In Atlanta, there are a lot of things to do such as Georgia Aquarium, Coca-cola Museum, CNN and many more things to do. My personal favorite one was Georgia Aquarium since it has a big building with a lot of amazing animals, and I had a lot of fun every time I visit there. Also, there are a lot of places to eat so if you are hungry, it is easy to go somewhere and have a nice meal. However, there are also some places that I personally do not recommend to go. At downtown Atlanta, there are places that a lot of homeless live on the streets and it is kind of dangerous to go at nights by only yourself. But if you don't walk there at nights, it is pretty safe to walk in days. Despite of that, it is a nice place to visit so if you come to Georgia at any point, I would highly recommend you to go see some attractions in Atlanta!

Atlanta, GA is a well known city in the South. It hosts the largest international airline, Hartsfield Jackson Airport, and provides many family-oriented activities. For example, the Botanical Gardens is a great place to get outside with the nature! We also have a fun amusement park, Six Flags Over Georgia. Along with all these outdoor activities, Atlanta offers a variety of places to eat like the Sun Dial Restaurant downtown. Now if you want to get away from big things, Atlanta has many small towns with lots of character. One good example is Marietta, GA which is my hometown!
Atlanta is one the most underrated cities on the East Coast! There is so much to do, I am going to have to summarize it all so this review doesn't drag on. One a weekly basis, the city offers various family friendly events, arts and cultural festivals, a hip nightlife, historical events, and so much more. The Beltline (an outdoor walkway that connects the inner neighborhoods) has brought so much life to Atlanta. You can spend a whole weekend walking it and visiting various shops, restaurants, all while marveling at local artist's installations and awesome street art. Atlanta also has some of the top universities and hospitals in the nation. Not into city life? Just jump in a car and drive an hour north to be surrounded by mother nature and enjoy scenic views and hikes. There is really so much to do in this beautiful, culturally diverse city- everyone will feel at home here!
