Grant Park

With Victorian-architectural homes and mansions, Grant Park is a historic neighborhood with wonderful attractions and things to do. The Zoo is one of the favorite ones because of all the animal encounters provided. Kids and adults are welcome to visit this place every day of the year from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm, except Thanksgiving and Christmas. Elephants, giraffes, zebras, meerkats, rhinos and some more will be part of your experience!

If you are into history, the Atlanta Cyclorama and Civil War is always a fun place to visit. Here, you will be able to see the world's largest oil painting, as well as some work done by German artists in 1885. Texas, a steam locomotive, is also here so don't miss the opportunity to check it out and learn more about the history behind.

Grant Park is also known for its dining experience that has a variety of options. If you are looking for brunch, then you have to check out Ria's Bluebird, where you will get the chance to try their pancakes, rates by the New York Times as the best ones in the World. Impressive, right? So definitely try that and save some space for later in the day. There is a fun spot that you will enjoy: Augustine's gastropub. With a large menu of food that includes burgers, salads, sandwiches and more, this place has a great atmosphere with a wide selection of beer, wine, and cocktails.
