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.
