For the last day with my family on my trip to Georgia, we went to Atlanta as I had a flight to catch that evening. My sister and I took the tram from Doraville into the city and rode it throughout various spots. Our first stop was the Woodruff Arts Center where we went to the High Museum of Art (1280 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA). The museum had a diverse permanent collection of art. One of things both my sister and I thought was interesting was that along with paintings and sculptures, there was matching furniture with the artwork.
After the museum, we walked around downtown, strolling by the olympic park and the Coca-Cola Store before we met up with my parents for lunch at The Varsity (61 North Avenue, Atlanta, GA). The atmosphere is neat with its modern retro design, but the food was basic fast-food. They are the World’s Largest Drive-in with more than two acres that can accommodate 600 cars and over eight hundred people inside. (In my memory, it didn’t seem that big, but it was big.) I learned that U.S. presidents Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama have all visited The Varsity during their terms in office.
My parents dropped my sister and I off at the Underground Atlanta shopping center. Oddly, I didn’t take any pictures of it even though it was picture worthy. It’s a underground mall. Nothing huge – just a shopping center. Had some time left before my flight, so we went back to the World of Coca-Cola (121 Baker St NW, Atlanta, GA) and visited it. The World of Coca-Cola is a permanent exhibition featuring the history of The Coca-Cola Company. We loved it. There was a cheesy 4D movie, interactive exhibits, a free tasting room of drinks from around the world, and there’s even a fault where the secret recipe for Coke is (supposedly) kept.
With my flighting leaving in a few hours, we took the tram to the airport and I flew back to the Oklahoma City with me being the very last person to board the fight while three other people had to wait until tomorrow.
