Suggestions where to stay/eat/play midweek in September?

Hey everyone,

Myself and two other friends are attending the Tomorrowworld festival and are planning to stay and explore Atlanta from Sept 29-Oct 1. We've done some research but would like some advice and/or further insight on things we should do or see.

Being that we are in town from a Monday to Wednesday kind of limits our options, but from what we have gathered:

-It appears Midtown seems like a nice central place to stay with restaurants and bars all in walking distance. Is there any specific area in Midtown to stay hotel wise?

-We really want to check out the aquarium and wanted to go to six flags (unfortunately only open on the weekends in September), is there anything else fun worth doing? We do not mind having to take a cab wherever

-Is there preseason NBA basketball on at this time or any other sporting events we could attend?

Thanks in advance

In midtown, almost any hotel would be good, but check the reviews. I'd rather stay within a few blocks in each direction of 10th.

Re Things to Do, as miketeresa said, there's a tab that lists all of the options. See what appeals, and we can help if you have more specific questions.

For sports, check the team websites.

I prefer Uber to cabs, especially in Atlanta.

Hi,

I personally enjoyed visiting the World of Coca Cola, the Aquarium and the CNN building. You can also try the Zoo. If you are into culture you can try the museums (High Museum of Art or the Natural History museum).
