In July of 2014, Dr. Timothy Lietz admitted a patient suffering from a mysterious disease to his lab. Although she should have been dead?all her vital signs were virtually absent, save for a trickle of brain activity?the former medical student suffered from violent fits and, well, episodes of biting. The violent virus soon spread to the rest of the staff, including Dr. Lietz, as evidenced in the doctor's haunting audio logs. The disease has since spread, creating hordes of what are now recognized as zombies. Visitors to Zombie Works, located at Dosser Works paintball arena, have one mission: take out the zombies. Armed with paintball guns, the spooked survivors must take on scores of the undead, who succumb just as quickly to the impact of paintballs as they do to an axe in the skull or a very loud recording of the guitar solo from "Crazy Train."

When he isn't producing concerts for superstars like Jay Z, Mary J. Blige, and Earth Wind & Fire, Dwight McQueen runs Atlanta Black History Tour. Conducted on foot or in comfortable motor coaches, each excursion stops by historic landmarks that illustrate African American history stretching back to before the Civil War. Explore one of the city's seven black colleges, check out the African artistry on display inside the Hammonds House Museum, and visit several places that were dear to Atlanta native Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Tours stop by his childhood home as well as Ebenezer Baptist Church, where he was baptized as a baby and later, at 19, ordained as a minister.

Mei Lun and Mei Huan were born in 2013 to much excitement—the cubs are the only the second pair of twin giant pandas born in the U.S. The zoo also boasts the largest collection of gorillas and orangutans, though kids will likely be more impressed by the giraffe exhibit, where they can help feed the long-necked mammals their leafy lunch.

The centerpiece of this museum is the 42-foot-tall oil painting Cyclorama. The world’s largest oil painting, it depicts the Civil War Battle of Atlanta, and features an awe-inspiring foreground enhanced with three dimensional objects and figures. Impressive as the painting is, young visitors may get more excited about another Civil War-era artifact: the steam locomotive Texas.
