Itinerary

Up to 4 Hours Arrive Atlanta, explore the airport
More Than 4 Hours In Hapeville and near the airport
All Day In downtown Atlanta

Highlights of the trip

  • Explore the impressive art collection at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
  • Learn more about aviation at Delta Flight Museum
  • Rev your engines at Porsche Experience Center Atlanta
  • Venture into the heart of Atlanta to experience the sights

Less Than 4 Hours

If your layover is less than six hours, explore the myriad options available at ATL. Stroll the airport’s Art Program, which includes commissioned, site-specific artwork; rotating exhibitions; and performing arts series. The airport also hosts live performances throughout the facility daily.

For your shopping or dining pleasures, ATL offers more than 300 outlets, guaranteeing you find a way to while away the layover time. We personally enjoy One Flew South for first-rate cuisine. Or, to relax some, consider purchasing passes to member lounges throughout the airport.

More Than 4 Hours

If your flight schedule allows, venture outside the airport. Stick close to the airport and visit the Delta Flight Museum, celebrating aviation history and the story of Delta Air Lines. The museum is closed Wednesdays.

Also nearby is Porsche Experience Center Atlanta. Here, you can partake in the driving school, visit the simulator lab, take a tour or dine at Restaurant 356.

The Hapeville neighborhood, conveniently located to ATL, offers a historic downtown to stroll and quality dining options like Pit Boss BBQ and Volare Wine & Bistro.

All Day

If you have nearly a full day between flights, Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority offers a train from the airport to city center in approximately 20–30 minutes. Choose an activity for the day that best suits your interests, but we recommend Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola or the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
