Family vacations in Atlanta - where to stay?

by eflouret

Hello,

I'm planning a family travel to Atlanta and would like to know where to stay.

I´ve been reading in this forum so many warnings about crime and unsafe neighbours that it leaves me with the sensation that I will get mugged, at best, no matter what.

I'm planning to stay about five days and visit Coca Cola, CNN, Botanical Garden, the aquarium and stone mountain park.

Where should I stay that is safe and near those places?
Should I rent a car or simply take taxis? I´ll be travelling with my wife and two kids.

Thanks!!

Enrique

Re: Family vacations in Atlanta - where to stay?

You can get to most of the places you mention by MARTA subway with the exception of Stone Mtn. Most of the downtown area hotels charge extra for parking your car, so you would have to weigh the pros and cons about a car rental. The downtown area has a large % of homeless people wandering around, but panhandling is illegal and if anyone approaches asking you for money a polite and firm NO does the trick. The mugging threat is over-hyped as long as you exercise big city common sense.

Thanks Dave, that sounds reasonable.
And where do you think should I stay? Is downtown a smart choice, or should a look for some other location?

Regards,

Enrique

There are some nice hotels downtown near to the CNN Center, Centennial park, etc, but it will depend on your budget. Another nice place for a variety of hotels but further away from the downtown sights is the area around Perimeter Mall.

Great, thanks! I will take a look.

Hello, I wouldnt worry so much about being mugged downtown as it is a pretty busy and I doubt with the list of places you plan on visiting you will be wandering off to some bad alley or side street because they are sitting beside each other.
I would rent a car it is easy to find secured parking in downtown and some of the other spots you intend on visiting are kinda far out (Stone Mountain).
As for staying in a hotel just a short drive north on I75 around exits 259 and 260 you will find nice hotels and 2 Malls to do some shopping. From exit 260 heading south back into the city is considered one of Atlanta's richer areas and is pretty safe and almost no homeless to deal with.

Still if you plan on staying "downtown" there are many very nice hotels, but at night you may be a little conserned about bring the young ones out.

Travel Tips for Atlanta

Altanta Citypass

by DarleneCMF

If you are spending a few days in Atlanta and planning to check out many local attractions, then I recommend getting the CityPass (http://www.citypass.com/atlanta). In May2010, it cost $74 per adult ticket. It was worth it for us because we were able to use all except 1. :) I will remember Atlanta because it was my whole family's first trip outside the country. :)

Finger-lickin' Southern Style Banana Bread!

by JessH

I've always been a huge fan of banana bread... not the overly-moist, overly-sweet, overly-chemical tasting varieties from the supermarket - but the wholesome, home-made loaves with crunchy walnut pieces and wonderful flavours of difference spices.

This is my Banana Bread Recipe... tried and tested, the basics taken from a true Southern cooking book and adjusted and tweaked until it was juuuuust right :-) Enjoy!

This is a moist, buttery banana bread loaded with loads of banana flavour.

Cooking Time:
Regular oven: 1 hour 45 min.
Fan assisted oven: 1 hour 15min.
Makes 2 loafs or 1 loaf & 12 muffins.

Ingredients:
> 1 cup soft / half-melted butter
> 1 3/4 cups caster sugar (or 1 1/2 cups brown sugar)
> 4 eggs
> 1/4 teaspoon salt
> 2 teaspoons baking soda
> 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
> Centre of 2 fresh vanilla pods
> 6 large bananas, very ripe, mashed
> 1 cup chopped walnuts (1/2 cup finely chopped, 1/2 cup roughly chopped).

Conversions:
1 cup = 230g.
325F = 170C.

Preparation:

> Preheat the oven to 170C.
> Mix butter and sugar. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition.
> Peel the bananas and mash them (a potato masher works best)
> Add centres of vanilla pods, cinammon and salt to the mix.
> Sift flour and baking soda; add to creamed mixture 2 spoons at a time.
--> TIP: If the dough becomes to thick to mix before you've added all the flour, add some moisture by stirring-in a few spoons full of the mashed bananas at this point.
> Stir in remaining bananas and the chopped nuts.

Pour banana nut bread batter into 2 well-greased loaf pans; bake at 170C for about 1 hour 15 min (fan assisted) or 1 hour 45min (non fan-assisted), or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Some people like to add sugar icing on the cake once it's done, but I prefer to taste the banana flavour and not just sugar, so best to leave it rustic and plain as it is :-)

Mile High Adventure

by TheTravelSlut

This is unique, unusual, unexpected and unconventional for sure.

While I have not personally visited or experienced this location and company and what it has to offer, I have learned of it through two sources now.

The business is located at the West Georgia Regional Airport outside Atlanta in Carrollwood and is off Interstate 20 on Airport Road.

You and your partner can have a "Mile High Adventure" and become members of the "Mile High Club" at or above 5,280 feet in a Piper airplane that is designed for this purpose.

The cost is $299.00 U.S. for a one (1) hour flight. The price includes a bottle of champagne & the bedsheets (I'm not making this up).

The company has been written about in Travel & Leisure & Razor magazines, and the USA Today newspaper.

The plane only flies on clear days and the business and pilot claim extreme discreteness & confidentiality.

Great atmosphere and traditional irish music. We all came here after my brother won the silver medal for swimming in the paralympic games. The staff were so nice, they even gave us a free bar for the night! casual
