Where to stay in Atlanta
This was the centre of the 1996 Olympic Games, but since this monumental event, Centennial Olympic Park has become the focal point of Atlanta’s tourism industry. There is plenty of action happening within and around this 21-acre green space year-round. Sites like the impressive New World of Coca-Cola and the world’s largest indoor aquarium, Georgia Aquarium, are found to the north of the park. Meanwhile, an ice-skating rink in the heart of the park, not to mention dozens of fascinating festivals and concerts, add to the splendour of this landmark. A wonderful selection of hotels exists around Centennial Olympic Park, including the likes of Omni Hotel CNN Tower. Midtown museums
The Midtown district is a great place to spend an entire day exploring museums and galleries. One of the most important art museums in the southern US is Midtown’s High Museum of Art, which rests on Peachtree Street, close to the Fox Theater and Museum of Design Atlanta. Other popular art and culture landmarks include the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center and the Museum of Contemporary Art. Tourists with a taste for culture and fine art will undoubtedly be in their element in Midtown Atlanta. Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site
Despite Atlanta’s growth in precious modern attractions, one of the city’s undying treasures is the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site. Tourists can jump back in time to the Civil Rights Movement era, as a plethora of wondrous landmarks are located within the site. The Ebenezer Baptist Church where Martin Luther King Sr. and Jr. were pastors can be toured. Dr King’s childhood residence, the International Civil Rights Walk of Fame, the World Peace Rose Garden, Gandhi Promenade and a host of historic, 19th-century homes can be found within this national historic site, too. Eating and drinking and shopping nearbyRegardless of where tourists decide to stay, Atlanta is full of dining, shopping, and clubbing opportunities that cater for everyone. Underground Atlanta in the Downtown district is home to an impressive list of specialty stores, not to mention a range of late-night clubbing spots. When it comes to nightlife, Atlanta has a range of places to trial, depending on what tourists are after. Trendy, chic nightspots are often found in Buckhead, while the alternative crowd heads to Little Five Points. Two megamalls harmoniously co-exist in Buckhead, Phipps Plaza and Lenox Square. For a day (or even more) of shopping and dining, these massive market monoliths are the perfect places to visit. Accommodation like Glenn Hotel and JW Marriott are among the numerous high-end hotels close to these megamalls.Public transportGetting around the city is relatively easy due to the convenient and extensive public rail and bus system. The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, commonly known as MARTA, extends throughout the central and suburban districts of Georgia’s capital. The rail network boasts four connecting lines, while more than 100 bus routes operate across Atlanta. Tickets are relatively inexpensive.
