With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, it’s time to start planning how to spend your holiday weekend in Atlanta. The World of Coca-Cola, the Georgia Aquarium and ice skating in Centennial Olympic Park are three great options of things to do during the holiday weekend.
World of Coca-Cola
Located at Pemberton Place® and open seven days a week, with the exception of Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day, the World of Coca-Cola houses over 1,000 artifacts related to the history of this world-famous beverage on display for visitors to enjoy. Features of the World of Coca-Cola include The Coca-Cola Loft, Happiness Factory Theater, Vault of Secret Formula and more!
The Georgia Aquarium, open 365 days a year, is also located at Pemberton Place® across from Centennial Olympic Park. See sharks and manta rays at Ocean Voyager, watch dolphins perform a dynamic show or tour an interactive gallery featuring sea turtles, lionfish and much more.
Ice Skating in Centennial Olympic Park
Open November 19 - January 23, ice skating at Centennial Olympic Park is a must when visiting Atlanta in the winter! A skating session at the site of the 1996 Summer Olympic Games is $10 which includes the skate rental. Take in the beauty of the downtown while enjoying this family-friendly outdoor activity in Atlanta.
All of these attractions, located in downtown Atlanta, are a short drive or a quick MARTA trip away from our accommodations in Buckhead.
