About Downtown Atlanta

The Ring of Fountains at Centennial Olympic Park in Downtown Atlanta

The central business, convention and entertainment district that originated with the 1996 Olympics now hosts some of the most iconic John Portman-inspired architecture and hottest attractions in Metro Atlanta, all within walking distance to popular hotels.  Visitors are usually familiar with the Georgia International Plaza, home to CNN Center, the Georgia World Congress Center, Phillips Arena and the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.  Other popular destinations include SkyView Atlanta, the Tabernacle and the Rialto Center for the Arts at Georgia State University.  But the nearby entertainment district gets plenty of attention, including Pemberton Place, home of the Georgia Aquarium, The World of Coca Cola and the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, all serving as anchors to Centennial Olympic Park just a block northeast of the College Football Hall of Fame and Southwest of Imagine It! Children’s Museum of Atlanta.
