As its name suggests, World of Coca-Cola is a museum dedicated entirely to Coke. Visits to the two-level facility begin with exhibits on the drink's historical milestones, its role in pop culture and the bottling process. The older generations in your group will likely enjoy the museum's attention to the company's past, but the kids will probably be most excited for the Taste It! area, where more than 100 varieties of Coke from Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and North America are available for unlimited sampling. You can also purchase various Coke memorabilia at the on-site gift shop.

Many recent visitors cited the free, limitless samples as the main reason to pay the museum's pricey admission. However, several past travelers lamented this attraction's lack of information about the soft drink's history and said it's only worth visiting on a rainy day if you have some time to spare.

Should you opt to stop by World of Coca-Cola, plan your itinerary so that your trip coincides with or is around the same time as a visit to the nearby Georgia Aquarium and Center for Civil and Human Rights. All three attractions are accessible by streetcar, bus, train and car; if you decide to drive, World of Coca-Cola has a parking garage that charges $10 per vehicle, per day. Standard tickets cost $17 for adults, $15 for seniors and $13 for kids ages 3 to 12. If you have an Atlanta CityPASS, your pass covers entry to the museum. Members of the military and children 2 and younger get in for free. Hours vary by season, but World of Coca-Cola is generally open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and Sundays, with extended hours on Saturdays, in the summer and during school breaks.

#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."
