Atlanta Vacation - Part 1

Bruce’s Journal was on hiatus for the week the family was away on vacation in Atlanta.  A few years ago I was advised not to report on the open web that I was on vacation since  someone could look up my address and rob my apartment while I was away.  So there will be several entries describing this vacation.

It is always good to take an early flight when leaving on vacation so you have most of a day to pursue activites at your destination.  Our flight left LaGuardia at 8:40 AM and we were settled at our hotel by 11:30 AM.  So by noon we were ready to start to explore the city.  Our hotel was within walking distance of the Georgia State stop on the MARTA, the light rail system of Atlanta.  We took the train to the CNN Center where we got  a tour of the facility.  We were shown the newsrooms of CNN and HLN.

From there we walked to the World of Coca-Cola, a museum devoted to the famous soft drink.  There were many artifacts dating back to the founding of the company in 1886.  We saw the vault where the secret formula of Coca Cola is kept.  I enjoyed the feature were visitors could sample the many soft drinks sold by the company all over the world.  At the end of the tour we were given and 8 once bottle of Coke.
