Sightseeing in Atlanta, Georgia

I've Moved! The Boomer Chronicles has closed after 6 years, but you can keep up with me on my new blog at

I spent a few days last week in Atlanta at a conference. In my spare time I took in some of the sights. First, you must remember while visiting this city that it’s Coke’s world, and we just live in it. Coke was founded here and there’s a Coke museum that’s $16 to get into and it’s basically just an extended commercial. The best part is that there is a tasting room where you can sample Coca-Cola brand sodas from all over the world. Next, it’s full summer in Atlanta, witness the wisteria. I went to Gone with the Wind author Margaret Mitchell’s house and saw her typewriter. That painting of Scarlett is the one used in the movie, apparently. I love the houses in Georgia as they mostly have deep porches that front the houses and nice columns. I made a pilgrimage to the town of Millegeville to see the home of the late Flannery O’Connor. That’s a peacock on her property and that’s her actual bed. I had some great Southern food at Pittypat’s and Mary Mac’s Tea Room. While I was gallivanting around, my Canine Prince relaxed in Boston.
