10 hours in Atlanta

by cottonwood

Ok, 10 hours in Atlanta on Saturday, November 3. What to do for a first time visitor? Assuming my Delta flights are on time, I arrive at 5:20am and depart at 3:30pm from the Atlanta Airport. What shall I do? Any ideas?

You could see the Buckhead area in Atlanta, Underground Atlanta. What do you like to do?

Re: 10 hours in Atlanta

alittle of everything. Playing around with sights in Atlanta, The Coca-Cola place, State Capital Building, Stone Mountain(I think thats what it's called), etc. Any of them worth doing on a Saturday in November? Assuming your Transit system from the airport works well, can I do more than one? Am also open to a rental car to get around. I'll be by myself.

You can take MARTA directly from the airport to the 5 points station in the center of town. From there you can either walk or take the westbound train to the Phillips Arena/World Congress Center stop. It is a short walk from there to the World of Coca Cola and the Georgia Aquarium. Also from 5 points you can easily walk to the Capitol (although there is not much to see there). If you want to see Stone Mountain, you really need a car. Another alternative from 5 points is taking the eastbound train about 3 stops to the King Memorial stop. From there you can easily walk to Dr. & Mrs. King's tombs at the old Ebenezer Baptist Church and across the street is the MLK Center which has some spledid displays, photos and videos of his life.

Travel Tips for Atlanta

Olympic Games 1996

by tpangelinan

Atlanta was the proud host of the 1996 Olympic games openning day July 19th and closing August 4th. All over the city you will see monuments like these to preserve the memory. 197 nations were represented that year with over 10,000 athletes and almost 50,000 volunteers

Atlanta Falcons NFL games @ the Georgia Dome

by TheTravelSlut

I attended my first Atlanta Falcons game on Sunday, Sept. 17, 2006 in a NFL game between the Falcons and my hometeam of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Falcons won the game 14-3 and it was a hard-hitting, exciting game.

I was fortunate and grateful to get a ticket from Matt Schaub, the backup quarterback (#8) of the Atlanta Falcons, and my seat was right next to the Falcons locker room tunnel on the field. Thank you Matt!

I was surrounded by family and friends of players and coaches so there was so shortage of enthusiasm and good times. Plus, the seat had an awesome view and it was on an aisle no less! I did not mention that I was from the Tampa Bay area however and I did cheer for Falcons when they made a good play.

Seeing the game from my perspective and near ground level, I could hear the groans, grunts and collisions between players and I could feel the energy from the stands to the field to the players.

The Stadium itself is wonderful and easy to navigate. There are four main entrances and there is a mezzanine walkway that offers everything from souvenirs to sodas and pizza to beer.

Some interesting facts about the Georgia Dome which is the largest cable-supported domed stadium in the world:
Capacity: 71,149 with 4,604 club seats, 203 suites with 16 & 24 seat capacity
Construction: took 859 days to build, covers 8.6 acres, 275 feet tall (27 stories)
Cost: $210 million and financed by hotel/motel tax, no taxpayer money
Groundbreaking: 11/22/89
Owned by the State of Georgia and managed by Georgia World Congress Center
The Georgia Dome has been host to many of the largest sporting events in the world including:
Super Bowl XXXIV , Super Bowl XXVIII , 1996 Centennial Olympic Games , NCAA Final Four (2002)
The ACC Basketball Tournament (2001) , The SEC Football Championship Game , & The Peach Bowl Do not plan to bring any food or liquids into the Georgia Dome. Just like many other sporting facilities, there are now restrictions on all carried items and entry policies should be checked otherwise you might have a long walk back to your car or if you arrived via public transportation, you may have to sacrifice your items.

There are separate entry lines for men & women at each entrance. Plan to be searched

Backpacks and large bags over 8.5" wide x 13" long x 5: deep are not permitted

Still and film cameras are allowed & Video cameras are prohibited unless specified by the event

Lap-sized portable televisions and radios are welcome into the Dome, provided they are equipped with earphones & laser pointers and similar light-emitting devices are not allowed inside the Dome

Tickets are bar-scanned for entry, searches or purses and your person are conducted, and alcoholic beverages may not be taken out of the Georgia Dome. Also, can, bottles, or food may not be brought into the Georgia Dome.

if you plan to exit the building for any reason, you will need to obtain a wristband at one of the kiosks inside the Dome before exiting--otherwise, re-entry, even with a ticket will be restricted.

Little Five Points is as close...

by steph4867

Little Five Points is as close to bohemia as Atlanta gets. The neighborhood has come a long way since the turn of the century, when it was the commercial district of an elite bedroom community called Inman Park. After a post-WWI decline, Inman Park found itself in the hands of ambitious fixer-uppers and on the National Register of Historic Places. Five Points, having gone through a similar slide, revived under the patronage of the youthful new clientele that bought up Inman Park's crumbling houses. Somewhere along the line, Little Five Points took a slightly beatnik/hippy turn and has been on that road ever since. The center of the neighborhood is at the intersection of Moreland and Euclid Aves, locale of small shops, live theaters, cinemas, bookstores, cafes and restaurants. The nearby Museum of the Jimmy Carter Library features exhibits on Carter's four years (1977-1981) as President of the US.

The Three Dollar Café in...

The Three Dollar Café in Buckhead
Not that different from a lot of big bars, big screen TV's and paper towel dispensers on the tables. It has a dozen of fridge doors containing beers from around the world. You sit at one end of the bar and you make your way to the other end while sampling different beers.
They did have a few I never drank before. none

MARTA

by mnhaus

The MARTA is awesome! It can take you right from the airport to downtown and is great for getting around the city. Granted, since the rail only forms a big "+" in the city there are several places it doesn't go, but most activites are built near the railways and those that aren't are also accessable via city bus. It's my favorite way to get around ATL.
