This is a guest blog post by Chris Giovino.

Are you coming to Atlanta for the CSCMP Edge conference? Have you thought about making a long weekend out of it and spending some time out of the conference?    Maybe your flight out after the conference leaves you with a few hours to burn downtown. 

Here are some of the things Atlanta has to offer. 

Things to do while you are not at the conference

1. Tour the World of Coke

With Coke's headquarters in Atlanta, the World of Coke is a great place to taste the famous beverage from the source.

2. Visit the Georgia Aquarium 

Rated one of the best aquariums in the US, this is a must see should you be visiting and have half a day on your hands

3. Take a walk in Piedmont Park

Need an outdoor stroll from the hustle and bustle of Atlanta. Try the 185 acres of Piedmont Park located northeast of downtown!

4. Visit CNN Headquarters

The news giant conducts behind the scene tours of the offices that launched the 24 hour news cycle.
