Atlanta Layover Itinerary

Atlanta Layover Itinerary

When your travels take you through Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on a layover, you have plenty of options for shopping, entertainment and dining.


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 Water Club at Borgata Review

My husband and I arrived to The Water Club Hotel at the Borgata in Atlantic City, New Jersey, for our two-night stay and drove directly to valet parking. After the swift drop-off process, we took the escalator to the lobby to check in. With no one ahead of us in line, we were checked in and on our way to our room on the 30th floor in no time.
