There are countless programs for the millions of tourists who come to Atlanta every year. From historic tours to places that inspire technology. Here are a few of them:
Centennial Olympic Park
Having hosted the Olympic Games, the park is one of the most famous in the city. The fountain of the rings, symbol of the Olympic games, is set in a large complex that hosts free concerts.
How about seeing whales, otters, turtles and sharks up close? Relax… Atlanta isn’t a coastal city, but it has one off the best aquariums in the world. It features over 500 animal species waiting for your visit.
Martin Luther King Jr.
One of the greatest icons in the struggle for peace was born in Atlanta. Martin Luther King’s memory is recorded in a museum dedicated to the pacifist leader. The house where he lived, the church where he was a minister and his tomb are part of the facility. It’s worth checking out.
Underground, there is a whole other city. A part of 1860’s Atlanta still exists below the hustle and bustle of the cars downtown. There are stores, bars, restaurants and even music in the place today, which seems more like a giant subway station.
