Sibling Shenanigans at 720ft

Atlanta

My brother came to visit! And in the tradition of great Sibling Shenanigans, we packed a ton into two days, went all over this town, ate Irish food, and got up to general shenanigans and malarkey.

Here’s everything we did on Sibling Shenanigans Day 1:

After showing Ryne my apartment, we hopped on MARTA and went downtown to the Westin Peachtree Plaza.

Atlanta

We like our hijinks high, so up to the top of the hotel we went! The glass elevators took us up to Level 72 to The View at the Sun Dial Restaurant. The restaurant floor rotated lazily below as we walked the 360 panorama view. All cities should be viewed from above, and now I can check the Peachtree Plaza off my Atlanta Bucket List.

Back down to earth, we walked over to Centennial Olympic Park.

Centennial Park

Centennial Olympic Park is a 21-acre public park built as part of the city improvements for the Centennial 1996 Summer Olympics. The park was paid for in part by donations through the engraved bricks. Our grandparents have a brick in the park, but we didn’t know where to find it, and we didn’t happen upon it just by wandering around. Running through the fountain is on my Atlanta Bucket List, but it was a little chilly, so I’ve satisfied my requirement for now with sticking my hand in the fountain. I’ll come back and run through when it’s warmer, promise!

To get out of the chilly weather, we opted for going indoors and touring CNN.

CNN

The Inside CNN Studio Tour takes you on a behind the scenes look at the inner workings of CNN. You get to see how a live broadcast is produced and sent to viewers around the world, and you get to spy on people as they work diligently (or not so diligently), so it’s a win-win really. The tour starts with a trip up the world’s longest freestanding elevator (196ft long and 8 stories high), which used to be how you entered The World of Sid and Marty Krofft entirely indoor amusement park that was housed here in the 1970s and only lasted 6 months. So now I can check that off of my Atlanta Bucket List and my never-ending Roadside America list.

We ended our Sibling Shenanigans Day 1 with dinner at an Irish pub.

Then we hopped on MARTA back home to watch a movie and rest for our Sibling Shenanigans Adventure Day 2.

Cheers!
