This is an overview from the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau

Some highlights:

Atlanta is home to the WORLD’S largest aquarium. Check out the webcams in the exhibits on this site!

Piedmont Park is the largest park in the city. It is also home to events including

the Dogwood Festival

the Atlanta Jazz Festival — one of the largest FREE music festivals in the US

It is also the endpoint for the Peachtree Road Race, in which over 60,000 runners and walkers participate on the 4th of July.

Just north of Piedmont Park is the Atlanta Botanical Garden

A national treasure located in Atlanta is the Center for Puppetry Arts. This organization is the largest in the US dedicated to puppetry. In addition to performances (including shows for adults only) and education, there is a museum featuring over 2000 puppets from around the world and MUPPETS!
