Driving in Atlanta: parking and other tips

Like any big American city, you can expect traffic jams and rush hour traffic in Atlanta but driving is the number one way to get around the city. It’s easy to get disoriented in the city streets so if your Atlanta rental car doesn’t come with a city map, make sure you pick one up at your earliest convenience.

Parking is easy in Atlanta once you get the hang of it. It’s popular for restaurants and shops in downtown Atlanta to offer complimentary valet service, otherwise there are plenty of public car parks for a small fee.

Road trips from Atlanta: what to do, what to see

Stone Mountain

Stone Mountain

Stone Mountain is certainly one of the most unique visitor attractions in Georgia and is just a 30-minute drive away from Atlanta. Visitors can either hike up to the top, or take a cable car. The granite mountain also features the largest bas-relief sculpture in the world, a picture of Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and Thomas Jackson.

Helen

Helen

This small town looks like something you’d find in Aspen or up in the mountains. It’s a darling little place that is very popular in the autumn, when all the leaves on the trees start to change colours. Take a hike to see the Anna Ruby Falls in the Chattahoochee National Forest.

Dahlonega

Dahlonega

Gold rush! Dahlonega is in Georgia’s Historic High Country and was the site of a major gold rush. Gold mining continues to be a big part of the city’s industry and also tourism. Visit the Consolidated Gold Mine, Grisson’s Gold Mine and the Dahlonga Gold Museum while you’re here.
