Whether you're a budding journalist or a fan of the network, odds are you'll enjoy touring CNN's headquarters. Tours of CNN Center give you an inside look at the day-to-day operations of one of the world's largest news organization. Standard Behind-the-Scenes Tours, which last 50 minutes, include peeks at spaces used to produce broadcasts, while upgraded experiences offer everything from access to live newsrooms to souvenir press passes and meet-and-greets with TV anchors.

Although some recent visitors bemoaned CNN Center's high tour rates and short tour times, adding that the 50-minute timeframe is mostly filled with security checks and walking up and down stairs, others described them as informative and interesting. Many previous travelers were especially impressed with the friendly guides.

The CNN Center sits in downtown Atlanta by the College Football Hall of Fame, SkyView Atlanta and the Georgia Aquarium, among other attractions. Parking is available at the adjacent CNN Deck for $10 per vehicle, per day, or you can take MARTA to the Dome/GWCC/Philips Arena/CNN Center train station. Standard tours run every 20 minutes from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and cost $15 for adults; $14 for seniors, students and teens ages 13 to 18; and $12 for children ages 4 to 12. Kids 3 and younger get in for free. Upgraded tours cost $33 to $47 per person and are only available at select times. If you have an Atlanta CityPASS, your pass covers one standard tour ticket. On-site amenities include a food court, a gift shop and restrooms. To learn more, visit the CNN Studio Tours website.
