An integral part of Atlanta is Centennial Olympic Park. Atlanta is quite spread out, but if there is one area that could be the center of Atlanta, Centennial Olympic Park is the perfect candidate. The park is located at the intersection of Downtown and Midtown, right off I-75/85 as it veers to the southeast. The park itself is a large green space in the middle of the city with a fountain for kids to play in and plenty of sidewalks to enjoy the views. Most of all, however, Centennial Olympic Park is the heart of Atlanta’s attractions. The World of Coca-Cola, the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, the Georgia Aquarium, SkyView Atlanta, the CNN Studios, and Philips Arena are all located in the park, making it convenient to visit several of Atlanta’s best attractions within the same park. Several of Atlanta’s other premier attractions, and a plethora of restaurants, are located within walking distance of the park. The College Football Hall of Fame, the Georgia Dome, and Underground Atlanta are less than ten blocks away, while Sweet Auburn Market, the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site, Bobby Dodd Stadium, and the Fox Theatre are 12-15 blocks away. If you’re visiting Atlanta, make sure to put Centennial Olympic Park on your “must-see” list.
