Fun Staycation Ideas for Downtown Atlanta

If you have kids the fountains in Centennial Olympic Park are tons of fun…IMG_5284

IMG_2298Then you can ride the Sky View Ferris Wheel….IMG_5295    IMG_2289 Then go to The Westin Peachtree Plaza The Sundial restaurant and bar….IMG_2295The top two floors rotate, so you can have a sweet tea or a Coke and get a great view of Atlanta.

There are always the obvious Georgia Aquarium, World of Coke and The College Hall of FameIMG_5341

On the Georgia Tech Campus there is the Clough Garden a roof top garden.

Oh and the new trolley is running and you can ride it for free. It will take you to the King Historic Area and Sweet Auburn Market.IMG_0830The market has fresh fruit, seafood, sausage and meats and restaurants.

A lot of movies are being shot in Atlanta now, so you can go  for an Atlanta Movie Tours…IMG_1667They have several different tours you can take and enjoy.

The Summer is here and there are tons of fun things to do in Atlanta!

Landmarks around Atlanta – Centennial Olympic Park

IMG_2313Centennial Olympic Park is in downtown Atlanta. It’s a beautiful place to visit and there is a lot to do….IMG_5276     IMG_5274

IMG_5295You can play in the fountains, but every now and then they put on a fountain concert. It was actually really entertaining. IMG_5301This groovy little chickadee enjoyed it!

Then you can take a ride on Sky View, where I met this super nice photographer, and Lucky, a sweet girl who is a loader, they put you into the cars.IMG_5316 Oh and there was a company outing in the park and there were teams of line dancers…IMG_5331

The College Hall of Fame is down there now too. IMG_5317  IMG_5341Which I am sure it will become a landmark on its own in the future.

All that walking got me a little peckish, so off to IMG_5344Legal Sea Foods, which is a Boston Landmark with an outpost here. It is so good.IMG_5346Clam Chowder and a Blue Moon beer, yummy. I was also my server’s very first customer ever, that was so cool, and she was very sweet and attentive.

There are so many things more to share, but, another day!
