Local Area Overview
Georgia Aquarium - 8.1 million gallons of water in one place is straight up cool. Even cooler are whale sharks, manta ray, and concession-stand beverages. Luckily, you don't have to choose between these great things, as they're all included at the Georgia Aquarium, which (by the way) also happens to be largest aquarium in the world. Whoa!
Underground Atlanta - Tailor made for the late night wanderer, Underground Atlanta features bars, shops, and restaurants and is the only place in Georgia where you can legally finish your tonic on the rocks until 4 AM, though wisdom doesn't advise such behavior on a regular basis. But don’t worry, conservative night-lifers—with Civil War architecture and a history nearly as extensive, Underground Atlanta serves more than just late night, tonic drinking party animals.
High Museum of Art - Founded in 1905, the High Museum of Art is likely older than you are, which makes it your elder, which means you owe it respect. Part of the Woodruff Arts Center (largest in the Southeast U.S.), the museum permanently holds over 11,000 works of art, which is likely more pieces of art than you own personally, or have seen in your lifetime. Included in the collection are works from Claude Monet, Martin Johnson Heade, Dorothea Lange and countless others. Respect.
