A stroll through the park is a lovely idea for a Sunday. Personally, I'm inclined to theme my activities, parties, photos, etc. So, with what's happening in London at the moment, how about taking today's stroll through Centennial Olympic Park?
Centennial Olympic Park is one of our brilliant legacies from the 1996 Summer Olympic Games, which was also the 100th anniversary of the modern Olympic Games.

Centennial Olympic Park
The Park has a LOT to do and see inside (more than I've had time to discover) and then there's a lot more to see in the area, including:
- Georgia Aquarium,
- The World of Coca-Cola,
- Imagine It! The Children's Museum of Atlanta,
- Inside CNN Studio Tour, and
- just a short walk away is The View on the 72nd floor of the Westin Peachtree Plaza.
Visitors to Centennial Olympic Park are also in the midst of downtown, so there are plenty of shopping, dining, and people-watching opportunities.

Back to the Park. In this photo is the "Quilt of Nations," which depicts the flags of all nations that competed in the 1996 Games. There are also fountains, statuary, sculpture, a playground for the youngsters, a concert venue, concession stands, and during the winter, there's even an ice skating rink!
You know what? Today is "International Beer Day" and Der Biergarten is a block from the Park, so if you're so inclined, there's an idea for you.
Enjoy the pre-sized Facebook Cover Photo...it's yours to use as you wish. When you're done here, please head over to the wanderlust ATLANTA Facebook Page and "Like" it, then explore...there's lots there!
