Must visit the Michael C. Carlos Hall for Art History. It looks more like a museum than a lecture hall. In fact, the interior design is much attractive and magnetic than the external view for the science faculties. One example is the Chemistry Hall. The...More

I find walking around Emory University refreshing. The landscaping is a mix of forest and manicured lawns with some flowers. The buildings are all pleasing to the eye. The lecture I went to at the counter school of theology w was top notch.

No reason for a tourist to visit unless your child wants to attend Emory or you are going to an event on campus. Emory has some very good concerts throughout the year.

This campus is so nice and very big. I am not sure why there is snow in its profile pic as of today because it does not showcase its true beauty. Great time!

Enormous endowment so the facilities are top notch. Quiet suburban setting and very quiet. So easy to sit outside and eat or have a cup of coffee.

There are many options varying from Marriot Courtyard to Holiday Inn closeby and Hilton brands including double tree if you opt for a few more miles. I would suggest using trip advisor to find the right one for you..

Daughter will move to Atlanta in August to begin grad studies at Emory. We're looking for the cheapest option to get her from Portland OR to her apartment near campus with two suitcases, a carry-on and a handbag in tow. She's never been to Atlanta and doesn't know a soul there. She is an experienced traveler and is quite comfortable with public transit but there is a limit to how much one small human can juggle. Is her best bet to take Marta from the airport part way then catch a cab? If...More

The nearest MARTA station is Inman Park, but don't count on any taxis there. You may want to consider Uber, which should cost no more than a cab, since she will have some "stuff". There are shuttles, but I don't have details; some other DE here can fill you in. Will she not have her own transport while she's here?

Are you driving yourself (and possibly returning a rental car)? Taking Taxi/Uber? Using MARTA? Kind of hard to answer the question without knowing how you are getting there -JimG
