east, the Atlanta His­to­ry Cen­ter guides you through Atlanta’s fall and rise as an Inter­na­tion­al City. After tour­ing the acres of gar­dens, if you still have ener­gy, take a run on the bas­ket­ball hard­wood from the 1996 Cen­ten­ni­al Olympic Games held in Atlanta.


Cen­ten­ni­al Olympic Park, housed in the cen­ter of Atlanta’s down­town con­ven­tion and enter­tain­ment dis­trict, serves as Atlanta’s lega­cy from the 1996 Olympic Games. Vis­it the urban green space and make a splash in the Foun­tain of Rings or have a pic­nic in the lush grass (there’s even a restau­rant in the mid­dle of the park!). Cen­ten­ni­al Olympic Park is a true must-see attrac­tion!


Find your team on the Hel­met Wall, punt a foot­ball to score a field goal, and view sports his­to­ry from the 52-foot touch screen wall at the Col­lege Foot­ball Hall of Fame and Chick-Fil-A Fan Expe­ri­ence. As a must vis­it for every col­lege foot­ball fan, the Hall is an inter­ac­tive expe­ri­ence for all guests who vis­it. Locat­ed across from Cen­ten­ni­al Olympic Park in down­town Atlanta, The Hall hon­ors its inductees while engag­ing fans through cel­e­brat­ing their favorite teams and love for the game.


Are you a news junkie? Want to see how the news is made, or maybe just catch a glimpse of a CNN anchor? Take the Inside CNN Stu­dio Tour and you might get both! This news giant is head­quar­tered in Atlanta and offers behind the scenes tours every day. Slip into the con­trol room, get a glimpse at how pro­duc­ers work and even try your hand at being a mete­o­rol­o­gist. Think you have what it takes to work at CNN? Slide behind the anchor desk and give it your best shot…but you can only do it in Atlanta!


Escape into an under­wa­ter par­adise at Geor­gia Aquar­i­um where you can see the world’s largest fish, the whale shark, as well as bel­u­gas, dol­phin, otters and more. Take a behind the scenes tour or indulge in one of Geor­gia Aquarium’s ani­mal encoun­ters where you can swim with the whale sharks, pet a bel­u­ga or get up close with a pen­guin. No mat­ter if you have two hours or the whole day, Geor­gia Aquar­i­um is a site that you can’t miss when vis­it­ing Atlanta.


Take a jour­ney through King’s sto­ried life as the leader of the Civ­il Rights move­ment, start­ing with a guid­ed tour his birth home and a stop in the orig­i­nal Ebenez­er Bap­tist Church. The site is a nation­al park and fea­tures mul­ti­ple exhibits that shine a light on defin­ing moments in King’s life and with­in the move­ment, as well as a the­ater where vis­i­tors can view Civ­il Rights films. Not just for the his­to­ry buff, the Mar­tin Luther King, Jr. Nation­al His­toric Site is a mov­ing trib­ute to one of Atlanta’s most famed sons.


What do you get when the world’s most icon­ic brand builds a muse­um ded­i­cat­ed to a soft drink? Well, the World of Coca-Cola of course! Step into the home of hap­pi­ness when you enter the doors. Take in tons of Coca-Cola mem­o­ra­bil­ia and a short film guar­an­teed to make you smile. Try your hand at writ­ing the company’s his­toric logo, and when you fail mis­er­ably, cheer your­self up in the tast­ing room, where guests trav­el the globe by sip­ping more than 60 vari­eties of Coca-Cola from around the world.
