Final Four in Atlanta, Georgia

29 Mar

Atlanta.jpgMarch Madness is in full swing and the lucky teams that are still left in the hunt have all eyes toward Atlanta, Georgia. Yes, the Georgia Dome in Atlanta will host the NCAA Final Four tourney and fans of college basketball far and wide will be flocking to the “Peach State”.

Of course, there’s plenty to do and see if you happen to visit Atlanta, Georgia during the tournament or even after the final whistle blows. Take a look at what Atlanta has to offer!

 

Piedmont Park
This 189 acre park offers amazing views of the Atlanta skyline and plays host for many events/festivals year round. The park used to be a farm in the 1800’s and even hosted professional baseball games until 1904. The close proximity (1 mile) to downtown makes it an easy sight to visit while in the Atlanta area.

Martin Luther King Jr. National History Site

You can take some time to visit Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s boyhood home, Ebenezer Baptist church (where he served as pastor) and MLK’s final resting place & eternal flame – all featured on this national historic site.

CNN Studio Tour
The news giant is headquartered in Atlanta and the studio tour gives you a peek behind the scenes. Check out how a newsroom operates and watch reporters in action!

World of Coca-Cola
Are you a Coca-Cola fanatic? Well then this is your Graceland! The headquarters of the soft drink giant are also located in Atlanta so to have this 20 acre museum located here made perfect sense. This exhibition includes memorabilia, a tasting center and a collection of Coca-Cola advertisements over the years.
