Unique, Unusual & Offbeat Things to Do in Atlanta
Atlanta’s nickname of “Hotlanta” is not only because of the stifling heat in summer, it’s also because it’s a beautiful and vibrant city full of adventure. If you are in the area, why settle on the boring and overdone when there are plenty of options when it comes to offbeat activities. From zombies to soda and more, there are plenty of quirky things to do in Atlanta, Georgia.
World of Coca-Cola
Atlanta is home to several big names – CNN, the Centers for Disease Control, Delta Airlines, and probably the biggest of them all — Coke. The name “Coca-Cola” is known in every corner of the world. And there are some flavours of Coke that can only be found in those corners. Or you could head over to the World of Coca-Cola to taste flavours from across the globe. The experience also offers the opportunity to watch a 4D movie, explore the bottling line, and see vintage ads from around the world.
You may not be able to travel back in time, but you can experience history for yourself. Medieval Times gives you the opportunity to watch knights, jousting, and all that pageantry of days of olde. You can also feast on foods and enjoy the entertainment while there. If you have children, this is a great place to live a little and create a memorable, unique vacation experience.
Clermont Motor Hotel
Sometimes, you just need an adult only type of vacation. The Clermont Motor Hotel is the oldest strip club in the country, but that is not the only thing that makes this stand out. The dancers are all older, creating a very different strip experience than what may be normal for you. Clermont is a hot spot that has attracted several celebrities who like you, were on the lookout for quirky things to do in Atlanta.
While a cemetery is rarely the place that comes to mind when you think about visiting a new area, this one should make your list of things to do in Atlanta. Along with the beautiful scenery and expansive views, there are also the ornate graves of famous citizens.
If your timing is right, you might be able to run into some zombies. Of course, these are actually actors dressing up as zombies, but it’s pretty cool nonetheless. You are guided on a tour by professionals who know how to “kill” zombies and bring you to safety. These fighters and zombies may all be actors, but the excitement and wonder you experience is completely real. If this is something you would like to do, make sure to visit Atlanta in October since that is when this happens.
