From its inspiring attractions such as Georgia Aquarium, SkyView Ferris Wheel, World of Coca-Cola, CNN Center and Center for Civil and Human Rights to year-round sporting events at the Georgia Dome and Philips Arena, there's always something going on in Downtown Atlanta.
The Convention & Entertainment District is where big events and family fun meet. Neighboring Fairlie-Poplar puts world-renowned performances center stage. And Castleberry Hill provides the perfect blend of eclectic artistry and city spirit.
