Places To Go In Atlanta

It’s not just the smiling strangers politely discussing current events over frosty glasses of sweet tea that makes Atlanta, Georgia feel welcoming. In fact, the entire city seems to envelop you in a warm embrace. From walking down avenues lined with Yellow Buckeyes and Trident Maples that were planted for their beauty as well as their shade, to basking in the sense of pride residents feel toward Centennial Olympic Park, the Empire City of the South offers more than a tourist destination—it offers a peaceful state of mind. Reserve your stay at our Atlanta hotels and steal a glimpse of the South for yourself, if only for a few days.

Things to Do in Atlanta

Reflect on the impact one person can have on the world at the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site. Visiting the birthplace of Dr. King will surely send shivers up your spine, but understanding the impact the Civil Rights Movement had on the city will also allow you to appreciate the tenacious attitudes of locals. Looking for additional insight into what makes America tick? Take a tour of the CNN Center. The network’s global headquarters offers an exclusive look into their detail-oriented production process. For adventurous wanderers hunting for more things to do in Atlanta, you’ll be elated to spend a day at the Georgia Aquarium. The facility places a heavy emphasis on conservation, and allows visitors the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to swim with whale sharks. Floating alongside the gentle giants will surely be a thrilling memory that stands out in your mind for years to come (not to mention that it will be a touch more exciting than swimming in your hotel’s pool).

There are a plethora of Atlanta attractions that will make your time in the Big Peach worthwhile, but the real reason to visit is to revel in the joyful embrace of the South. Reserve one of Travelocity’s luxurious Atlanta vacation packages, and you’ll feel a surge of satisfaction down to your core while visiting Georgia…and it won’t be from that third sweet tea you just polished off.
