Atlanta seems to be limited in activities, especially if you are in town without a car. You can walk to this attraction from the hotels. I bought a city pass and this was one of the options so I did it. I think if you think about the evolution of broadcasting and CNN's place in history, you might find it a lot more fascinating. The tour guide was outstanding and made it as interactive as possible. They make an effort to involve kids. Our tour might have had a bit more excitement and humor than others as we were all watching the monitors for Prince William and Kate to come out of the hospital with their new baby! There is a lot of security and rules about photography. Also, there are no restroom stops along the way once you are on the tour so plan ahead. I would say that this is something to do while you are there.
