After our long ordeal of waiting for our rental car at the airport early in the morning, we drove over to take a short break in Centennial Olympic Park before lunching at Busy Bee’s Cafe.

Centennial Olympic Park is a 21-acre public park located in downtown Atlanta, Georgia owned and operated by the Georgia World Congress Center Authority.

After our drive and spending a few minutes at the many pieces of artwork and fountains, I found myself needing to run to the bathroom. In a mad dash, my colleagues and I fast-walked over to the Centennial Olympic Park Visitor Center.

An ambassador was very helpful with us at the Visitor Center. We picked up paper maps as a back-up to our Google Maps on our phones. I forgot to download an offline version of our destination city, so I ended up using 100% of my roaming data for the day…

Recently, the program has been relaunched to raise funds for the rejuvenation of this iconic Olympic Ring water feature. For those who love to associate with the ideas of achievement and champions, incorporating time to visit this place of legacy commemoration is a must.IMG-20160922-WA0090.jpg

 

Around the iconic park, there are many areas and other attractions to explore throughout like the Georgia Aquarium, Center for Civil and Human Rights, College Football Hall of Fame, and World of Coca-Cola.IMG-20160922-WA0075.jpg
