We visited the 1996 Olympics and walked around the venues and Centennial Olympic Park, played in the Fountain of Rings, strolled across the Great Lawn, watched basketball in the Georgia Dome and enjoyed several of the track and field events. Atlanta was a great host, and put on quite a production with the new stadium (at the time) for the diverse population of visitors. Marred by a bomb blast on July 27th, the Olympic Spirit was shaken but undeterred in promoting healthy competition and goodwill around the world. If you are in Atlanta, check out this historic area downtown.

I was lucky to be able to spend a few days in and around the park during the first week of the 1996 Olympics, including attending several sporting events nearby (men's basketball and gymnastics in the Georgia Dome and weightlifting in the World Congress Center). We haven't been back since the Georgia Aquarium was built...need to visit again.
