Fun Saturday Night in Atlanta

We were all dressed and ready to go over to a friends house on Saturday when they cancelled last minute. Quick change of plans. We piled in the car and headed to Atlanta. First stop, The Varsity. This famous institution is a landmark in the downtown area. You have to eat there at least once to experience the atmosphere and of course get your Varsity hat. Don't forget to check out the wall of pictures where you will see famous folks from Ryan Seacrest to Elvis partaking in the Atlanta tradition. After we filled out bellies with delicious onion rings and smothered hot dogs, we headed down to Centennial Olympic Park. My kids had never been there so it was fun to what them run around and check out the sights. You most definitely have to check out the Olympic Ring Fountain. At dusk we were surprised with a show as the water spouted up and down and high into the air to an arrangement of melodies. It is a must see!! Overall, our change of plans became an unexpected great time in the big city of Atlanta!
