Atlanta Arts Festivals and Fairs
Branded pieces can be found at many arts festivals and fairs throughout the diverse neighborhoods in DeKalb County and Fulton County. Every year arts festivals- including the Dogwood Festival in April- are held in Piedmont Park on the border of the the Virginia Highlands and Midtown Atlanta. Artists set up tents in the park and sell their wares, many of which are homemade. In addition to finding Atlanta themed items at these venues, visitors can also relax in the beautiful Spring weather before heading to the shops and outdoor eateries located throughout eclectic neighborhoods such as Inman Park and Little Five Points. Anyone up for a challenge should try the Double Bypass Burger at The Vortex Bar & Grill, located in both Little Five Points and Midtown Atlanta. This beef burger is topped with two fried eggs, six pieces of cheese, eight slices of bacon and is squeezed in between two grilled cheese sandwiches. Eat the whole thing and take home a commemorative item to remember it by.
Atlanta Tourist Attractions
After perusing the smaller neighborhoods of Inman Park, the Virginia Highlands and Little Five Points, residents and tourist should head into the heart of Fulton County. Midtown Atlanta is home to the historic Fox Theatre (whose edifice is imprinted on many Atlanta souvenires), the Woodruff Arts Center, and the High Museum of Art amongst many other concert venues and art halls. While Downtown Atlanta is primarily known as Fulton County's business district, tourist attractions such as the CNN Center, Georgia Aquarium and World of Coca-Cola are located here. Tourists can find gift items imprinted with news anchors' faces as well as a wide range of products with the world-renown Coca-Cola logo. Many sports venues are also located in Downtown Atlanta and residents come from Inman Park, Virginia Highlands and even Norcross or Marietta to cheer for their hometown teams.
Atlanta on the Field and in the Arena
Although Atlanta sports teams are relatively new compared to many teams in professional sports leagues, loyal fans never miss a game. The Falcons, Atlanta's National Football League team, have played in Fulton County since 1966 and proudly boasts three division titles, as well as one conference championship. Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks professional basketball team has played in Downtown Atlanta since 1968, shortly after the Braves started playing baseball in Georgia. Arguably the most famous sporting event ever held in Downtown Atlanta was the 1996 Olympic games, where 10,320 athletes competed in 271 events. Collectors still look for pins and other celebratory items from these Olympics.
