The Great Outdoors
The Great Outdoors
Everyone likes a break from their screens on occasion, and Atlanta offers a host of options to stretch your legs and hit the great outdoors. Visit one of the city's sprawling parks, most notably the 185-acre Piedmont Park just a mile from campus, float the Chattahoochee River, boat around Lake Lanier, or hike dozens of state parks and trails. If you have a long weekend and want to get away, you can even be at the beach inside of five hours.
A City United
Nothing unites a city quite like its hometown sports teams. Atlanta is home to a host of them, including the Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Dream, and, the city's newest champion, Atlanta United F.C. With new venues like Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Truist Park and the Battery Atlanta, and the newly renovated State Farm Arena, it has become about much more than just the competition -- they are must-see social experiences.
