After visiting the World of Coca-Cola, my colleague Sally and myself walked for a few minutes into another top attraction in the city of Atlanta. This is to check out the headquarters of I think the most famous news network in the world, the Cable News Network or more famous as CNN.
And just like Coca-Cola, Atlanta is also CNN’s home base. The CNN headquarters is located just across the Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta. It is just a few meters from the Georgia World Congress Center where I went to for the Atlanta Comic Convention.
The CNN Center in Atlanta, as I learned during the tour, is located in what was once an indoor amusement park. Its the first of its kind and was called The World of Sid and Marty Kroft. The CNN Studio tour takes about 55 minutes and runs about every 30 minutes. Standard rate for the tour costs $15 which can be bought at the main atrium.
During my first weekend in Atlanta, I took a drive down to the downtown area with my colleague Sally. We headed to checkout two of the most famous attractions of Atlanta. This day we visited the World of Coca-Cola and took a studio tour into the CNN Center. On this blog I’ll focus our trip into the World of Coca-Cola.
The World of Coca Cola is located next to the Georgia Aquarium and the Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta. The World of Coca-Cola is an indoor exhibition that features all about everyone’s favorite and probably the most famous soda drink in the world. This attraction is also located just a few blocks from where the headquarters of Coca-Cola is located.
The World of Coca-Cola is a modern building that stands right next to a park and the Georgia Aquarium beside it. One interesting feature of the building is that it has this glass tower which contains the image of the iconic Coke bottle.
