Discover History While Relaxing at Spa Hotels in Atlanta
Having played an instrumental role in the Civil Rights Movement, Atlanta is a city robust with history, culture and more. What is now a post-modern city, die-hard southerners view Atlanta as the heart of the Old Confederacy. With all this culture and development, Atlanta has become the best New South example.
For a city with a population of over 4 million, Atlanta doesn’t skimp on its green spaces, and many are close to the finest spa hotels in Atlanta. Located in Midtown and spanning roughly 200 acres, Piedmont Park was first planned in the 1890s, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, and opened in 1897. The park is home to the Atlanta Dogwood Festival and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra during springtime every year. It also hosts other events throughout the year including an annual Labor Day festival and an autumn jazz concert series. Piedmont Park's botanical garden has over 10 miles of walking trails for you to enjoy as well as many sculptures from around the world.
Step Back in Time from the Best Spa Hotels in Atlanta
In the 1960s, Atlanta was home to many activists who led the battle for equal rights for African-Americans. In 1961, during the Civil Rights Movement, a group of African-American students sat down at an all-white lunch counter in downtown Atlanta and asked for service. When they were denied, they refused to leave their seats until their demands were met. The resulting sit-in at Rich's department store lasted nearly two months and helped fuel other protests around the country. The Martin Luther King Jr., National Historic Site, located in the Sweet Auburn neighborhood of Atlanta, preserves Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthplace, final resting place, and the site of his first church, Ebenezer Baptist Church. This kind of history is typically within blocks of most of the best spa hotels in Atlanta allowing you to combine history and relaxation all in one trip.
Take on a Day of Fun from Spa Hotels in Atlanta
Spa hotels in Atlanta can offer a great reprieve after a fun filled day with the family. Nearby Fernbank Museum of Natural History is a wonderful place to visit. It has a planetarium and an IMAX theatre, as well as collections of dinosaur fossils and other artifacts. It also has a butterfly house! The museum also has a children's museum on-site that can be accessed by ticket holders or separately if you don't want to pay admission (since it's separate from the main museum). The children's museum has many hands-on activities that will keep your kids entertained while they learn about science!
Also, a must-see is the World of Coca-Cola. Located in downtown Atlanta, near many of the top spa hotels Atlanta has to offer, the museum focuses on the history of soft drinks and Coca-Cola products, with interactive exhibits aimed at appealing to kids and adults alike. In addition to interactive displays about how Coke is made, visitors can enjoy free samples of all kinds of Coke products, including diet versions as well as coffee and tea made with Coke syrup instead of sugar. If you're hungry when you arrive at the World of Coca-Cola, there's also a food court area where you can purchase snacks like pizza slices or hot dogs.
