Places to see in Atlanta!!!!

Hello I will be traveling to Atlanta for a week from Nov. 26 - Nov. 30. first time. I have been doing a little research and definetely interested in the Goergia Aquarium. I have read about the other attractions such as the Coca-Cola factory, CNN Studios, Underground Atlanta and they have not received very good reviews on Tripadvisor. If you can please help and let me know what will be good places to see. I will be traveling with my boyfriend and we are twenty somethings (25-26) who like more fun attractions. No Museums or historical places unless really interesting backgrounds. Also, if we can have some suggestions on which restaurants would be good to try. Thank You!

Stone Mountain is kinda fun. Take the tram to the top for certain.
Underground Atlanta, well, been there, didn't buy the t-shirt. Kinda smelled sour and a little like bleach.
Six Flags is off I20, not been to the Georgia one, but the Texas one was fun.

There is a diner off I75, north of downtown I think, can't remember the name, but it is a tradition to eat there.

You didn't say what area you'd be staying in but it sounds like you'd enjoy Midtown, just north of downtown. Lots of bars, clubs and good restaurants. Piedmont Park is really nice if you catch the weather at a good time.
I'd stay away from the attractions you've listed except for the aquarium. Stone Mtn is another good place if the weather is nice. Six Flags will be closed in November.

sorry about that, I live in Orlando, the land of never closing theme parks!

The Art Museum is one of the best in the country.

The Cyclorama
The Zoo is supposed to be good.

I was disappointed with The World of Coca Cola plus we had a heck of a time finding a parking place.

Also disappointed in the Carter Center (Pres Carter's Library). It's just not as good as other presidential libraries I have been to.
