See What Atlanta Has to Offer

Home of Centennial Park, the Georgia Aquarium, a rich history of the civil rights movement, and much more, there are plenty of things to see and do while you attend this year’s meeting in Atlanta, GA.

Civil Rights Legacy

In the early 1960s, Atlanta became the cultural catalyst for the Civil Rights Movement where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., John Lewis and many more civil rights leaders grew the movement nationally. Atlanta’s civil rights legacy lives on in areas such as Cascade Heights and Southwest Atlanta, Sweet Auburn and Atlanta’s Eastside and throughout the city. 

Explore Civil Rights landmarks, historic sites, museums, Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Parkand the top-rated National Center for Civil and Human Rights.

Georgia Aquarium

From small blacktip reef sharks to massive whale sharks and everything in between, Georgia Aquarium offers one of the largest and most dynamic shark exhibits in North America. See the dolphin show, suit up and try an underwater encounter with sting rays and sharks or go behind-the-scenes with sea lions.

Today the park performs a dual mission: it serves as Georgia’s lasting legacy of the Centennial Olympic Games, and it anchors efforts to revitalize residential and commercial development in Georgia’s capital city of Atlanta.
