ATLANTApix: No-Cost Atlanta

I find myself shocked, amazed, and totally baffled when I hear people say "I'm bored" or "There's nothing to do." Now, when I hear "There's nothing on TV," that I'm inclined to agree with, but will never agree that there's nothing to do. There is so much to do in Atlanta and lots of it is available without an exchange of currency.

For example, tours of the Georgia Governor's Mansion (photo) cost nothing and it's an amazing tour. Tours of the Georgia Capitol Building are also a no-cost outing and they have an intriguing museum on the fourth floor. There are free concerts at Centennial Olympic Park on a regular basis. And there's always something going on in Piedmont Park, such as films, festivals, charity walks, as there are in other public parks in Atlanta.

Those are only a few of the many examples of things to do in Atlanta. For those on a tight budget looking for something to do, scroll through my blog and at the end of each post you'll find the cost (or no cost) for the tour in question. It's an easy way to find something to do on those days when the plague of boredom visits.

While you're here, subscribe (right column) to receive regular posts of new places to visit and new exhibits to see. Happy touring!
