Long layover on a Sunday afternoon

by DSwede

Looks like I might have a long layover on one of my upcoming trips through Atlanta. For the time between flights, can anyone recommend something out of the airport? I'd prefer to see something other than the airport lounges and stretch my legs a bit.

I arrive at 2pm on a Sunday and depart again 7pm.
I'd be relying on public transit.

If there are no recommendations, I'd be up for meeting anyone for happy hour.

Hi Dave, here's your chance to see the world's largest painting and it is about 10 miles from ATL and I believe that MARTA or public transport is available.

There's not that much near the airport that you can reach with ease that you wuold really want to see. Best bets are to take the marta train from the airport station, some recommendations would be to go to the Arts Center station and visit the High Museum. That's also a nice neighborhood to walk around and see the city. Other options would be to continue north to the Lenox station, it lets out near Lenox Mall and Phipps Mall, the south's premier shopping destinations.

You can also take the marta to Peachtree Center or the Civic Center (slightly closer) and walk to the Georgia Acquarium and World of Coke or CNN center. You should be able to visit at least one of these in the time provided. All are near the Olympic park, a nice park in the city.

Event calendar on Atlanta.net might help you find something. Atlanta Station has an Antique Market scheduled for 9/7/08 www.atlanticstation.com - Take MARTA to the Art Center Station and transfer to the free Atlantic Station Shuttle.

5 hours is not alot of time to get in and out of hartsfeild airport. MARTA is as slow as christmas and goes NOWHERE. By the time you got to Lenox, you'd have to turn around and head back. Don't waste your time at the world of coke, CNN center and especially cyclorama. If you need to get out of the airport and want to grab a drink somewhere, take a cab to a place called noche on the corner of virginia and highland - traditionally a local sunday afternoon hangout where you should find plenty of people to have a beer with. If the weather is nice, you could try park tavern at 10th and monroe - another sunday hot spot with huge outdoor area on the park, live music, etc. again, taxi is probably your best bet or you could take MARTA to 10th st station and walk a mile along the park but you'll be stretched for time.

Thanks to all for your replies. My plans are in a bit of flux, but I've noted the suggestions!

What is the date you are going to be in town? My sundays are generally open and I live literally about 5-10 minutes away from the airport. There's no sense in VT'ers being stuck for long layovers at the airport if I'm not otherwise occupied!

Re: Long layover on a Sunday afternoon

by DSwede

Again, thanks for all your input! Schedules have changed and routings too. I'm now a week later than planned and have a way-too-short transfer between JFK and LGA...
Will make it back to Atlanta eventually!

Keep us posted on your Atlanta layovers! It's always nice to meet VT'ers!

Travel Tips for Atlanta

Georgia State Capitol

by cobrioc

Capitol Hill at Washington Street. Atlanta.Ga.
Open Mon- Fri 8am-5pm.

Two kinds of service

by DrewV

You will probably receive one of two kinds of service in Atlanta. One: 'Would you lahk some pah, hon?' (delivered in a soft, sultry Southern drawl) Two: 'Whatchoo want?' (delivered in a brutish, nasty snarl filled with decades' worth of hate). Hopefully, you'll get more of the first.

Pasaquan---St EOM Memorial

by dustmon

Pasaquan is a property that was developed into a piece of art, kind of similar to Howard Finster's Gardens, if you have been there. St EOM, or Eddie Owens Martin, created this world-famous art environment painting the buildings and adding artistic flair to this Southeastern Georgia area near Buena Vista (pronounced Byoo-na-vista) :>
It is only open the first saturday of each month so make your plans accordingly. A very cool place to see if you are in the Callaway Gardens neighborhood or just for a day trip from Atlanta.

Things are closing early now.

by miclev21 about Buckhead

It used to be that this place was an all nighter every night. But, due to shootings, fights and the like, most of the places now close at reasonable times. Everyone is migrating to midtown for late nights and a different scene. (10/04). Check it out b/f you go. Club Wear.

Orange line is ok, blue line is lousy

by Diego_dog

The MARTA subway is an ok way of getting about from the airport to Perimeter (that's if you're REALLY trying to save money). The orange lines (north - south routes) are good, and the cars are usually clean; however, the blue lines (east - west of 5 points) are nothing short of a trash pit (both in appearance and odor).

I wouldn't recommend the subway in Atlanta, as it really costs more to use it than just driving your own car. Park your car at the Perimeter Mall parking / Medical Center parking lot and use it to go downtown if you do not want to pay for parking. Overall, the subway system in Atlanta is average when compared with other major cities in the US.
