Dont forget to allow time for the security queues getting back into the terminal. And you'll have all your hand luggage to cart around unless there is somewhere it can be stored.

EDIT: Rick, why do you not work out how to post a website link thats actually useable? I haven't seen a single one of your "see here" posts that is clickable. Copy the link from the address bar in the browser, not from other TA posts.

I would get all the info that you need to go into the town but wait until you arrive to see exactly just how much time you really have, especially as you have kids with you. Also check out the kids club on the Atlanta airport website.

For me personally, I would not leave the airport when you only have 6 hours. Because security lines can be so long, the will easily knock off two hours of your available time.

Atlanta is a great airport to spend some time in. In Terminal F they have duty free, Coach, Mac Cosmetics, and a lot of other really cool shops. There is also Lacoste, Keihls, Ferragamo, Sean John, Reebok, Brooks Brothers, etc.

There is a really great place to get a gourmet meal: One Flew South.

In the underground walkway between terminals T, A, B, C, D there are historical and art exhibits.
