Historic Site Nature / Park
Built for the 1996 summer games, Centennial Olympic Park hosts millions of visitors every year on its wide lawns and walking paths. Many visitors come for concerts at the park's amphitheater, but you'll also want to check out the Fountain of Rings and the Skyview Ferris wheel. Be sure to look down as you walk through the park--the bricks beneath your feet are engraved with messages of people who donated money to build the park.

  • Awesome fireworks display and live show. I didn't care for the huge crowd, but it was expected. I enjoyed the salute to the soldiers and prior service. I didn't give 5 🌟 because someone was smoking​ weed, and someone e thought it would be funny to set off fireworks in a crowded parking garage. It sent people scrambling for cover. It could have been a bad ending to an otherwise pleasant evening.
  • Kids had a blast playing in the water at the Olympic rings. The playground is small but there are 2 of them. My kids enjoy playing there as well. The open field has plenty of space to run around and play or have a picnic.
  • One of the busiest landmark in Atlanta. It was well mantained and clean. Parking fee is downside but as usual for a downtown area. There was some work in progress on the ground but it wasn't disruptive. It is surrounded by Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, CNN Center and Philips arena, so you can spend all day within walking distance. I did see memories for 1996 Olympics. But I felt (myself) that it wasn't fanfare or celebrated. It looked like it has been left alone for entertainment of visitor. Just a thought!
  • Beautiful park. Great for adults and children. Has water fountain that you can play in. Also has dancing water to music. Paths to walk & playground. Parking is expensive
  • Amazing scenery, clean and nice sculptures. The nicest thing in Atlanta and the view is priceless. Such a beautiful park and I don't think I have been to a place as amazing at the Olympic Park in Atlanta.

Where to stay in Atlanta

Most of Atlanta's top hotels cluster in a downtown area with an easy-to-remember name--the Hotel District. The city's political and commercial hub, this area offers quick walking access to most major attractions. Another good area for boutique hotels and rental apartments is the ever-expanding Midtown, with proximity to most of Atlanta's big-name museums and theaters. If you're looking to save some money on accommodations, explore options in the more economical chain hotels outside downtown; from there, you can take the city's public transport to centrally located attractions and activities.
