Everyday Atlanta for Visitors
It's great to get a feel for the local flavor. Luckily, there is no shortage of adventure. Here are some great ideas to get your group out of the hotel and into the streets.
- Bike Tours ATL: Centralized in the Fourth Ward, just east of downtown, these quaint bike tours offer a very localized view of Atlanta. The rides are leisurely and a family-friendly jaunt throughout the city.
- Atlanta Food Walks: Nothing on Earth beats a Southern dish. One tour is based downtown, taking the group on a leisurely stroll; the other is focused just south in Grant Park, combining a rich past of food trade and the modern evolution of food.
- Beer from Here: Whoever said downtime between meetings had to be uneventful? This brewery tour will bring out the hop-lovers from everywhere. With two types of tours offered (a 3-hour or 5-hour tour), both are guaranteed to be a good time.
Sports of Atlanta
Peach City is more than just history and food. The sports teams here are spectacularly good and have some of the most die-hard fans. Your attendees will feel the camaraderie!
- Mercedes-Benz Stadium: Home to both the NFL's Falcons and Atlanta United FC, this state-of-the-art stadium is a great venue for watching the game or just getting lost in the architecture. Join lifelong Falcons fans as they do the Dirty Bird endzone dance for every touchdown or just tailgate at The Home Depot Backyard!
- Atlanta United FC: Founded in 2014, this team has already won the MLS Cup and made a name for themselves. Their supporters, The Footie Mob, have wild get-togethers sporting the team's colors (black and red) and have a serious sub-culture throughout the city.
- Atlanta Braves: With three World Series and countless pennant titles, the Braves have been a fan favorite throughout the country. Calling the new Truist Park their home, the park features unique retail and delicious food options for groups as well.
