1. Use a local guide

With some good research, you will find a tourist information center that can assign you a local guide at a fee.

Some tour websites like GetYourGuide and Viator also bring these local guides together so that travellers can browse through a variety of group tours and day trips led by locals.

You can also check to see if there are any private Atlanta tours that might interest you.

2. Rent a car

There are so many ways you can explore Atlanta, the best way being by car.

If you are looking for a luxurious way to go around the city at your own convenience, consider hiring a vehicle of your choice from a reputable rental company. You can do this by visiting an exotic car rental website with a variety of vehicles ranging from business class to luxurious sports cars.

The good thing with driving yourself around Atlanta is that you are free to explore all corners of the city through GPS navigation.

3. Visit the Atlanta Botanical Garden

This is a great place to unwind after a series of business errands or when taking a leisure trip. The Atlanta Botanical Garden is home to thousands of plants, insects, and small animals for you to enjoy.

4. Take a city tour

There are many organized city tours in Atlanta. You can enjoy the all-new city tour using an electric car. These vehicles look small, but they are comfortable and fun to ride in. Apart from meeting other enthusiasts, the driver gives an elaborate history of all of the popular places they stop.

If riding in such a car is not a good idea for you, you can still use a trolley for a popular 90-minute trolley tour.
