ATLANTA: Cheap Hotels in Atlanta
Atlanta is the capital city of the US state of Georgia, and thanks to it being home to the busiest international airport in the world, it is a tourist hotspot with many Atlanta hotels providing world class accommodation.
When to visit based on priceYour best shot at low volume of vacationers and better rates is to plan your trip between January and April. These are the least visited months, and although quite cooler than the rest of the year, still a nice time of year in Atlanta. Be aware that the winter holidays can get busy, and prices can be higher.
Key AttractionsA fun thing to do, and wise during winter months is a visit to Atlanta’s Georgia Aquarium, the worlds largest. You’re sure to warm up while walking through this aquariums enclosed glass tunnel, with sharks swimming only inches away. This fantastic attraction is host to over sixty exhibits, so plan a day, and enjoy.
Another fun adventure all year long in Atlanta is the Atlanta Zoo, where you get to enjoy the experience of well over 1000 animals, including a world class Gorilla adventure. Washington, DC isn’t the only place to view Giant Panda’s, because they live here too. Experience these precious animals in an environment as close as native as possible. These giant “teddy bear’s” look like cuddly pets, but in fact are anything but.
Having FunYou’re in theDeep South, so why not experience the history with a visit to the Atlanta Civil, War Museum. From the moment that you stroll into the museum, and your eyes take in the massive painting depicting the war in Atlanta, you’ll know your in for an experience. Experience some of the most interesting artifacts of the war, and learn Atlanta’s part in it.
Another great experience weather dependent is Atlanta’s Botanical Gardens. If your traveling with younger children, they may not get this experience, but Mom surly will.
Who doesn’t enjoy a day at an amusement park? Atlanta has one of the most exciting days ahead for you at Six Flags over Georgia, so why not spend a day holding your breath?
ShoppingLadies (and gentlemen), you will find yourself in shopping heaven in Atlanta. With endless opportunities, it would take you more than a day just to shop the Phipps Plaza Mall and Lenox Square.
A visit to the Buckhead shopping area is where you can find some of the finest Antique shops, as well as the area’s best art galleries.
If your looking for an area of Atlanta then the Bennett Street District is where you find interesting shops, museums, restaurants pubs and theaters.
Another excellent shopping experience is the more than fifty stores in Atlantic Station. You could probably spend a day here shopping and dining, with fine pubs, and even an ice-skating rink in winter months.
NearbyIf traveling with small children, a visit to BabyLand General Hospital might just be the ticket. This is the home of the Cabbage Patch Kids and amazingly, is free to visit. Your youngsters can still adopt a Cabbage Patch Baby, from infants to older with hair. This isn’t a five-minute stop as most visitors will spend 2-3 hours. Also may provide Dad with an opportunity to catch up on emails.
If the weather is being good to you, why not cool off with water slide or ten at Lake Lanier Beach and Water Park. This fun spot is open all year, and is only a half an hour from downtown Atlanta. From rental boats to horseback riding, there’s something for everyone. There’s even an 18-hole golf course for Dad and Mom.

Local expert's tips
Summertime in Atlanta Georgia is a vacationers dream come true
To begin with, lets talk transportation, and the fact that you really don’t need a rental car, so why not save some of your spending money? Well known for its public transportation, Marta can take you from the airport to downtown Atlanta, some 10 miles, and for about $3 a person, you’re downtown and ready to check into your hotel. First you will have to take the 10-minute airport shuttle to the Marta Station where you can choose which train will get you to your hotel.
During your visit, you can use the Marta system as well as the streetcar service that runs in a circle through the center of Atlanta, or just take a cab.
Let talk fun events for a minute, shall we? If your vacation falls on the 18th of June, you can cool off to some exciting and cold craft beers at the Atlanta Summer Beerfest. For the past six years this event has drawn quite the crowd to the Historic 4th Ward Park. Live music and over 200 micro-brewed beers to taste bring a sell out crowd. That being said, you might want to jump on the web and grab those event tickets in advance.
Looking for a wild “selfie moment” during your vacation in Atlanta? We have exactly that for you. The Georgia Aquarium is a fantastic place to view the thousands of sea creatures, but we can do that one better. How would you like to swim underwater with Giant Manta Rays and even a Whale Shark? That’s right, bring your waterproof GoPro or other waterproof camera and you can do just that here. And have no fear; whale sharks are friendly and “non-lethal”.
The Deep South is very well known for it’s fried chicken, and Atlanta’s got plenty of joints for that. We decided to give you a quick rundown on some of the best chicken wings in town. Sobban located in Decatur offers some excellent and tasty Korean/Southern wings with all the heat and some peanut/ginger sauces. The Bone Lick BBQ in Westside is interesting to say the least, as owner/chef Mike LaSage marinates his wings for two days the slow smokes them to a delicacy state of mind.
But our favorite is Burger Win in the East Village, a hot Chinese take out restaurant that doesn’t open until 4 pm in the afternoon. Why do we recommend this place you might ask? They deliver their most excellent wings to you, from 4 pm until 3 am. Great for an evening get together or party in your hotel room.
One of the most interesting ways to experience Midtown Atlanta is in the great outdoors, on a Segway Tour. No worries, they give you an instructional pre-ride training and safety procedures, and I know for a fact, it’s a lot of fun. You get to see and hear about the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Ansley and Piedmont Park, as well as get pointers for where to eat and grab a cocktail or two. For 2.5 hours of fun and the experience for under $60? What a deal, and the photo’s will impress your friends back home too.
