Be sure to make a trip to the World of Coca-Cola, a popular Atlanta attraction that displays a huge collection of memorabilia, hands on exhibits, and video presentations detailing the history of the popular soft drink. As a bonus, you’ll be able to taste unlimited samples in many flavors.

The High Museum of Art boasts over 11,000 pieces in a four-story building, including American, European, and African art, as well as photography and other art forms.

The Fox Theatre is a favorite Atlanta attraction, recently restored to ins original 1920’s design and featuring a classic Moller organ with over 3,600 pipes, nicknamed “Mighty Mo”.
