Exploring Georgia’s capital city in your Atlanta rental car
Georgia's state capital is a beautiful city with a rich history. Atlanta is known for its connection to the arts, and is considered the birthplace of the Civil Rights Movement. The city's thriving business district is home to great restaurants, gorgeous architecture and plenty of things to do. Jump in to your Atlanta rental car and enjoy this city's attractions and southern hospitality.
See a show
Fans of the theater can see shows of all sorts in Atlanta. Do you find your bliss in Shakespeare? Head to The New American Shakespeare Tavern. Not only does this theater company perform the Bard of Avon's comedies, tragedies and histories, but it also features other classic plays like "The Crucible." Shows start with a dinner and offer dessert at intermission. Those looking for something a little less traditional should check out Dad's Garage Theater Company. This irreverent improv comedy troupe uses audience suggestions and participation, so no two shows are alike. Its "Cage Match" shows pit two groups of improvisers against one another to see who comes out the funniest of all, and its elimination challenge comes down to the last actor or actress standing.
Indulge your passions
College sports enthusiasts can hop into their Atlanta rental car and head out to the College Football Hall of Fame. Check out the helmet wall in the Quad, which features over 765 helmets from college football teams. Next, you can go to the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl Skill Zone, a must-do for anyone looking to uncover their hidden gridiron talents. You can live out all of your football fantasies when you kick a field goal, throw like a quarterback and complete a challenging obstacle course.
Those who enjoy a fizzy beverage will want to hit the World of Coca-Cola, an interactive, multimedia experience that celebrates the popular drink invented right in Atlanta. You can learn about the soda's history, recipe and bottling process, and sample over 100 Coca-Cola beverages from around the world.
Channel your inner zoologist
You can see all manner of animals at the Georgia Aquarium and Zoo Atlanta. In the aquarium, you can take a look at fish, marine mammals and other undersea creatures. You can even have an animal encounter, where you'll meet and play with penguins, help train an otter or meet, touch and feed a dolphin. Zoo Atlanta is home to the only two giant pandas born in the U.S., twins Mei Lun and Mei Huan. It also holds members of over 200 different species, making it a great destination for animal lovers.
