If you prefer dinosaurs, visit the Fernbank Museum of Natural History.

Relax after an action packed morning with lunch at Star Provisions, Atlantans’ favorite gourmet market and sandwich shop. Eat lunch outside and finish lunch with one of their delicious cupcakes or try Jeni’s Ice Cream next door. 

Afternoon
Head downtown to the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, one of Atlanta’s newest attractions. Sit at an old-time lunch counter and listen to the sit-in protests. Located just a few minutes away, you can also tour Martin Luther King’s birth home in the Sweet Auburn district. 

Dinner
Turn your guest room into the outdoors with our Ritz Kids Camping. We bring the camping indoors with tents and amenities just for the kids. Parents can order from In-Room Dining for a relaxing night in after a day exploring the city. Camping requests are based upon availability and must be made in advance.
