Atlanta Car Rentals
Coca Cola was invented in Atlanta in May of 1886 by Dr. John S. Pemberton. The swirly script on today’s' can is his handwriting from the day his bookkeeper, Frank Robinson, suggested he call the drink "Coca-Cola." Fans of baseball, the movies and even puppets will find something for them in this inventive state!
Turner FieldWelcome to the Home of the Braves. At the opening game on April 4, 1997, the Braves earned a 5-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs. This stadium includes two large vision board that allow fans to keep track of scores around the league on one while eyeing the other to watch the game. The 1996 Summer Olympic Games were held partially on the ground beneath the Grand Entry Plaza, the main entrance to the field. As you are parking, take a look at the parking lot. It's designed with an outline of the playing field with the bases and even a marker for Hank Aaron's 715th home run.
