Atlanta travel tips

1) Be touched by giant pandas inhabiting Atlanta zoo

Head to 800 Cherokee avenue in Atlanta to visit one of four USA zoos hosting giant pandas. It used to be known as a travelling circus that broke down in the Atlanta suburb in 1889. And what can be better than a giant panda? Right, giant panda twins!

2) Spot Martin Luther King's collection in The Centre for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta

Located on 100 Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard in Atlanta, The Centre for Civil and Human Rights is a relatively new place. As you can understand from its name, the museum is very thought-provoking. It preserves the crucial historical events of the Civil Rights Movement in the city, including Morehouse College Martin Luther King, Jr. Collection.

3) Have a stroll around Decatur in Atlanta and see its business life

Make sure to start at least one morning in Decatur. It is a charming place to see old (like, 100-200-year-old) mansions and historic brick homes, giant trees, and large, grand lawns that do not exist even in LA. Supplement your walk with a cup of coffee from Carroll Street Cafe.
