“Need a fun option for a rainy autumn day? Head here—and have a smile. Among the many global powerhouse companies with Atlanta roots, Coca-Cola is undoubtedly the most universally known. While some may find the World of Coca-Cola an over-the-top ad for the company, approaching it with the understanding that it’s one big shameless paean to the hometown beverage maker allows for enjoyment. Don’t forget to sample the “Beverly” in “Taste It!””

Museum
“’Tis the season, y’all. Atlanta is the country’s amateur pigskin mecca, and the College Football Hall of Fame just might be the nucleus. Located across Centennial Olympic Park from the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, and Center for Civil and Human Rights, the facility is part museum and part fan-experience zone. With an indoor football field, visitors can play out their QB (and field-goal kicker) fantasies.”
