A walk on the Beltline between Krog Street Market and Ponce City Market, with a stop-over at New Realm Brewing. Then continue onto Piedmont Park if you like walking.

2 weeks is too long, but I gather from your first post you're just driving through on a long trip and want to hang out for a few days while passing through? That's how I would do this.

An Atlanta United game is a very good suggestion; it's almost worth timing your trip around this as it's very cool and fun.

There are a ton of breweries here- Monday night, Orpheus, Sweetwater and about 20 more. Ponce City and Krog St. If clubbing is your thing- Opera, Ravine, Gold Room. If bars are your thing- there are a ton on the beltline- East Atlanta Village, Old 4th ward, Midtown. Tons of Strip Clubs- Follies, Magic City, Pink Pony and the list goes on. Definitely recc a hawks or Atlanta United Game. Dont forget the superbowl will be here in a few weeks also, there are parties and things to do all week during that time.

Agree with the prior posters- Stone Mountain, whole downtown area- CNN, Coke, Aquarium, College Football hall of Fame, and a lot more. Buckhead has your high end shopping and Dining.

Also, let's not encourage people to visit Hard Rock Cafe. It's exactly like every other Hard Rock.
Atlantic Station, Lenox Mall, and Phipps Plaza are all accessible by MARTA rail.
Geez this suggestion is like every non-local tour guide booklet you find at rest stops.
Cyclorama is about to reopen. Not sure of the exact date. But it doesn't really sound like the OP's cup of tea.

Go park down near Krog Street market and grab some food at the food court. Walk down to Inman park on the Beltline and grab some drinks. You can make your way down to Ponce Market. Hawks tickets are easy. Downtown is also a lot of fun. Go check out the Hyatt and Marriott hotels downtown; then go up to the Westin observation deck. After that you can walk over to Centennial park. You could check out the aquarium or College football hall of fame. If there's a Hawks game; head over to the CNN center and the Hawks game. I would try to stay downtown. There are some good rates if you are coming after the Super Bowl and a weekend there aren't any conventions. I think downtown, Midtown, and old 4th ward are the hottest spots. Atlanta is a fun city - enjoy.

If only you would utilize it one-way permanently.

What? Nobody mentioned CREATIVE LOAFING?

https://creativeloafing.com/HomePage
Creative Loafing is Atlanta's guide to the arts, music, food & drink, comedy, film and news.

Interesting guide to food
https://www.zagat.com/b/10-iconic-di...lf-an-atlantan

Though not mentioned, one shouldn't miss country fried steak and milk gravy.

Any local dish with onions probably feature Vidalia "sweet" onions - a local variety - most excellent - minimal bitterness. Needs special low-sulphur soil.

There are four seasons : November, December, January and Summer. [A/C essential]

Atlanta telephone exchange is the largest "local" exchange in America...actually it’s the world's largest toll-free local calling zone. But you need to dial ten digits.
(I grew up in an area where it was 'long distance' to call a city 12 miles away. In hot 'Lanta's local zone you could call someone up to 110 miles away as a 'local call.')
