Top 5 Parent Picks when visiting Emory University:
Visit the Georgia Aquarium, the largest aquarium in the US with the largest single tank in the world. You will see everything from whale sharks to sea dragons.
Plan Sunday morning brunch at General Muir where you will find all of the students hanging out. They serve food reminiscent of a Jewish deli with pastrami sandwiches and bagels and lox. It has a very college feel with a great bakery too for a quick snack. Make sure to arrive early! Or try the Flying Biscuit which serves a classic southern breakfast and lunch. It has less of a college feel because it is located slightly off campus. The classic menu includes grits, biscuits, and sweet tea.
Grab seats for a sports game either at SunTrust Park or the Mercedes Benz Stadium.
Enjoy a beer and a meal at the Brick Store Pub, a beer-focused tavern where you will likely find many college students here all nights of the week, due to their great food and expansive beer list.
Explore Ponce City Market, the former Sears, Roebuck & Company building, which houses everything from shops, food halls, offices and event spaces. Many staples of Atlanta can be found here like King of Pops and honeysuckle gelato.
