Visiting Atlanta & Northern Georgia

The temperature is rising in northern Georgia – and not just on the thermometer. Excitement surrounding this season’s special events, festivals, big-league sports, and outdoor activities is reaching a fever pitch and visitors are invited to join in the fun. From the urban attractions of Atlanta and Athens to the rural charms of Helen and Hartwell, there are plenty of ways to get a taste of the Peach State this summer.

In addition to a wealth of historic cultural attractions like the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, Piedmont Park, and the Fox Theatre, Atlanta is the proud home of Coca-Cola headquarters. A celebration of the world’s most famous soft drink, the World of Coca-Cola quenches visitors’ thirst for knowledge with memorabilia, films, and interactive exhibits, and, of course, plenty of Coke.

On June 20th, the 2015 Atlanta Summer Beerfest allows visitors to soak up suds and sunshine alike. Held at the Masquerade, a historic former excelsior mill, the event invites beer lovers to sample an abundance of craft creations while enjoying food and live music. The pours flow at 4 p.m.

To sports fans, summer means Major League Baseball, and the Atlanta Braves’ 2015 season is underway. Atlanta visitors can enjoy America’s Pastime at Turner Field through the end of September. This year’s key matchups include a three-game series against the Washington Nationals, June 30th through July 2nd, and another against the San Francisco Giants, August 3rd through 5th.

Art lovers visiting Athens this summer are in for a treat. From June 26th through the 28th, the 2015 AthFest Music & Arts Festival transforms the downtown area into a celebration of the city’s burgeoning arts and cultural scene. Over the course of the weekend, more than 100 bands provide the soundtrack as attendees browse local art showcases and markets throughout venues like the 40 Watt Club and Caledonia Lounge. Bring the whole family – there will be special events and activities just for kids.

Music is in the air over Decatur on August 15th. The 2015 Decatur BBQ, Blues, & Bluegrass Festival fills Harmony Park with sweet and savory meats, as well as the sounds of performers like the award-winning Georgia legend Beverly “Guitar” Watkins and the King Bees.
