How to Reach

By Air

Atlanta Airport is 10 miles (16 km) south of downtown Atlanta off Interstate I-85.

There are three major highways serving the airport. The I-285 runs east-west and is to the south of the airport, the I-75 and I-85 run north-south with the I-75 to the east of the airport and the I-85 to the west. The airport exit is clearly marked from all directions.

From downtown Atlanta take the I-75 south, then the I-85 to the airport.

By Train

There is a subway system of sorts in Atlanta, but it is very limited in the places it goes. The system is run by MARTA – the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority. The system boats two main lines you can choose from. They cross at the Five Points station, in the heart of downtown Atlanta. A one way fare using the Breeze card system is $1.75 but there are also multi-day and month passes available. Trains don’t run very frequently; usually every 15 minutes during non-peak hours and every 10 minutes during rush hour. You can also take the MARTA train from the airport to the downtown core, which provides another money saving alternative to taking a taxi. If you like, you can always take a taxi once you reach downtown if you aren’t quite sure where your hotel is in relation to the MARTA station.

By Bus

The main bus service here is also run by MARTA, and the same Breeze cards that get you on the subway get you on the buses, too. There are more than 100 routes spread out over the entire city and they offer the most affordable way to get from one place to the next. However, few of the routes are direct and you can spend a good portion of your vacation either waiting for the next bus or on the bus as you creep to your destination. If the land isn’t too steep in front of you and you have less than a few miles to travel, many Europeans simply walk.

Places to Visit

Martin Luther King Jr National Historic Site

Two blocks on Auburn Avenue are now protected as a National Historic Site. They include the birthplace of the civil rights campaigner Martin Luther King Jr at 501 Auburn Avenue, which dates from 1895, and the Ebenezer Baptist Church (407-413 Auburn Ave.), in which he and his father were ministers. Immediately adjoining, in the Freedom Hall Complex, is his grave. The Martin Luther King Jr Center for Nonviolent Social Change (with an exhibition) is also in this area.

World of Coca-Cola

In 1886 a chemist named Dr John Pemberton devised a syrup designed to relieve headaches. A friend of his mixed the glutinous liquid with water and carbonic acid, and the result of the mixture soon became the world's most popular soft drink. The World of Coca-Cola entertainingly illustrates the history and triumphal progress of the world-famous drink.

The World of Coca­Cola has moved and is now located at the 20-acre Pemberton Place across from Centennial Olympic Park.

Stone Mountain Park

Take an adventure to Stone Mountain Park. Experience the hit movie, Journey to the Center of the Earth in an all-new 4D Adventure. Climb high up in the trees on the new Sky Hike, the nation's largest adventure ropes course fun for the whole family. Hop aboard the Stone Mountain Scenic Railroad for a five-mile journey or enjoy an incredible view of Atlanta on the Skylift. Other attractions at Stone Mountain Park include the Lasershow Spectacular, mini-golf, a friendly farmyard,  museums and much more.

Georgia Aquarium

The Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta features a wide variety of marine life and some very interesting and interactive activities for visitors. The aquarium is home to some of the largest creatures in the ocean including whale sharks, the largest fish in the sea. One unique option offered by the Georgia Aquarium is the opportunity to dive or snorkel in the tank with the sharks. To participate in the dive program visitors must have SCUBA diving certification.

For those not looking to get wet the aquarium also has an acrylic tunnel to walk through and view fish swimming on all sides.

Rhodes Hall

Rhodes Hall is one of the last castles on Peachtree Street in Atlanta. It houses the Georgia Trust offices as well as a museum on the ground floor which displays the Victorian interior.
