Stay in Atlanta for Memorial Day

May 19, 2015

Downtown Atlanta is the place to BE for Memorial Day weekend.
Just take Travel Channels word for it.

Wonderful restaurants, fabulous shopping, hundreds of arts and culture venues, world-class museums ... there’s more to do in Atlanta than many realize. Home to the world’s largest aquarium, the new World of Coca-Cola, dozens of beautiful parks and the High Museum of Art, the hometown of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the most attractive cities in the region.

The Atlanta Jazz Festival is always a popular event this Memorial Day weekend, drawing crowds to Piedmont Park for free performances from top names in the jazz circuit. There are also great outdoor activities -- and a laser show -- at Stone Mountain Park, which will appeal to the whole family.

STAY: The 127-room Ellis Hotel in downtown Atlanta is located in a historic building that's thoroughly stylish and contemporary. Its charming lobby has fresh flowers and a cool light fixture installment, the restaurant serves delicious farm-to-table cuisine, and the rooms -- though on the smaller side -- are sophisticated.
