We made a quick trip this weekend to Atlanta.  Here’s a brief review:

  • I used Priceline to book our hotel room.  As usually we saved $$$ & stayed in a great hotel.  I’ve used Priceline probably a dozen times & I’ve never been disappointed.
  • The Georgia Aquarium was worth the visit.  Not as good as I expected, but still worth the time.
  • Downtown Atlanta feels really safe.
  • There was a church convention meeting in our hotel.  I wasn’t a fan of church groups when I worked in a hotel & I’m still not.  Yes, this puts me in an awkward position.
  • I like the fact that the Braves have left the old outfield wall of Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium & a marker where Hank Aaron’s 715th homerun landed.
  • We ate lunch in the 755 Club (where the picture above was taken).  Pretty cool watching batting practice while eating overpriced ballpark food.
  • I wished we lived closer to major professional sports teams.
  • We had the option of sitting in the 755 Club (air conditioned) or in seats behind the Phillies dugout (hot & sunny).  I opted for the great seats near the field.  Amanda disagreed w/ this decision.



  1. You didn’t mention the beach boys?

  2. We didn’t stick around for the Beach Boys concert at the Braves game. I’m sure they’d be a hit a the local retirment home though.
