Visiting Atlanta & Northern Georgia

Atlanta commands northern Georgia as the most populous city in the state, just as the Atlanta Braves have commanded the National League East Division with one of the best records in Major League Baseball this season. Atlanta visitors can catch the Braves as they defend Turner Field in home games through the end of September.

A winning record makes a lot of enemies and the Braves aren’t short on rivals. Witness them battle the Phillies in a three-game series, June 16th through 18th, or see them slug it out against their most storied foes, the New York Mets, on July 1st and 2nd. Attend Friday, July 4th’s game against the Diamondbacks and stick around afterward for the 4th of July All-American Fireworks Spectacular 2014, presented by Georgia Lottery.

Not a sports fan? Skip the game and celebrate our nation’s independence at downtown’s Centennial Olympic Park. Staring at noon, food and fun fill the park before nightfall brings a brilliant Fourth of July fireworks display, combining with the nearby show at Turner Field to illuminate the sky and the skyscrapers below.

Beer lovers visiting Atlanta this season won’t want to miss the 2014 Atlanta Summer Beer Festival. The outdoor event takes place on June 21st at the Masquerade, just east of downtown, boasting a selection of 150 beers and two stages of live music and entertainment. The pours go from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Just over an hour east of Atlanta, Athens maintains an event calendar brimming with unique ways to have fun this summer. Now through June 9th, the State Botanical Garden of Georgia invites you to exercise your inner “backyard biologist.” Beekeeping for Beginners is a workshop on the basics of beekeeping, including the harvesting of honey and wax.

Then, the 2014 Athfest Music & Arts Festival takes over historic downtown Athens, June 20th through 22nd. The best performers from the well-known Athens music scene perform throughout the weekend, while artists display their pieces at the open-air Artist Market and the little ones run, play, and dance to music just for them in the Kidsfest area.

Visitors to the far north of the state pay tribute to the region’s great struggle during the Civil War. Fort Oglethorpe and the surrounding area are home to many of the war’s most important battlefields. At 9:30 a.m. on each third Saturday of the month through October, Biking the Battlefield invites history buffs to join in on an educational ride through the Chickamauga Battlefield. Limited bicycles and helmets are provided.
