Atlanta is a modern city with a rich history. It's a place to relax and have fun amid some of the country's varied history and culture. But sometimes it's also a quick business trip. We can help with your private charter aircraft needs for each.
You'll find lots of things to do and experience in Atlanta if you're heading there for fun. Below are just a few, some you may heard of, others are less well known, but they all are certain to entertain.
Centennial Olympic Park
This could be a fantastic day trip! Centennial Olymipic Park is in between the Georgia Aquarium and the CNN Center. It covers 21 acres and features lush paths of grass, artwork, pools and fountains. The park was originally built for the 1996 Olympic Games and was a centerpiece of the festivities; now, it's one of the most popular areas of the city.
The Fountain of Rings are popular with everyone and kids are sure to love it. There are four water shows a day, during which the jets are "choreographed" to various songs.
Stone Mountain Park
Stone Mountain Park boasts a variety of attractions that are perfect for the whole family, but many visit for the Confederate Memorial Carving. It is the largest high relief sculpture in the world.
Stone Mountain Park includes a wildlife preserve, a cable car ride, two golf courses, several restaurants and an antebellum plantation that is open to tour. On summer evenings the Lasershow Spectacular blazes the mountain's carving and the night sky with images representing the South.
This is one of the world's largest aquarium. More than 100,000 animals and over 500 species are represented in the six different galleries. It’s a day-long trip to see it all. Housing everything from freshwater animals in its Southern Company River Scout gallery to a 164,000-gallon reef habitat in its Tropical Diver exhibit, the aquarium offers an incredibly rich experience of marine life.
Mercedes Benz Park
Atlanta United of the MLS went to the playoffs in its inaugural year and shattered attendance records. There are two new stadiums, and the Atlanta Falcons were one win away from being crowned with the NFL’s highest honor. Atlanta is a great sports town.
The shiny new Mercedes-Benz Stadium is home to both of Arthur Blank’s teams, the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United. The stadium has its own art gallery.
Blind Willie’s / Northside Tavern
Blind Willie’s has a Cajun feel and Northside Tavern is more of a roadhouse vibe, but these two mainstays have a lot in common. These are old fashioned blues bars that are small, dark, and loud—and full of character. Blues greats visit both of their tiny stages. At Northside, watch regular Beverly “Guitar” Watkins, 77, play her guitar behind her head. And don’t miss local favorite Francine Reed sing “Wild Women (Don’t Get the Blues)” at Blind Willie’s.
Margaret Mitchell House
Shortly after Margaret Mitchell left her job as a reporter for the Atlanta Journal in the mid-1920s, she sat down at a desk at her ground-floor apartment on Peachtree Street—she and her husband, John Marsh, affectionately referred to the unit as “the dump”—and began writing the bulk of a Southern soap opera that became just as much a part of Atlanta’s DNA as Coca-Cola. Surrounded by hand-me-down furniture and walls she painted herself, the writer dreamed up a tale of antebellum belles and debonair Lotharios who frankly, my dear, did not give a damn. Now owned by the Atlanta History Center, the apartment building stands as a literary events space and a museum to Mitchell, her most famous novel, her lesser-known works, and her philanthropy.
