The Best Summer Break Activities in Atlanta

The summer is heating up – making it the perfect time of year to explore Atlanta! Nicknamed the “city in a forest,” beautiful trees and rolling hills balance the urban sprawl of Georgia’s state capital. The city has also recently earned the moniker “Hollywood of the South” due to its bustling film industry. No matter what you call it, Atlanta has many unique experiences perfect for taking a summer break:

CNN Studio Tour

CNN, the first all-news television channel in the United States, calls Atlanta home. A visit to the city is not complete without a tour of their world headquarters. The network offers several different tour options, including a Behind the Scenes Tour, a VIP Tour, and even an HLN Morning Express Tour with Robin Meade. Click here to learn more.

Georgia Aquarium

At the time of its opening in 2005, the Georgia Aquarium was the largest in the world. Located in downtown Atlanta, this enormous aquarium houses more than one hundred thousand animals and is the only aquarium outside of Asia with whale sharks. Don’t forget to cool off in the splash zone of the AT&T Dolphin Celebration and watch the acrobatic antics of the bottlenose dolphins! Click here to learn more.

World of Coca-Cola

Delve into the history of the iconic Coca-Cola company in this Atlanta based museum.  Learn the legend of the “secret formula” and get a behind the scenes view of the bottling line. Ever wonder about different Coke products offered around the world? Over one hundred different beverages are available to taste at the World of Coca-Cola. Click here to learn more. 

Six Flags Over Georgia

Everything You Need To Know When Visiting Hudson Yards

Hudson Yards is the newest neighborhood in New York City. Featuring more than 100 shops, restaurants, art venues, and attractions, Hudson Yards is now the nation’s largest private development and one of most complex construction projects in New York history. We’re taking a closer look at what makes this destination unique and why it is a great fit for leisure during your next AMA Center meeting in New York City.

Location and Transportation

Hudson Yards is located between 10th and 12th Avenues, from West 30th to West 34th St. There is easy access to commuter rail service, the subway, the West Side Highway, the Lincoln Tunnel, and ferries along the Hudson River.

This new complex was built on 28 acres over a working rail yard. That not only explains why the construction project was so complex but also helps one to understand why Hudson Yards is so unique.

Shop, Dine, and Explore

Apparel, jewelry, and beauty items are just a few of the types of shops in Hudson Yards. Everything from shoe stores to brand name eyewear awaits your browsing.

Dining options range from simple coffee shops to finer dining for your evening enjoyment. A wine bar and ice cream shop are just two other options to discover while visiting Hudson Yards.

Visitors can enjoy a great view of the New York skyline from the Edge. Located 100 stories high, it is the highest man-made outdoor viewing area in the western hemisphere.

Public gardens, art, and cultural institutions and more provide visitors with a variety of choices in this special and unique place. We think that Hudson Yards is a must-see while visiting New York City.

AMA Executive Conference Centers

The AMA New York Conference Center is the largest conference center in New York City’s Time’s Square district. Featuring 90,000 square feet and 43 rooms, this center can accommodate up to 200 participants. Located in the heart of Times Square, the conference center is within blocks to many restaurants, shopping, and attractions, including those in Hudson Yards.

A favorite feature of meeting planners is the 6th-floor meeting space at the AMA New York Conference Center. A spacious lounge also overlooks Broadway, making it a perfect space for receptions and conference activities.

AMA Executive Conference Centers are also available in Atlanta, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. Each of our centers provides the essentials you need for a successful meeting or event. The centers are conveniently located close to transportation, lodging, dining, shopping, and attractions. Learn more about our centers and our services by clicking here to contact us today.
