Kelly Marsh’s Top Things To Do:
Turner Field is amazing stadium to catch a Braves game or any other event. During the summer stay late and you’ll catch some nice fireworks.
Make sure you check out the stellar lineup of events at Philips Arena every summer. In the wintertime don’t miss out on the best Hawks basketball team we’ve seen in a long time.
The Atlanta Falcons are working on a new stadium so make sure to catch them at the Georgia Dome while you still can.
Take a day trip to the largest drive-in restaurant in the world. The food is decent but the atmosphere is pure Southern history.
Centennial Olympic Games Museum
The 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta were both historic and tragic. Relieve all of it at the Atlanta History Center.
Atlanta has a strong music scene. Find time to go to Blind Willie’s and you’ll see some of the best Blues music you’ll see in Georgia.
Atlanta Motor Speedway
If you’ve ever seen a NASCAR event in person you know the exhilaration of just sitting in the stands. But, at Atlanta Motor Speedway you don’t just have to sit in the stands, you can be driven around the track at lightning fast speeds.
Ebenezer Baptist Church
Following an $8 million dollar renovation, Ebenezer Baptist Church looks like it did when Martin Luther King Jr. would give his sermons in the 60s.
Whether you’re visiting or you’ve lived in Atlanta for a while you’ll learn something new about Atlanta’s history on a walking tour of Atlanta’s neighborhoods.
