    I'm glad to say I have gone, but it is not enough to see and learn to go more than once. Now I would only return if I had a specific event.  more »

    Very good Presidential Museum. Smaller that many others but good sinopsis of his presidency. Beautiful grounds especially in spring. Worth the visit!

    It's a little on the small side, but it's worth the visit for the price, $8 a ticket. A nice documentary starts you off, and then you can go and enjoy all the artifacts, plus there is a nice garden outside. A modest gift shop, but you can buy branded pencils for $.25 and postcards, so it's a good place to pick up small gifts for your friends back home.

    Very nice, somewhat relaxed compared to the formal and grandiose scale of the Reagan library. Amazing man.

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.
