Hi, Dad & DD21 coming to Atlanta over New Year with car, staying at the Courtyard in Decatur.
I'm thinking of maybe buying the CityPass, but if you do, how do you prebook the CNN tour? I don't think you can?
I'm not sure whether it's actually cost effective buying the Pass for us, we definitely want to do CNN & World of Coke, will most like do the Aquarium, and maybe High Museum of Art, if we have enough time, but I don't think we will.
Here, my plans at the moment;
Mon 31st Dec: Blue Line to MLK > arrive for opening at 9am. Hopefully get on first Birth Tour at 10am, be finished around 11ish > Maybe go walk around the Oakland Cemetery > Blue line to Dome/Phillips > Stroll around the Olypmic Park > Have Lunch > CNN Tour at 2pm [would prefer to prebook] > World of Coke around 4pm > Back to Decatur > NYE Celebrations in Decatur
I'd like to add the aquarium to this day, but I think it would then be too rushed, and most places close at 5pm or 6pm, the only way would be cutting MLK, but then that isn't open on the 1st Jan.
Same for High Museum, that isn't open on the 1st either.
Tues 1st Jan - Flight home at 8:30pm, leave Atlanta and head to airport around 5ish.
Current plans are Aquarium for opening at 10am, Lenox Sq Mall - but I feel this is zigzaging around the city too much?! And should we drive to these places or take the car?
Or vice versa, Drive Lenox Sq mall for opening 10am, shopping alittle, head downtown to Aquarium for 12-1pm, few hour at Aquarium, leave at 5pm for airport.
Now if we only do the main 3 attractions, we aren't making our monies worth from the Pass? Should we bother we it or not, and just buy individually so we can prebook CNN?
Or whether to switch the days around totally and do World of Coke, CNN, Olympic Park and Aquarium all the 1st before 5pm? Is that do-able? Everything opens at 10am. Could do Olympic Park at 9am, World of Coke at 10am, [I believe it's timed to get you through in 90mins], lunch at 12pm, CNN at 1pm, 2pm Aquarium til 5pm.
Then on the 31st, we can do MLK first thing, Oakland Cemetery, High Museum, Lenox Sq, and mabye even Swan House...making full use of the citypass. Using either marta and car.
