Atlanta Information and Schedule

Other history museums and attractions include the Atlanta History Center; the Atlanta Cyclorama and Civil War Museum; the Carter Center and Presidential Library; and the Margaret Mitchell House and Museum. The arts are represented by several theaters and museums, including the Fox Theatre. The Woodruff Arts Center is home to the Alliance Theatre, Atlanta Symphony, High Museum of Art, and Atlanta College of Art. Museums geared specifically towards children include the Fernbank Science Center and Imagine It! Atlanta's Children's Museum. The High Museum of Art is the city's major fine/visual arts venue, with a significant permanent collection and an assortment of traveling exhibitions.

A unique museum is the World of Coca-Cola featuring the history of the world famous soft drink brand and its well-known advertising. Adjacent is Underground Atlanta, a historic shopping and entertainment complex situated under the streets of downtown Atlanta. While not a museum per se, The Varsity is the main branch of the long-lived fast food chain, featured as the world's largest drive-in restaurant.

Atlanta has a rich sports history, including the first intercollegiate football game in the South, Auburn vs. Georgia in 1892. Currently it hosts college football's annual Peach Bowl and the Peachtree Road Race, the world’s largest 10K race. Atlanta was the host city for the Centennial 1996 Summer Olympics. Centennial Olympic Park was built for 1996 Summer Olympics, in a downtown area of dilapidated buildings. It is now operated by the Georgia World Congress Center Authority.

The city is also host to four different major league sports. The Atlanta Braves baseball team has been the Major League Baseball franchise of Atlanta since 1966; the franchise was previously known as the Boston Braves (1912-1952), and the Milwaukee Braves (1953-1965). The team was founded in 1871 in Boston, Massachusetts as a National Association club, making it the oldest continuously operating sports franchise in North American sports. The Braves won the World Series in 1995 and have had an unprecedented run of thirteen divisional championships since 1991.

The Atlanta Falcons American football team has been Atlanta's National Football League franchise since 1966. They have won the division title three times and a conference championship once, only to go on to lose to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXXIII.

The Atlanta Hawks basketball team has been the National Basketball Association franchise of Atlanta since 1969; the team was previously known as the Tri-Cities Blackhawks (1946-1951), Milwaukee Hawks (1951-55), St. Louis Hawks (1955-68). Their only NBA championship was in 1958, when they were the St. Louis Hawks.

The Atlanta Thrashers hockey team has been Atlanta's National Hockey League franchise since 1999, replacing the Atlanta Flames which departed for Calgary in 1980, becoming the Calgary Flames. They have yet to make it to the playoffs.

Other nearby sports facilities includes Atlanta Motor Speedway, a 1.5 mile (2.4 km) NASCAR race track in Hampton, Georgia.

Atlanta is home to the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl plays at the Georgia Dome and matches a SEC team against an ACC opponent.
