The city of Atlanta is bursting with museums, family-friendly attractions and scenic gardens, making it a popular place for a holiday. You could save money on your accommodation there by renting a spacious apartment or house in the city centre or the more peaceful suburbs. There will be more privacy than in a hotel room, and you will be free to decide whether to eat out or prepare your own food for a change.
Don't miss the Atlanta History Center, which features a museum and two historic houses as well as woodlands, gardens and wildlife trails. Atlanta Botanical Gardens is a super place for the whole family with its Dinosaur Garden, Japanese Garden and frog ponds, not to mention the Gardens under Glass and Storza Woods. Interested in history? Visit the Atlanta Cyclorama and Civil War Museum in the Historic Grant Park to marvel at the huge painting of the American Civil War Battle of Atlanta. Next to it is Zoo Atlanta, where you can see the largest collection of orangutans and gorillas in the U.S. The zoo is one of only four in the country that houses giant pandas. Georgia's Stone Mountain State Park is a fifteen-minute drive from the city centre; the largest exposed granite dome in the world offers sky rides and hiking trails amongst beautiful scenery.
Dinosaur fans will love the Fernbank museum of Natural History with its complete skeleton of an Argentinosaurus and hands-on “Sensing Nature” exhibit. Georgia Aquarium boasts the only whale sharks in captivity outside of Asia as well as giant Japanese crabs and beluga whales. You can dive and swim, and there is a play area for young children. Close by is World of Coca-Cola, where you can learn about the history of the drink and see how it is bottled; young children will love meeting the Coca-Cola Polar Bear. Be sure to find time to see a show, take part in a workshop or visit the museum at the Center for Puppetry Arts.
