The capital of the South

Luxury mega-malls, the World of Coca-Cola, and world-class museums are just some of what make Atlanta an attractive travel destination for so many Americans and foreign visitors. Atlanta also offers lesser-known attractions that define the soul of the city, like Victorian buildings and historical landmarks, a rich assortment of skyscrapers, gorgeous parks, and year-round festivals. Atlanta will keep you busy for days, but even those who spend just a few hours here will never forget the pearl of Georgia.

Timeless memorials of '96 Olympics Editors' Note

Located in downtown Atlanta, the Centennial Olympic Park can be found amidst a number of hotels, restaurants and attractions, all within walking distance. It was originally built for the 1996 Olympics, but re-opened in 1998 to showcase more permanent structures that can anchor the city’s tourism.

One of the most popular features of the Centennial Olympic Park is the humongous and dazzling park fountain in the shape of interlocking Olympic Ring. Wait for the entertaining combination of music and fountain action, complete with lights for viewing- quite comparable to Bellagio Fountain Show of Las Vegas.

Best of all, the fountain show is absolutely for free. Another free of charge are the cultural shows hosted by local artists happening in the the park from April to September.
