The Ga aquarium for sure! You can also grab a bite to eat there and across from that is the world of coca cola!

That’d take up 8 hours 🙂

Do Marta if you can (the train) and allow 1 hour time for transit on Marta.

If you feel like shopping, Lenox Mall or Perimeter Mall would be a great places too!

Thanks Joey…there are a chain of awesome breakfast spots called “J. Christophers'” and I am not sure where the closest one is to that area, but google it. 

If you go there and are able to find one kinda close, do check out their Eggs Christopher (their version of eggs benedict) with friend green tomatoes on the english muffin!  Awesome.  My son loves it.

Def plan everything and see which marta stops at what.  Marta can take you directly to the airport and also to a spot not too far from the aquarium and world of coke.  The seafood place nearby at CNN Center is McCormick and Schmidt (sp?).  That’s good (not breakfasty though).

Hey Joey,

I recommend this link to look over. It’s 10 big places to visit that you can get to by Marta. Atlanta is not really big on public transportation (read: everyone has to have a car to pretty much get anywhere) but since you are here for such a short time MARTA will def get you to some of the cool spots in downtown and midtown.

If your in atlanta on a Sunday for breakfast, check out cafe 458. They serve an amazing Sunday brunch and is pretty easy to get to with MARTA. Any other day of the week and I would say J Christophers as well.

Hope this helps and enjoy your brief time in the ATL!
