Standing in the Place of the Olympians: Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park

I've written about Atlanta on multiple occasions, you can see it in a little overview of our Atlanta tripour experience at Turner Fieldour trip over to the Georgia Aquarium, inside the World of Coca Cola. However, today it's all about Centennial Olympic Park. 

The last time I went to Centennial Olympic Park, it was around Christmas time and they had a HUGE Christmas tree in the center of the park. It was so beautiful and we climbed up around it to take pictures. This time, it was around the end of May/early June so there wasn't a Christmas tree but instead it was wide open. 

It was cool to see the park on a "normal" day. There were a ton of families walking around, and because it was so hot that day that there were a ton of people playing in the Olympic Ring Fountain. If you are going there during a "holiday" season, they have a ton of different events. Most recently, they had a 4th of July celebration with fireworks and performers.

During the Winter time they have holiday in the lights & ice skating in the park, and during the Spring/Summer time they have Wednesday WindDown, Music at Noon, Sweetwater 420 festival, and the 4th of July celebration. 

We had parked at our hotel and walked to the aquarium/world of coke/centennial park, however they have a ton of parking options around there. The best parking (in my opinion) if you're not staying downtown would be in the parking garage for the aquarium. This is what we did last time I was in Atlanta. 

It's crazy to think that this year marks 20 years since the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. If you have time to make it down to Atlanta during the summertime, or even any time this year I would definitely suggest going.

  1. The staff here is actually competent and friendly, unlike other places with their pretentious staff guys. The venues in NYC were magnificent and modern, and the seating was comfy. Truly, the food was heavenly and as a visitor I am glad for finding this one.


Thanks for saying hello! I love hearing from all of you & reply back to everyone as quickly as I can! xoxo
