Things To Do in Atlanta During Ignite

Saturday, September 24, 2016 10:25 AM
Microsoft Ignite is this week, and I have a number of friends who are heading down (I'm not going this year, but had a great time last year when it was in Chicago).

I've been to Atlanta a couple of times and love the city (not just because my Falcons play there), so here's a short list of things to see and do while in Atlanta.

World of Coca-Cola

There's a saying that the toughest job in the world is being a Pepsi sales rep in Atlanta. Home to Coke, Atlanta has a great museum dedicated to the history of the beverage. In addition to the history, walking through a small-version of a bottling plant, and other attractions, at the end you get to sample Coke products from all over the world.


Georgia Aquarium

Amazing aquarium - the ginormous tank with various fish including a whale shark (!) is worth the visit alone, but this aquarium has multiple exhibits and was a lot of fun.


Waffle House

If you're going to be in the Southern US, you gotta hit up Waffle House at least once for breakfast! Diner-type food and a chain we don't have here in Canada.

Atlanta Braves Baseball

If you've never been to a MLB game before, definitely consider taking some time away from Ignite to go check out a Braves game. Tickets are cheap, and the atmosphere and experience is amazing. When I went we got tickets in the outfield but it was a great view and a relaxing afternoon at the ball park. US sports food is insane too.


Quickshot Shooting Range

OK, so this won't be for everyone but if yelling "GET TO THE CHOPPA" before burning through 500 rounds into a zombie target via a semi or fully automatic weapon sounds fun, then you have to check out Quickshot. Quickshot is a shooting range chain in Georgia and when I went with my buddy we had a great time! Staff were very friendly, patient, and professional. There was a huge range of guns available - just be prepared to drop a few hundred.


Ignite will keep people busy for most of the week, but if you want to tour the city on your own these are some great highlights. Yes - Waffle House is a highlight, don't judge me.
