We visited Piedmont Park after having a walk down Peachtree Street in Atlanta. It is easily accessible from there and clearly signposted from the street so you'll have no problems finding it, although it is downhill so bear in mind that you'll have to walk back up the hill afterwards! it was actually recommended by our guidebook as a place to visit and I'd recommend it too as it is a lovely large green space in the city.You can walk around all the areas of the park easily enough although we decided to be proper tourists and rent a tandem bike to explore. There is a place right outside the park gates called Skate Escape where you can rent skates and bikes by the hour and day for a reasonabl...Read More

I don't generally go to a lot of zoos, but when we were in the states, there was a lot of talk about Zoo Atlanta because of their brand new panda babies.

We picked this airport for its convenience to Atlanta airport and for the excellent reviews we found on it. The reviews were certainly justified because the hotel was very nice and reasonably priced. They offer lots of things that make it an ideal choice for someone to stay near the airport.The hotel has free parking and a free shuttle bus to the airport. There is a shopping mall nearby with lots of food options and, if you ask nicely, the shuttle bus driver will drop you off there for free too! The freeness doesn't end there either because wi fi is free, as is the breakfast (which is delicious and includes lots of hot and cold options) and the coffee is free all day too. There is a safe i...Read More
