Atlanta with kids 20 and 6?

Hi we will be in Atlanta at the end Sept for work but we will have our son (20) and our daughter (6) with us. Will there be any sports games on we can take our son to at that time and where do we get tickets? Do you have any suggestions for things we can take them to that they would both enjoy? We would like to do some shopping while we are there as well are there good shopping areas close to the convention centre do they have outlet areas as well?

Thank you we want them to enjoy it as well even though we will be working some of the time while we are there.

Which convention center and does your 20 year old mind playing babysitter a bit? We would need your exact dates to talk more accurately about sporting events, but there should be some options.

Spending some time reading through the Things to Do section and Top Questions should be helpful. For attractions, the best bets are the aquarium and Piedmont Park.

Hi our conference is at the Georgia world congress centre and we are hoping to stay close to it. Our son will do some looking after of our daughter and we will 'reward him' with some things for him :-)

I think the Children's Museum is a good idea for the younger child and it is an easy place for your son to take her. On a weekday, I would recommend going after lunch so you miss most of the school field trip crowds. Olympic Park, which is right by the convention center is fun as well and if the weather is warm, have them wear clothes/shoes they don't might getting wet.

The Zoo might be fun for both of them and if he is a history buff the Cyclorama might be enjoyable to him (and she can tag along)
