Sightseeing in Atlanta - what to see. Complete travel guide

Everyone knows Atlanta as a prospective and fast-developing city. There are not so many newcomers here comparing to Chicago or New York, but each year more people come to see Atlanta and so the number of entertainment centers increases as well. Wide choice of museums, galleries, theatres, concert halls and wonderful architectural buildings make this city interesting and attractive for travellers.
Atlanta has a lot of amazing places. It would be nice to walk there unaccompanied by a guide, slowly examining the authentic sights. Quiet area of Cabbagetown is well known to fans of street … Open
Buckhead region remains the main trading district of the city. Here you will find numerous boutiques, shops, restaurants, bars, discos, and night clubs. Best cafes and several interesting shops can be also found in Little Five Points district. The most entertaining spot here is Georgia Aquarium that is 158 thousand sq. m. big. Here you will find tenths of thousands of marine animals’ types from all parts of the world and over 500 types of fishes. The aquarium is always crowded and full of people as more people come to see it than it can store, so the right way is to purchase a pass that gives you a permission to visit the aquarium on specified days.
There are two museums in the historical part of the city. Both of them are surrounded by wonderful gardens. These are Syon house museum that is famous by its historical exhibitions and the house-museum of Margaret Mitchell will provide you with some very interesting facts about the history of Georgia. The Museum of Design is one of the most popular and best cultural facilities in Atlanta. The museum constantly organizes exhibitions concerning fashion, graphics, architecture and art. During the excursion in this museum visitors will be able to see how big the contribution of modern designers and planners to our modern life is. The best place for rest close to nature is Stone Mountain Park that is full of visitors either in daytime or at night. This is a perfect place for a picnic and having some rest among magnificent trees. Evening is the time for an amazing laser show that traditionally attracts many visitors. Copyright
