High Museum of Art

It is hard to miss this ultra-modern, stark white structure that houses Atlanta's finest collections of classic and contemporary art. A towering atrium soars to four interior levels, with the galleries moving from 18th and 19th Century collections near the ground floor to cutting edge art on the upper levels. The High has increased in size to 312,000 square feet with three buildings designed by renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano: the Susan and John Wieland Pavilion, the Anne Cox Chambers Wing for galleries, and an office building. The High is a frequent host to some of the world's most important touring collections and has hosted exhibitions featuring artists like Pablo Picasso and Norman Rockwell. With over 15000 works in the permanent collection, the High also displays old prints of Abe Lincoln and of General William Tecumseh Sherman and an array of sculptures and photographs.

Georgia State Capitol

Standing tall over Capitol Square, The Georgia State Capitol commands historic and architectural importance. Colored in rich white, the building displays a blend of neoclassical and classical revival architecture. It features elements like detailed pilasters and Corinthian columns which support a four-story front porch, or portico. The rounded dome is laden with gold leaf, and a statue of the Goddess of Liberty stands at it very top. The monument features a museum that chronicles the history of the state through various historic artifacts like portraits, statues, relics and fossils. It serves as the primary legislative building of the government of Georgia and also houses several office chambers where the General Assembly meets every year.

Holliday-Dorsey-Fife House Museum

This majestic antebellum house and city landmark, built in 1855, is now converted into a historic museum housing a variety of historic exhibits. Passed down through several historic Fayetteville families (which explains the multiple names), the museum features an exhibit of memorabilia from Margaret Mitchell's Gone With The Wind, a replica of the first flag made in Fayette County, relics from the Civil War and a garden of native and historically important plants! Self-guided and guided tours available.

Heritage Green Park

Located in the heart of Sandy Springs, Heritage Green is a public park that is operated by the Heritage Sandy Springs organization, which is a not-for-profit entity that strives to preserve the heritage and culture of the city. A nice grassy space, it is a good spot to walk your dog or spend some time with your family. Admission is free to the park, which comprises attractions like the Sandy Springs Historic Site, the Sandy Springs Society Entertainment Lawn, and the Williams Payne House Museum. Also, the park is home to the original natural springs that have been preserved.

Candler Park

A Civil War landmark as well as an expansive verdant oasis, Candler Park offers tennis courts, basketball courts, soccer fields and an outdoor pool. Perhaps the park's most unique feature is its nine-hole golf course that winds its scenic way through one of the east side's most pleasant residential neighborhoods. Often crowded, Candler Park is not the ideal place for a quiet jog, but sports are always being played and everyone is welcome.

Grant Park

Created mostly with land granted by Colonel Lemuel Grant, the "Father of Atlanta," Grant Park is the oldest surviving park in the city. Its landscape was part of the defensive line against Union forces in the Civil War, and the breastworks of Fort Walker remain as evidence of the Confederacy's defeat. The Cyclorama, a circular building filled with the world's largest painting, tells the story of the battle. The park's other main attraction is Zoo Atlanta, one of the only places in the country that you can see a set of giant pandas.
