The High Museum of Art in Atlanta is a great way to spend an afternoon in Atlanta. They have many interesting permanent exhibits, as well as limited engament exhibits. It does cost to get in, but you can become a friend of the museum to save money. I love the open, airy feeling of the building, and it is in a prime location for sight seers and people ready to spend a day in Atlanta.
The Center for Puppetry Arts is a very interesting place both for children and for adults alike. They have children's shows, and they also have some shows geared towards adults. I have taken my first grade students on a few field trips there, and they have always been a lot of fun. They puppeteers even show you how they put on the show when they are done. They also hold workshops for children. The prices tend to be a bit high, so be prepared!
The World of Coke is a very interesting museum. It has many unique pieces of coke memorabilia, as well as Coke items from around the world. They price for admission is fairly high, so it is the kind of place you want to go to only once or twice in a lifetime. In the top level there are samples of various coke products, and a whole room full of fountains dispensing coke products from different countries. It is quite a challenge to try them all!
The Spa at Chateau Elan is so relaxing and peaceful. They have a variety of massage and beauty packages that you can choose from, as well as offering personal trainers. The atmosphere of the spa is very luxurious, and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The price for a day at the spa is very high, but it does include a delicious lunch. It is worth every penny you spend!
The Fernbank Science center is a very fascinating place to visit for both children and adults. They have many exhibits that you will not see other places. They also offer field trips for school age children, and can teach about a variety of different science subjects. I love the hands on area where children can use a variety of science materials, and the kids love it too!
The Margaret Michell House and Museum is a great place for fans of Gone With the Wind, as well as history buffs. They have a tour which lasts about an hour and half, and they tell you not only about the history of Gone With the Wind, but more about the life and time of Margaret Mitchell. It has a lot of memorabilia from the movie, and the gift shop is fantastic!
This museum is a lot of fun, and is a bargain on game days. Admission the the museum is actually cheaper on the days that the Braves play, and is a great excuse to get the the game early! They also have guided tours, which are a bit pricier. This museum has a lot of interesting artifacts, and even houses a train car like the Braves used to tour in. This is a must see for any baseball fan.
This salon is very nice, friendly, and knowledgeable. I have used them to do hair for special ocassions, like a wedding I was in a few years back. The hairstylist was really great at listening to my needs, and I was very pleased with the hairstyle I received. The prices at this salon are very reasonable for the quality you receive. I would recommend this salon to anyone!
I have been using this vet for my beagle for a few years now. Everyone there is very friendly, and I like that I am able to get my pet's medicine there quickly and easily. The staff is very friendly, and the doctor's are really great with animals. I have used their grooming service for baths and nail clippings, and was very pleased with how quickly they worked, and what a great job they did.
This is one of my favorite places to buy games for my young son. He has a playstation 2 and it sometimes is hard to find games for that console at a good price. Game Stop always has what I am looking for, and at a really great price. I like that you can buy used games, which helps me save money. That also means that I can get more games for my dollar. Excellent customer service!
PROS: great prices
