As the old saying goes, "when in Georgia, ride around on a giant peach." While the Peach Pedaler may not actually be shaped like a peach, it does have a peachy hue. This 14-passenger pedal-powered bike hosts tours across Atlanta's Centennial Park and hot spots including the World of Coca-Cola, the CNN Center, and Georgia Aquarium. The pub crawl stops at up to two pubs around downtown at speeds nearing 8 miles an hour or you can design your own tour complete with a custom playlist and a bench seat for freeloaders.

Struggles to establish recognition of fundamental human rights continue to take place around the world. The Center for Civil and Human Rights aims to deepen visitors' understanding of these struggles for equality by bridging the gap between past and present movements. Galleries here encourage reflection on the American Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and '60s before connecting those events to global movements happening today.

  • Size: It typically takes around 90 minutes to explore the three main galleries' exhibits of historic documents, artifacts, and interactive activities.
  • The Building: a collaborative design by The Freelon Group's Phil Freelon?Obama appointee to the National Commission of Fine Arts and recipient of the Thomas Jefferson Award for Public Architecture?and Atlanta-based HOK
  • Exhibitions: There is a civil rights exhibition created by George C. Wolfe, a respected Broadway director and writer whose r?sum? includes Tony Award?winning sensations Bring in Da Noise, Bring in Da Funk and Angels in America. The human rights gallery was curated by Jill Savitt, who serves as a special advisor at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. The Center?s unique and interactive exhibitions were designed by David Rockwell and Rockwell Group.
  • Eye Catcher: 34-foot-tall outdoor water sculpture by artist Larry Kirkland inscribed with quotes by Nelson Mandela and Margaret Mead
  • Permanent Mainstay: archival footage documenting important events and personal stories from the American Civil Rights Movement from 1954 to 1968
  • Don't Miss: the rotating selection of items from The Morehouse College Martin Luther King, Jr. Collection, which includes handwritten notes, speech drafts, and personal effects that belonged to Dr. King

It takes a lot more than knowledge of the area to be an Atlanta Specialty Tours guide. You also have to know the city's history?not to mention how to turn all that knowledge into a compelling story. That's just what guides do on their tours, each of which focuses on a different aspect of Atlanta and its history. The four-hour driving tour, for instance, hits all the city's tourist highlights, from Civil War relics to the sites of the Centennial Olympic Games of 1996. The Civil Rights tour focuses on a narrower band of time, when the first newspapers and radio stations owned by African Americans were founded and Dr. Martin Luther King opened his SCLC offices on Auburn Avenue. Other tours highlight the city's restaurant scene or the unique personalities of its neighborhoods, from up-and-coming Inman Park to Emory/Druid Hill with its college students and hills lined with chanting druids.

Shopping for groceries might sound like a chore, but it's actually one of the many fun, hands-on activities available at The Children's Museum of Atlanta. In the Fundamentally Food exhibit, kids can whip up tasty pretend meals in a playhouse kitchen and load fruits and veggies onto a delivery truck. Fundamentally Food is among the Children's Museum's year-round exhibits, whose interactive stations are geared toward children up to 8 years old. Children can mold sculptures from moon sand, create original paintings on the giant paint wall, or don raincoats before fishing in the stream of the Museum's magical forest.

The Children's Museum's troupe of professional actors and educators known as the Imaginators?considered "experts on entertaining children" by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution?specialize in performing original 20-minute musicals. Their other programs include Imaginator-led story-time, crafts, dancing, interactive music programming, and cooking activities based on Georgia produce. The Children's Museum also offers private birthday parties, summer camps, and family memberships.

Crowds of colorfully dressed teams gather on the date of the race armed with a digital camera or cell phone to document each task that they perform. Using nothing but their feet, public transportation, and knowledge of the city, teams must solve 11 out of 12 clues and return to the starting line. The teams with the best times are rewarded for their efforts with prizes, and all participants go home with a T-shirt and swag bag to stow excess confidence.
