Reasons to visit Atlanta in January

Atlanta is the most populous city of Georgia, seated among the gorgeous foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, making it perfect for many winter activities! 

A noteworthy wintry excursion would be to Beech Mountain Resort. Just a few hours drive northeast of Atlanta, this holiday destination is the highest ski resort in the Eastern US! With 16 gorgeous trails ranging all levels of difficulty from novice to extremely experienced. Work with experienced and patient instructors to make sure you're ready for tackling the hills! After a long and exhilarating day on the slopes sit back and enjoy the delicious food of various restaurants inside while gazing out at the sight before you sitting on a 2,800-foot deck with a glass roundhouse and bar! Beech Mountain Resort is also known for having lots of both free and paid for live music events!

Atlanta is also home to some amazing sightseeing attractions out of the cold! Including Georgia Aquarium which was the largest public aquarium in the world from its opening in 2005 until 2012, when it was surpassed by Marine Life Park in Singapore. It houses more than one hundred thousand animals and represents more than a thousand incredible species, all of whom reside in 10 million gallons (38 million litres) of salt and marine water. The largest exhibit they have holds four massive whale sharks, four manta rays, more swimmers and over 6 million gallons of water! 

Atlanta is also home to the World of Coca-Cola museum. Filled to the brim with history and information on how this popular beverage created in Atlanta became a national icon! Including a 3-D theatre, a vault of the secret formula, the Coca-Cola Theatre, an area where you can make your very own fizzy drink, and you can even stop by to take a photo with the Coca-Cola Polar Bear Mascot!

Some other noteworthy points of interest would be the Centennial Olympic Park, the birth home of Martin Luther King Jr., and the Fox Theatre, all brimming with culture and curiosity!
