What You Should Do with 36 Hours in Atlanta

the view from our hotel room was absolutely stunning...and we were able to people watch (a lot)
I'VE GOT BROADS IN ATLANTA...but not really. I did go visit Atlanta recently with Christian and our friend Cooper. It was a whirlwind trip in the sense that we were only there for about 48 hours, if that. Originally, we were planning to go up for the Atlanta Braves vs San Fransisco Giants game at Turner Field. Christian is a huge baseball fan and has this dream of visiting all of the baseball stadiums. This year is the last year for Turner Field since the Braves are getting a new stadium. 

We left for Atlanta around 3am on Sunday morning, and decided to take the road without tolls because it would be around the same time on the road. I wasn't feeling too hot that week so the thought of being on the road for too long made my head hurt. I decided that I wanted to drive because it would be the easiest thing for me, and keep me occupied. I'm not the best in the car when I'm not driving because I get too antsy after awhile. Usually about six hours is my limit for a trip without a massive break. 

We drove straight through, only stopping to go to the bathroom and get gas twice. It's a super easy drive from Orlando to Atlanta, though there isn't much to look at on the way. We decided to stay in downtown Atlanta at the Hilton off Courtland because it would be the most convenient for us. We drove to the hotel, and dropped the car off. We were only a few blocks away from Centennial Park, the Georgia Aquarium, the Children's Museum, and the World of Coca Cola. To say that there was a lot of stuff for us to walk to would be the biggest understatement. 

We went to the Georgia Aquarium, then the World of Coca Cola, and finally walked around Centennial Park before heading back to the hotel to freshen up. We decided to grab dinner at Mary Mac's, which was DELICIOUS. After dinner, we went and drove around Emory and the surrounding areas because it's one of the places that I'm looking at applying for graduate school. There will be separate posts on all these things because it would do too much of an injustice (and this post would be 12 pages long) if I included everything that I wanted to on this one post. After dinner, we headed back to the hotel and promptly passed out. 

The next day we went to The Varsity for lunch, before heading to Turner Field for the Braves vs Giants game. After the game, we drove straight home only making a slight detour for Bojangles for lunch/dinner. I'm so glad that I got to spend time with Christian and Cooper doing something that they both adore so much.
