Sometimes, it's best to see your own area through the eyes of a tourist.

Georgia Aquarium by Richard WeisserI had out of town visitors at the house last Friday, Saturday and Sunday. And they wanted to see the local sights and to get out and have some fun!

So it was up to me to plan an itinerary of places to go go and things to do!

We started on Friday by heading to Warm Springs Georgia for lunch at the Bulloch House and after we were loaded with fried chicken and green tomatoes, we toured Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Little White House. We followed that with a trip to the spring itself, and then a visit to Dowdell's Know which was one of the late president's favorite picnic spots!

On Saturday we lunched at the famous Varsity Drive-in in Atlanta, followed by a trip to the Atlanta Zoo. After seeing all of the animals, we went to the Cyclorama to see the civil war museum in addition to the largest oil painting in the world! We finished Saturday off with a fine dinner at Frank's Fine Foods, right here in Coweta County!

The Little White House in Warm SpringsSunday morning took us back to downtown Atlanta, to visit the largest Aquarium in the world ...The Georgia Aquarium! While there, we toured the Titanic exhibit which has hundreds of artifacts recovered from under the sea. It was amazing. After the Aquarium, we spent the rest of the afternoon in Centennial Olympic Park, which was bustling with activity of a beautiful Spring Day.

Then it was off to Ru-Sans for sushi. The last thing we did was an auto tour of the beautiful antebellum homes in Newnan, where I work every day.

We all had a great time, and the truth is, I haven't really looked at where I live through the eyes of a tourist in a long time!

Atlanta is a great place to live, and there is plenty to do and see! We already have a long list of places to go and things to do next time!

And I can't wait!

Richard:  It is always refreshing to see our surroundings from the eyes of a tourist.  Atlanta has been one of my favorite stops for years.

Its so amazing how often we go by stuff without really seeing them until we have a visitor with us.  Its fun to be a tourist in your area.  Gorgeous photos as always.
