ATLANTApix: Millennium Gate

The Millennium Gate
The Millennium Gate
Today is my mother's birthday (Happy birthday, Mother!). If she were in town, I would show her how much Atlanta has changed since her last visit and the Millennium Gate would definitely be on that tour. It's one of my favorite structures in the city and I'm sure she'd like it as well.

Speaking of special occasions, the Millennium Gate has been the site of choice for many such events, including weddings (get your booking now if you're looking for "the" must-be-wed-at destination) and corporate events.

The museum inside (Surprise! It's a museum, too.) is fantastic. When I visited on my brother's birthday in late December 2010, I learned more about the history of Atlanta in a short period of time than I had in any other single visit anywhere. 

And they use state-of-the-art technology to ensure their tour is supremely unique from any other tour in Atlanta. If you've played Wii and liked it, you're going to love the interactive discovery room where you can tour the city with a "paddle" can't do that on the Chattahoochee

If you plan ahead or have lucky timing during an impromptu tour, a trip to the rooftop vista will favor your skyline-hungry eyes with one of the best views of downtown Atlanta. The entire site is amazing...your visit promises to be as grand as the Millennium Gate is itself.

ATLANTApix of the tourATLANTA blog features a "photo-of-the-day" of Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!

Ditto. It's like entering a whole 'nother place.
