While you may plan your Atlanta trip around a specific activity, like visiting Six Flags Over Georgia or hiking to the summit of Stone Mountain, what you'll find once you arrive is that there is far more awaiting youthan what you may have expected. And that's a good thing! Given the city's diversity, there's an abundance of museums, cultural centers, theater, concerts, events, festivals, parks, monuments, museums, restaurants and more.
Thus, options for a well-rounded vacation come aplenty with a diverse variety of attractions to consider, whether you're arriving with a group of friends, a spouse, a lover, colleagues on a business retreat or family. Art aficionados can take their pick of galleries and small museums to browse through, though the High Museum of Art provides a unique experience attracting renowned artists and collections from all over the globe. If the arts are dear to your heart, you'd do well to stick near the Woodruff Arts Center (where the High makes its home) and check out performances at Alliance Theatre where world premiers are commonplace. Broadway acts and globally recognized musicians pay regular visits to the gilded Fox Theatre nearby (where a pre-performance drink at The Georgian Terrace is in order).
Nature lovers will fawn over the forested city, a beautiful example of which is the leafy, family-friendly Piedmont Park (almost always the site of a festival or event of some kind). When the city gets too hot for comfort, nature mesmerizes at the Georgia Aquarium.
