advance planning for weekend in May 2006

Coming to Atlanta in May to see "Wicked" at Fabulous Fox Theatre. Not very familiar with the city. Thinking about taking Amtrak. Will I need to rent a car in the city or is public transportation available and reliable? Good hotels nearby? Fun things for a family to see & do? Thanks!

Unfortunately, it's pretty difficult to get around much of Atlanta without a car. There is a station right behind the Fox. There isn't one real near the Amtrak station in town. It's several blocks away. You could take a cab I suppose. I'm not sure, but seems like I saw somewhere that there is an Amtrak station near the airport. I might be wrong. But, there is a Marta station in the airport.

You could do it without a car I guess, depending on what else you plan to do while your here. It would limit somethings though.
