Atlanta Vacation - Part 3

Back in the 1990s whenever I traveled to a new city I would always air check the major radio stations.  I stopped doing that for various reasons.  In this internet era I can listen to radio stations from all over the world so I can listen to an Atlanta radio station any time.  On Wednesday morning I took out may AM-FM Walkman (remember those?) and scanned the radio dials.  There were several sports talk stations but no oldies or classic hits stations.

After 9 AM we hopped on the MARTA and traveled to the High Museum of Art.  I am not an expert in art but there were several exhibits featuring American and European art from the 14th century to the present.

From there we went to the Margaret Mitchell House, the birthplace of the author of Gone with the Wind.  The tour guide gave a detailed biography of Ms. Mitchell.  She was quite knowledgeable about the famous novel.  There was also a small exhibit devoted to the movie version.  The tour guide was emphatic that the book was better.

The third stop of theday was the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta Visitor Center and Monetary Museum.

Our last stop of the day was the Hard Rock Café.  Whenever we try to go to the one in Times Square, we go away since we don’t want to wait for 90 minutes.  In Atlanta we were served right away.
