No trip to Atlanta is complete without a visit to Ponce City Market. From a rooftop beer garden to an outdoor arcade, Ponce City Market has the city’s premiere selection of food and drink. PCM features over 30 premier food vendors serving whatever your heart desires. They also offer cooking classes, rooftop yoga, movie screenings and much more. 


If you can stand the Summer heat, take a walk, jog or bike ride along Atlanta’s famous BeltLine. Once a railroad track, the BeltLine has been converted into a sidewalk trail that will eventually encompass all of Atlanta. It has spurred major developments in retail, dining and housing, completely transforming the area.


Visiting the Georgia Aquarium is sure fire way to escape the sweltering southern heat and humidity. Located just three miles from the tournament site at the Atlantic Station, the Georgia Aquarium is the largest in the U.S. and contains over 100,000 animals including whale sharks, bottlenose dolphins, manta rays and hundreds of other species.  


Not just some pretty flowers and towering trees, the Atlanta Botanical Garden boasts some pretty out-of-this-world exhibits. Dive down the rabbit-hole in the Botanical Garden’s breathtaking Imaginary Worlds: Alice’s Wonderland, which includes a 27-foot tall rabbit overlooking the Queen of Heart’s garden, playing card soldiers and all. While you are there, mix and mingle at Atlanta’s prettiest cocktail party, Cocktails in the Garden, every Thursday from 5:30-9:30 p.m. ET.
