You’ve made it to the great city of Atlanta for your next business trip, and you have some time to kill in-between meetings. Not sure how to spend your free time to get the most out of your trip? Here’s a quick virtual tour of Atlanta to give you some ideas.

Centennial Olympic Park

If you’re looking to spend some time outside while enjoying the fresh air, make sure to check out the Centennial Olympic Park, which is full of historic landmarks highlighting the history of the Summer Olympics. When you go for a walk or a jog to relieve some stress at the park, make sure to use your voice-activated GoPro Hero 5 to record or take pictures of the awesome sights, sculptures, and landmarks. The most well-known stop at the park is the Fountain of Rings, which features incredible music performances synchronized with the fountain. Luckily, with the GoPro’s voice commands, you can simply tell the GoPro what you want it to do, so you can enjoy the experience without having to constantly stare at a screen.

And if you’re going to brag to your friends and coworkers that you got to check out the awesome park, you’re going to need proof that you were there. Use the GoPro El Grande Extension Pole to create a more interesting memory and to make sure that you’re in the photos.

CNN Studio Tour

Atlanta is home to the studio of the famous news network CNN. Here, you can take a tour to ride the world’s longest escalator, see how the teleprompter and weather maps work, and, if you’re lucky, meet one of the anchors! They will even take you inside Studio 7, where you can watch all of the live action as breaking news is constantly unfolding.

‍World of Coca-Cola

Yes. You read that correctly. There is an entire attraction created to celebrate the famously refreshing soft drink.

In the World of Coca-Cola, you can get a tour of the facility with taste testing, a behind the scenes look at the bottling process and a view of hundreds of different artifacts. You can also check out the famous vault of the secret formula, where they guard the best-kept secret formula very closely.
Since you’re going to be on your feet a majority of the time with all of these tours, you can keep all of your accessories in a resilient, stylish, and suitable Subterra carry-on or backpack from Thule. With these bags, you don’t have to worry about organizing all of your things, since they can all be in one convenient place.

Time to Eat!

After all of that adventuring and sightseeing, you’re going to be hungry, so make sure to stop by the Atlantic Station for fun cuisine and places to shop. Some of the popular eateries at the station include The Pig and the Pearl, Chick-a-biddy, and Lobby at Twelve.

Or if you’re looking to eat dinner later at a restaurant that’s closer to downtown, check out Staplehouse, BoccaLupo, or Ticonderoga Club.

So now you’re eating, and you realize your devices’ batteries are running low. Well, it’s a good thing you brought your MyCharge Hubplus portable charger that you got at the airport to charge all of your devices while you eat. Your phone has to recharge while you do!

Atlanta Botanical Garden

Now that you’ve been running around and checking out some of the sites and attractions, sometimes it’s nice to just sit back and take it all in. The best place to do that is at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.

Enjoy calming music with your Parrot Zik 3 headphones as you take in the beauty of nature. The nice thing about these headphones is the innovative noise-canceling feature that lets you drown out the noise and activity of everyone around you. The garden is a very popular visitor spot, so the noise is inevitable.

With all of the awe-inspiring plant collections, various exhibits, and beautiful displays, there’s so much to take in at the garden. Don’t forget to take a nice stroll on the one-of-a-kind Canopy Walk through Storza Woods as well.
