DAY TRIPS AROUND METRO ATLANTA

Looking to explore the greater Atlanta area?  Sandy Springs offers a gateway to endless opportunities in every direction.

Wonderful things to do are spread out far and wide around us in Greater Atlanta.  Look at the map and you’ll see that Sandy Springs is central to almost all of them with quick access via MARTA, I-285 and GA 400.  You’ll pay less to stay in Sandy Springs and have access to more.  

Spend some quality time in the Centennial Park District. Experience the fascinating story of Coca‑Cola® – the world’s best-known beverage brand.  Visit the headquarters of CNN Worldwide, or swim with whale sharks at the Georgia Aquarium.  See the city from a giant Ferris wheel at SkyView Atlanta or on a Peachtree Trolley Tour.  Take in a Hawks game at Philips Arena or relive your team’s glory days at the College Football Hall of Fame.  Your family can hang out at the Children’s Museum of Atlanta or reflect on the powerful imagery and artifacts at the Center for Civil and Human Rights.  And  all of these attractions are located around Atlanta’s beautiful Centennial Olympic Park.

There’s more to explore in Atlanta’s neighborhoods. Take in the renowned collections in the Southeast’s leading art museum, the High Museum of Art, in Midtown.  A little further down the road in Midtown,  take a walk through the treetops on the Kendeda Canopy Walk at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Or head to the city’s Grant Park area to watch the giant pandas play at Zoo Atlanta.

Learn more about Atlanta and Georgia. You’ll find lots to learn about Georgia’s history at the Atlanta History Center, which is also home to the Tullie Smith Farm and the Swan House, also known as President Snow’s house in “The Hunger Games” films.  The AHC also operates the Margaret Mitchell House in Midtown Atlanta, where Margaret Mitchell lived and wrote her Pulitzer-Prize winning novel, Gone With the Wind.

See more great things in Greater Atlanta. Just west of Atlanta, giggle and scream on the rides at Six Flags Over Georgia.  Or head east to take in the 3,200 acres of natural beauty and attractions that are all part of  Stone Mountain Park.  Trek through treetops on the nation’s largest adventure course, take a ride on the Stone Mountain Railroad and see the mountain from all sides, or hike or ride to the top to see all the metro area has to offer from one vantage point.
