Atlanta, Georgia is a great getaway and a lot of fun. Affectionately known as a little New York and The Beverly Hills of The South, there are plenty of things to do. Since I love to save money when I travel, I want to first give you a few money-saving tips for your next trip to this fabulous city!
Here’s how to save some cash on the things you’ll want to do in Atlanta.
- Groupon Atlanta offers all types of discounts on various activities and food around town. Just like using Groupon at home, why not save on eating out and any other activities you do while you’re on vacation?
- The Atlanta CityPass is a budget lifesaver. I highly recommend checking this out. The Atlanta CityPass allows you save over 40% while selecting five activities. Rather than paying for all your tickets separately (and paying more), you save by buying them together. You do get some flexibility in the tickets you choose as part of your pass. Click to learn more.
- Scout Mob Atlanta offers discounted food and activities around Atlanta, much like Groupon.
These three sites will help you save all kinds of money on your trip. The Atlanta CityPass mentions several places you might want to visit, so how do you decide? Here’s a little more information on some of them, plus a few others.Things to do and Ways to Save on Your Trip to #Atlanta | #travel #frugal Click To Tweet

The Center for Human and Civil Rights is an amazing experience and perhaps a wake up call for some. Overall the visit is emotional, but almost everyone agrees it is worthwhile for adults and children.

Great blog post! We drive through Atlanta on each of our trips to FL and while we have stayed outside the city, we have thought about making a dedicated trip to Atlanta to vacation.
