Things to Do
In a city with so much to see and do, Buckhead is an area flush with must-see attractions and things to do, including art galleries, museums, theater, music venues, nightlife and parks.
The Atlanta History Center and LEGOLAND Discovery Center are family-friendly spots that are both entertaining and educational. Build a LEGO car of your own, or go back to the summer of 1996 in the Centennial Olympic Games Museum.
Once you’ve checked out the permanent exhibit on one of golf’s most significant figures, Bobby Jones, also at the Atlanta History Center, head a couple miles south to the golf course named in his honor. The lush 18-hole Bobby Jones Golf Course lies on some of the same grounds that hosted the Civil War’s Battle of Peachtree Creek.
Speaking of greenery, there’s no finer example than Chastain Memorial Park. At 268 acres, it is Atlanta’s largest city park. In addition to playgrounds and a swimming pool, its most alluring aspect is arguably its amphitheatre. Fans can grab a seat close to the stage or lounge on a blanket in the grass as a who’s who of national acts graces the stage each summer.
