Indulge your daredevil side at Six Flags Over Georgia. Austell’s sprawling theme park has more than a dozen exciting roller coasters, water slides and thrill rides.
4. State Farm Arena
Visit the State Farm Arena in the heart of downtown Atlanta to mingle with basketball fans. Or watch an ice hockey game or figure ice skating competition, if that’s more your thing. And how about coming here for a concert? There are about 200 events to choose from each year, which means there is something for everyone.
5. World of Coca Cola
The World of Coca-Cola museum details the history and ethos of one of the world’s most successful and famous brands. Taste nearly every variety of Coca-Cola from around the world, revisit vintage marketing campaigns and see how the soda has evolved. The museum is located beside the Georgia Aquarium in downtown Atlanta.
6. Centennial Olympic Park
Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park is one of the city’s major public spaces. The 21-acre (nine-hectare) downtown park is bound by several major attractions: the Georgia Aquarium, the CNN Center and the World of Coca-Cola.
7. Zoo Atlanta
Zoo Atlanta is home to more than 1,500 animals, from African elephants to rare Guatemalan beaded lizards. This popular tourist destination has been around since the late 1800s. It all started with a small pack of circus animals, including a bear, jaguar, hyena, pumas, lions and snakes. When the show went bankrupt, the animals were bought by a Georgian businessman who donated them to the City of Atlanta.
