Things to Do in Greater Atlanta This Summer

Calling Courtland Grand Hotel your home-away-from-home on a summer visit to Atlanta—whether in full-bore vacation mode or traveling on business—you’ll be spoiled for choices when it comes to things to do and see. 

Get to know the globe-spanning critters at Zoo Atlanta, for example, which among many other notable attributes happens to be one of the few zoological parks in the country to house those crowd-pleasing ursine superstars, giant pandas. Stroll the summertime blooms of the Atlanta Botanical Garden, or—if you’ve got a young crowd in tow—consider the thrill rides awaiting at Six Flags Over Georgia.

Cool off while tubing on the Chattahoochee River, or walk its banks on the popular East Palisades Trail (best known for its ethereal bamboo grove). You might also soak up some fresh air and urban greenspace vibes on the Piedmont Park Loop Trail, or head out of town for nearby outdoor destinations such as Arabia Mountain or Kennesaw Mountain, a National Battlefield not only serving up fascinating insights into the momentous 1864 Civil War contest and the land’s native peoples but also stunning views—including the Atlanta skyline—from the mountaintop.

The summertime calendar in Atlanta, meanwhile, comes chockablock with festivals covering a lot of thematic territory, among them the Atlanta Ice Cream Festival, Atlanta Underground Film Festival, Atlanta Arts Festival, Music Midtown, and Grand Park Summer Shade Festival.
