This Week: Metro Atlanta and Wiregrass Highway

On this week's episode of Georgia Traveler, we explore some of the sites in Georgia's capital city of Atlanta. We find fine art at the High Museum and discover fun at Turner Field, Home of the Braves. We visit with the animals above and below the water's surface at Zoo Atlanta and the Georgia Aquarium. We explore the history of the Cyclorama, and what would any trip to Atlanta be without a chili cheese dog and onion rings at the Varsity?
