Centennial Olympic Park

Home of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games and the world’s largest Olympic Ring fountain, Centennial Olympic Park provides year-round entertainment including concerts, festivals and family activities.
Capitol Building
Constructed between 1884 and 1889, this monumental neoclassical structure with its gilded dome is the perfect expression and symbol for the capitol of the "New South" as Atlanta considered itself to be after the Reconstruction. Along with many state capitols, its design and form follow architectural precedents established by the United States Capitol.

Georgia Railroad Freight Depot

Just outside Underground Atlanta, The Georgia Railroad Freight Depot is the oldest building in the area. When it was built in 1869, the Depot was Atlanta's tallest building with three floors but was reduced to one story by fire in 1935. Today, the Depot is used as a special events facility. The city's oldest landmark, the Zero Milepost, is located only a few hundred feet to the north, near the spot where a surveyor for the Western and Atlantic Railroad drove a stake in 1837 to mark the terminating point of the new railroad. The settlement, which emerged at this location eventually, came to be known as Atlanta.

Underground Atlanta

Visit historic Underground Atlanta if you are looking to do some shopping in town. You will get it out of your system while visiting one of the most historic areas in the city. Many interpretive signs are around the Underground giving you a history tour of Atlanta. Underground Atlanta is located on six city blocks in the Heart of Downtown, offering a complete family experience with retail, specialty and gift shops, fast food, entertainment, special events, and plenty of restaurants. It also hosts the annual Peach Drop on New Year's Eve.

World of Coca-Cola

Experience the intriguing World of Coca-Cola! The attraction features a multi-sensory 4-D theater, an extraordinary 1880s soda fountain, live-action bottling line, and the opportunity to sample nearly 60 different beverages from around the world.

Food at Pitty Pat's Porch

Since 1967, Pitty Pat’s Porch has been offering visitors to Atlanta cuisine that visitors would expect, such as fried chicken and deep dish pie. Over the years, they have created an atmosphere similar to an old plantation, complete with a veranda where guests could rock and sip mint juleps while watching the diners below. From there, guests wander down the old wooden stair case and pass under old brick arches on their way to dine. The dining room is filled with American antiques and modern era furniture to create a pleasant atmosphere where one can imagine they were transported to the days of the antebellum.
