How to Spend 2 Days in Atlanta

How to Spend 2 Days in Atlanta

With two days in Atlanta, you can pick off a few of the city’s landmarks and soak up the high-frequency energy. Go from classic Southern sites to the cutting edge of Atlanta culture in a flash, then circle back for some civil rights era history. Here’s how to make the most of two days in Atlanta.

Day 1: Silver Screens and Hotlanta Wildlife

Morning: Ready to roll? Start by finding the places that catapulted Atlanta onscreen, whether that’s blockbuster films, Stranger Things, or The Walking Dead. Scouts are famous for picking the coolest spots in the city, so even if you’re not a movie buff it’s a great way to get your bearings.

Afternoon: Pick one of the city’s two world-class wildlife destinations for an afternoon with the animals. With giant pandas and an African rain forest, Zoo Atlanta is a longtime favorite, while the Georgia Aquarium brings beluga whales right into downtown—consider snagging your tickets in advance to save time.

Night: Now that you’ve worked up an appetite, dive into local food culture, which includes down-home cooking and cutting-edge cuisine. A food tour is a great way to get a little bit of everything.

Day 2: History, Landmarks, and Atlanta After Dark

Morning: If you’re visiting during the hot summer months, take advantage of the cooler morning hours with an Atlanta history tour, visiting landmarks that stretch from the Civil War to the civil rights era. True history buffs should consider a private tour, as it’s a great way to start one-on-one conversations about events that interest you most.

Afternoon: Choose another of Atlanta’s headlining attractions for an afternoon in the air-conditioning: The CNN world headquarters are fascinating for news hounds, while the World of Coca-Cola tells the intriguing story of Coke’s secret formula.

Night: With one more night in Atlanta, dabble in the city’s searing nightlife—opt for a pub crawl or bar tour for an insider’s look at the scene.

Private Atlanta Historical Homes Tour

Private Atlanta Historical Homes Tour

star-4.5
26
Peek into Atlanta's history. Cruise through the affluent Buckhead community, learning its history, view upscale mansions. We also drive through historical Ansley and Grant Park area viewing its stately homes. Most buildings were built between the neighborhood's founding in 1882 and the first decades of the 20th century. Grant Park contains the largest remaining area of Victorian architecture in Atlanta. We also visit inside LP Grant Mansion, the oldest home in Atlanta. The three-story, Italianate mansion was built in 1856 by Lemuel Pratt Grant (1817-1893), a city pioneer, railroad magnate and philanthropist who donated 100 acres to the city of Atlanta for Grant Park. Surviving the Civil War, the house was the 1902 birthplace of golf legend Robert Tyre “Bobby” Jones and its preservation was, at one time, a passion of Margaret Mitchell, the author of Gone with the Wind.
