Atlanta, Georgia: Home Of The Underground Mall
My first trip to America was well on its way and I had decided that Atlanta, Georgia was going to be my home away from home for the next month. This wonderful metropolis is definitely filled with some down home southern hospitality and personality. When I arrived at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, I was totally shock by its enormous size. Since it is the busiest airport in the United States, I figured it would be extremely crowded, but it was so well ran that everyone and everything was moving along just fine.
Since I am a huge Coca-Cola fan, I thought a tour of the “World of Coca-Cola” was definitely a must. The guide was very sweet and went out of her way to make everyone feel at home. I learned so much history on this iconic brand of soda, including things that I never knew and it left me begging for more. The samples were absolutely delightful and one thing that I must say is, it tastes different, when it fresh off of the assembly line.
My next day trip was to the famous “Jimmy Carter Library and Museum”. The 39th president of the United States, Jimmy Carter has always been one of my biggest idols. This was a guided tour that was an absolute pleasure from the very beginning and all the way to the very end. You must know that Jimmy was born and raised in Georgia and he is a former peanut farmer, now isn’t that something. The library was definitely an extraordinary site that was filled with some very in formidable American history.
Where To Stay
I had decided that I was going to splurge on my sleeping accommodations, just because I was in America. I picked the Stone Hurst Place Bed & Breakfast, which is located on Piedmont Avenue in northeast Georgia. The reason I chose this delightful, historical bed and breakfast is because it is located within the vicinity of the Georgia Aquarium. I was treated like a king and I must recommend this lovely place to everyone that is planning a trip to Atlanta, Georgia.
After a night of luxury and sleep at the Stone Hurst, I was on my way to the Atlanta Aquarium. My dolphin encounter was definitely an amazing adventure. I was escorted backstage, where I got to pet my very first dolphin. He was a friendly booger and I was totally surprised with how well the trainers connected to the mammals. I was also given a photograph of the experience, which was taken by a photographer; I will definitely treasure it forever.
Before I knew it, my trip was coming to a close. I would recommend this southern city for anyone that is traveling to America. The citizens are very friendly and welcoming, which can be difficult to find. If you get the opportunity, which I did, you should schedule a tour of the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. There I got to witness of a reenactment of soldiers preparing for war, what an extraordinary adventure.
