Fox Theatre
660 Peachtree St NE
404-881-2100
www.foxtheatre.org

When it opened as a movie house, this center for performing arts was described as having “a picturesque and almost disturbing grandeur beyond imagination." More like Moorish madness. It's worth going as much to soak in the venue as whatever is taking place there. 

Carter Center Presidential Library
441 Freedom Parkway NE
404-865-7100
www.jimmycarterlibrary.gov

The museum section of Jimmy Carter's much-lauded center contains a full-scale replica of the Oval Office and other fun stuff; plus, visiting exhibitions usually on some aspect of human rights.

World of Coca Cola
121 Baker St. NW
404-676-5151

Yes, there's a museum — a large one — dedicated to a sugary soda. Plus a store, samples of 100 beverages and a lot more sweet stuff. 

Ebenezer Baptist Church

The city does its most famous native son with an entire Martin Luther King Jr. Historic District, but to get the most immediate presence of the great Civil Rights leader, visit the church where he and his father were pastors. Better yet, take in a Sunday service, complete with gospel choir.
