Natural beauty, adventurous activities, fearless fashion and numerous exciting places to explore – it’s no wonder Atlanta holidays are becoming increasingly popular. Anybody who is interested in the great outdoors, fashion trends and current affairs is certain to thrive in Georgia’s busiest city. 

Undoubtedly, one of the most notable attractions to add to your Atlanta holidays itinerary is a visit to Stone Mountain Park. It’s celebrated for its wide array of family friendly activities and plays host to countless festivals and events throughout the year. It’s also home to Snow Mountain – a 400 foot tubing hill with slopes designed for adults and children of all ages. Atlanta’s Buckhead District is another popular tourist attraction, especially if you are keen to explore the luxurious lifestyles of the city’s upper class. Be sure to save up for an unforgettable, once in a lifetime shopping spree at Lenox Square Mall or Phipps Plaza. 

Atlanta holidays: brands and business 

There are two other impressive places to visit when in Atlanta, Georgia. They are the World of Coca-Cola and the bustling CNN Centre, which is also the global headquarters of CNN. Interact with a host of exhibits, shop at the Coca-Cola store and sample over 100 different beverages from around the globe when you stop by the World of Coca-Cola. 

The best way to explore the CNN Centre is with a guided tour which includes 50 minutes of behind the scenes access to the studio and the centre’s many busy halls. It’s also worth investing in an Atlanta CityPASS which will allow you to save up to 40% off of your admission to the CNN Studio Tours, along with four more of Atlanta’s leading attractions.
