Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

 

The Atlanta metropolitan area is the ninth most populous city region in the United States, and as such, has plenty to offer in the way of entertainment and recreation. Atlanta is a city steeped in history and culture and is full of opportunities to enrich your mind, or simply take a minute to relax and appreciate the beauty of your surroundings. The Atlanta History Center, located in the Buckhead District, is a history museum that includes a variety of exhibits — historic houses, gardens, and a rotating events schedule. Near downtown Atlanta you can find The King Center, a historic site and “living memorial” dedicated to the life and legacy of celebrated civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The King Center is located on a 35-acre historical park encompassing several buildings and monuments integral to Dr. King’s history and influence. For those interested in science and marine life, Atlanta boasts a world-class aquarium. Billed as “the largest aquarium in the western hemisphere,” the Georgia Aquarium comprises exhibits featuring thousands of animals and earning the distinction of being only one of four sites in the world to feature a manta ray.

Atlanta also has a much-deserved reputation as a sports town, with the pleasant weather and climate inviting both those who love to play or simply watch. The city is home to five professional sports teams — Atlanta Falcons (NFL), Atlanta Braves (MLB), Atlanta Hawks (NBA), Atlanta Dream (WNBA), and the Atlanta United FC (MLS). College sports are also extremely popular in the state, and Bobby Dodd Stadium at Atlanta’s Georgia Tech is the oldest on-campus college football stadium in the South that remains in use today. The region’s weather is also very conducive to golfing, and a large number of celebrated courses, both public and private, call the Atlanta area home.

Disclosure: A Place for Mom refers to "nursing home" here generally as an umbrella term to include assisted living facilities. It is not used to indicate that the facility meets official state requirements for level of care of a skilled nursing facility, as defined in that particular jurisdiction.
