Going to Atlanta over the summer

Okay guys me and my Girlfriend are planning a trip to Atlanta this summer around mid July..And its been several years since I have been there and if we go I'm sure we will drive my truck as we always do!! But I just can't remember how parking was since my truck is lifted just wonder how bad it's gonna be! I think we are planning on going to a Braves game and zoo,coca-cola factory,aquarium and somewhere else but can't remember what else she wanted to do!! But just wanted to know some input or new stuff that might would be cool to check out!! Thanks Guys!!

Parking for a Braves game and ZOO won't be bad, all outside. For the other stuff you need to look for outside parking. I doubt anything much bigger than a stock 250/350 would fit in the parking deck at the aquarium, it looks pretty low. I think you can hit the World of Coke from the same lot as you would for the big fish tank, but don't quote me on that. I'll bet you won't have any problems, since you already know how to drive the truck!!! You can check out Stone Mountain Park, Six Flags and White Water to name just a few other spots of interest.

Tuned, Deleted, Filtered, Monitored...all the usual stuff.

Okay thanks man yea I mean if I have to walk a bit it would be fine ik when we went before we took my dads f-250 which is the same as mine just without the lift I just have to find a hotel that has some parking besides a parking deck!! If it comes down to it I can drive my dads but would rather drive mine..and thanks for the heads up on the other places didn't even think about those!

You can definately hit the World of Coke and the Aquarium from the same lot. They sit side by side on the same block. As far as hotel is concerned, are you sure you want to stay downtown? You could probably stay just outside of downtown and save some money on room costs and it'd be easier to park.
