There are so many things to do in Atlanta—as a native Georgian it’s one of my favorite cities! But with six people in our family we have to watch our budget carefully when taking advantage of all that Atlanta has to offer. Here are some of our favorite things to do in Atlanta, along with ways that we save! I’d love to hear your ideas of what’s fun to do in Atlanta?
*World of Coca-Cola: Save 100% on your ticket by using points from Coca-Cola products entered at the My Coke Rewards Web site. Print the voucher from your email, bring to the ticket booth and spend the afternoon inside sampling Coke products!
*Georgia Aquarium: My kids can spend hours watching the fish and the jellies—and guests can get free admission on their birthday!
*Centennial Olympic Park: Visit the fountain rings and Centennial Olympic Park with a swimsuit and watch the kids have a blast! It’s free and a great way to cool off on a hot Atlanta afternoon!
*Atlanta Braves Games: I bet you have a favorite Brave—just like my kids do, but visiting Turner Field can be expensive! Not many people know this, but you can get into the stadium for just $1! There are about 180 Skyline seats sold for each game. You’ll need to gather at the ticket window prior to the gates opening, pay cash for the number of tickets you need and immediately enter the stadium. Go to batting practice, grab some autographs, and sign up at the Aramark Designated Driver booth for a chance to win a jersey and to get a coupon for a free Coca-Cola.
*Six Flags: If you didn’t use up all your My Coke Reward points to visit the World of Coca-Cola for free, use them to grab one-day adult admission tickets free of charge. You can even cash in your Coke points and grab a season pass to Six Flags! You can also use the Coke points to save $3 on the unlimited refill Six Flags cup! No need to pay full price for a visit to Six Flags!
*Zoo Atlanta: Who wants to pay full price to visit the zoo? I have an animal-lover son, and the zoo is a wonderful place for him to learn! To visit the zoo free of charge, head to your local library! Check out the Zoo Atlanta DVD and return it after watching! You’ll be given a certificate for free admission for 2 adults and 2 children visit Zoo Atlanta free of charge!
*Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site: You can visit this historic site year-round and learn about Martin Luther King, Jr., and his impact on the U.S. and the world. It’s free of charge and you can get free tickets to visit the home in which he grew up inside the Freedom Hall at the King Center! You can also visit Ebeneezer Baptist Church, where King and his father pastored. All free—all in Atlanta, within walking distance. Make a day of this one!
