Atlanta Visitor's Center A Must for Visitors and Locals Alike

Atlanta is a large city spread out over many miles. It can be overwhelming trying to find your way around locating the places you want to visit.

The first stop on anybodys list before they venture into the city and environs is a stop the at the cities main Visitor's Center. Managed by the Atlanta Convention and Visitor's Bureau, it is the best place to learn all about what Atlanta has to offer. The center is located at 65 Alabama St. in the heart of downtown at Underground Atlanta. Underground has several levels but you will find the visitor's center on street level.

The first person you will probably encounter is a viberent red headed lady named Mary Ann. Her welcoming and southern charm makes you feel right at home. We have dubbed Mary Ann "The Queen of all Information." And she is. Like a magician who can pull a rabbit out of a hat Mary Ann can pull information from out of no where. It is an amazing feat to see. And her knowldege of downtown history is unmatached.

The center is divded in to 4 sections:

1. Information Counter: If it has a brochure you will find it here. This is also the Royal Court of Mary Ann. Mary Ann is an Atlanta attraction in her own right.

2. Atlanta Trolley Tour Line Ticker booth: Once you have all your information and know what you want to visit, you can then stop here to purchase your tickets for Atlanta's best sightseeing tour.

3. Atlantix: This is where you can find 1/2 price tickets for local theater productions and Atlanta attractions

4. Display Area: You will find many exhibits on the attractions in Atlanta as well as a small history section on downtown and Underground Atlanta.
