  • This makes a nice twofer with Hammonds House, if you have time for both. It used to be racist. The efforts to keep it alive and transcend its racism may interest some folks  more »

  • Wren's Nest is among the most beautiful surviving historic Southern homes. It has been meticulously preserved and maintained, and to visit is to travel back in time. However, it is a hidden gem, becau...  more »

  • I went for the Saturday storytelling and house tour, and was delighted far beyond my expectations. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and unhurried. The storyteller was jawdroppingly good. The tour guide radiated with love for the building and its former occupants. I highly recommend a visit on Saturday when the storyteller is there.
  • This is one of many of Atlanta's old early 20th century homes. This home once belonged to Uncle Remus, author of works like "The Tar Baby" and "Brer Rabbit". This hone is now a museum and plays host to a number of events, including a Gatsby Lawn Party (which was the purpose of my visit).
  • Great place for kids! Story telling is the best.
  • Had a wonderful talk and tour with the docent. Learned a lot about Joel Harris, his home, his background and what inspired his stories of Brent Rabbit and Uncle Remus. A great way to spend a couple of hours.
  • History, prestige and heritage. Check out for new events and explore the West End!

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.
