What travellers are saying
- A great and large aquarium with so many things to see and do. You can spend a few hours gazing at the big shakes, sea creatures, albino alligator, jelly fish, and so forth. Decent sized cafe and plenty of parking.Written January 24, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We visit annually, usually for the Garden Lights, Holiday Nights event. It is spectacular! Buy your tickets in advance. There is paid parking onsite, but you could just as easily get dropped off by lyft or uber. Best after dark. Dress for the weather and wear good walking shoes as it is outside. They do have onsite bathrooms and areas to grab a drink or a light bite.Written January 23, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- My husband and I did the World of Coca Cola exhibit while in Atlanta. It was interesting and fun. There wasn’t a ton to see beyond memorabilia and the history of Coke. We liked seeing the vault where the secret formula is kept. The real fun was the tasting room where you got to taste dozens of different Coke products from around the world including teas and sparkling waters in various flavors in addition to traditional sodas. They even had a special soda mix of the day - a blue raspberry ginger Sprite which was quite tasty. Besides all the drinks from around the world, they also had the mix-in machines like you see at some fast food restaurants which allowed you to try as many of the different combos as you want. The gift shop was huge with all sorts of cool Coke shirts, hats, and random things. We really enjoyed the experience!Written January 20, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- It just seems that anyone serious about learning more about the civil rights movement needs to visit this park. I think it's quite cool that NPS is working to preserve entire blocks of this area, not only to keep the MLK Jr aspect alive, but also to show what life was like for residents during that time. Very well done.Written December 11, 2022
- My daughter, wife and I were visiting Atlanta for the Thanksgiving holiday and decided we needed some exercise. Piedmont Park was a short walk from our hotel, so we spent about 1.5 hours walking around. I liked walking around the pond, and watching people playing volleyball, and there were plenty of paths to choose from. A little more green would have been nice, but at the end of a dry November, browned grass was to be expected.
All in all, this was a pleasant way to spend some time on a holiday morning.Written December 3, 2022
- Gorgeous but our there needs to be better sound coordination between the local and band sound techs for rock shows.
Fox Theater is a visual spectacle.
B-52s Farewell Tour and KC and the Sunshine Band
Perhaps each exhorbantly priced soft drink should come with a pair of ear plugs for concerts.
We sat Orchestra, Row W and the music was drowned out by the auditory clash.
The sound was so bad that people left. One woman was playing Solitaire during B-52s. So many people were covering their ears. We tore up face masks as makeshift earplugs.
My ears are still ringing.
The bass was so strong, it reverbed against our bodies. My chest hurt when we left.Written January 9, 2023
- What a heavy, heavy place. Right as you enter there is a lunch table sit in that you can participate in. It is a little less than 2 minutes and it is so intense. After the experience was over, I just couldn’t stop the tears from coming and rolling down my cheeks. This place is needed to know how horrible things used to be so we never go back there again. We still have a long way to go, but we can not go back. I learned so much about about so many different civil rights leaders. It’s not a very big museum but will take you at least a couple of hours. I recommend every human being to stop by and educate themselves.Written January 23, 2023
- I am happy to see that an Olympic park is used a real park in the city. Usually all sites were abandoned after the games and it was a waste. Nice statues for reminders.Written December 1, 2022
- Panda Bears and Gorillas. That's all I have to say. Only 2 things that made this worthwhile. The other animals were nice but you can see them at every zoo. The children's section is a rip-off and not worth going to.Written January 17, 2023
- Astounding culmination of artifacts, photos and memorabilia. Park in the garage. The soup nazi parking attendant will get after you if you park in front. There is a coffee shop. The exhibits are very well done and loved the cyclorama move to this location. Amazing grounds that are not to be missed and the historic cabin and barn is terrific with native plants.Written January 8, 2023
- I’ll start by saying I never voted for president Carter, but over the years I have come to respect the man. History will be kind to him for all he’s done for others. A man of peace and servitude. This library and museum should be part of the public schools places to visit. I recommend this place to everyone it will make you feel good to have gone.Written December 13, 2022
- Original goal was a "couple" trip, but were glad to take our 8yo... and he loved it! We told him ahead that the white marble statues were beyond extraordinary... and he quickly got in the head space to enjoy it all. In fact, he came up with the idea to type a few notes of observations into my phone. Kept a nice pace... and that way there is more to see another time. Be sure to get a cup of Refuge Coffee at the corner. And we ended our daily with Tandoori Pizza at Colony Square. Can't wait to repeat the whole day!Written January 10, 2023
- My husband and son were obsessed with this place...if I had one major complaint, it's that I couldn't extract them! But, even without loving football, I found much to love about the interactive exhibits!Written January 10, 2023
- Oakland Cemetery is a beautiful place to stroll through while taking in some local history and natural beauty. I have visited many times while in Atlanta and always enjoy the scenery, including the historic mausoleums, the funereal symbols and art, and stained glass windows. Despite the many visits, and because the cemetery is so big, I still come across new sites to enjoy! Occasionally I have taken one of their walking tours and found them very informative. I'm a bit envious that I don't live near enough to attend more tours or their seasonal events with costumes and music and such. Or maybe even picnic (as I've seen small groups doing)!! On this latest visit, we noted that they are renovating the Bell Tower and that the walkways are in better shape.Written October 20, 2022
- I drove my daughters all the way from Ohio to see Lizzo here. They loved it!! Overall our entire experience in Atlanta was great.
We stayed at the Hampton Inn downtown just a few minutes away - turns out it’s a short and safe 10 minute walk to the hotel from the arena so I didn’t have to fight crowds picking them up (they’re college age so I didn’t go). I was nervous about them walking back at night and was ready to leap into action if they felt unsafe, but they felt very comfortable when they started walking. The area was well lit with lots of people Walking back in the direction of the hotel from the show. Traffic was crazy when I dropped them off. The hotel staff told me they could walk back safely, so that saved me from being stuck in gridlock for two hours after the concert ended.Written November 6, 2022
