The Usual Attractions
Everybody loves Six Flags. Just get on a rollercoaster and scream out every frustration.
I love White Waters, its coolest place to hang out in the summer
Museums to Amuse
Fernbank has good food and changing exhibits. It’s good for when you want that interesting yet smoother pace.
I love animals so this is just an awesome place for me personally. Also if you just want to walk in nature and enjoy a cool day, this is the place to do it.
I am dying to see the new dolphin show. Just another great place to spend with family or friends.
World of Coca-Cola
You get to make your own flavor at the end of the tour, and I personally love most coca cola products so its an awesome place. Also if you live in Atlanta and you’ve never been, shame on you. http://www.worldofcoca-cola.com/
Atlanta Botanical Gardens
Pretty flowers and in my opinion it would be a great place for a date.
Places to Go
Little Five Points
Food, shopping, culture, need I say more.
More food, more shopping, more culture.
Games and Recreation
It’s the Atlanta Braves, you’ve got to see them at least once, baseball fan or not.
Take out your road rage on an indoor track, also there’s other arcade games. http://www.andrettikarting.com/
Safe indoor thrill, doesn’t get much better than that. This would also be a pretty good place to have a date.
