Since SunTrust Park's opening in 2017, thousands of tomahawk-wielding fans have ventured to the stadium to cheer on their favorite Major League Baseball team, the Atlanta Braves. The baseball stadium can seat up to 41,000 people and each spot provides a sweeping view of the field. But you don't need to watch a game to explore the park: daily tours run year-round to share the Braves' long history. During the tour, you'll see Monument Garden's historic displays, the dugout and the press box, and visit the Braves Clubhouse Store, among other stops. After your tour, head over to the Atlanta Battery, adjacent to the park, for dining, shopping or a manicure.

Baseball fans were impressed with the park, saying it is clean, well-designed and an improvement on the Braves' former home, Turner Field. Visitors repeatedly applaud the park for its family-friendly atmosphere. Despite these perks, travelers lament the stadium's merely decent food, traffic and awful parking experiences.

The Braves host regular season games from around March or April to September. Game times at SunTrust Park are seasonal and vary. Ticket prices for the game also vary depending on your seat in the stadium and the opponent. Tour tickets cost $20 for adults and $12 for children 12 and younger. Tours typically run Monday to Saturday at 10 and 11:30 a.m. and 1 and 2:30 p.m. and on Sunday at 1 and 2:30 p.m. between April and September; between October and March, tours run Monday to Saturday at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. For the Braves' schedule and to book a tour or game day tickets, visit the park's website. Bear in mind that concessions and souvenirs will cost extra. The park is about 13 miles northwest of downtown Atlanta. You can drive to the stadium, but parking starts at $16 and varies by lot. Alternatively, you can take the CobbLinc's Route 10 bus and get off at the corner of Cobb Parkway and Cumberland Parkway then walk a few minutes to the stadium.

#1 Atlanta History Center

Spread across 33 acres in Atlanta's trendy Buckhead neighborhood, the Atlanta History Center seeks to explore Georgia's past through comprehensive exhibitions, historic homes and miles of gardens and trails. The center's primary facility is the Atlanta History Museum, which showcases exhibits that span the region's history, from Native American culture to life in the antebellum South. 

Near the museum is the Swan House, a restored estate originally built in 1928. Living up to its name, every room allegedly features at least one swan (motif). Outside the house, the Swan Woods Trail is lined with beautiful plants native to Georgia. Nearby, you can also see how the other half lived at the Smith Family Farm, a plantation house from the mid-1800s. Meanwhile, bookworms won't want to miss a tour of the Margaret Mitchell House, where the author penned her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, "Gone With the Wind."
