I will be going to Atlanta with my younger brother (18) and we want to know what Atlanta has to offer. No bars or 21+ clubs as he isn't old enough yet, so with that limitation, what are the top 5 best things to do in Atlanta and why?
Catch a Braves game Turner Field
Smell the roses Atlanta Botanical Garden
See a Whale Shark Georgia Aquarium
Get your civil rights education on Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change
Get your science nerd on Fernbank Museum of Natural History

Try the new Ferris Wheel at Centennial Olympic Park to see a view of the city.
Stone Mountain you get to be outside with a variety to choose from, I suggest picnicking or grilling out. You can have a good time without a lot of $$.
In the Olympic park (not sure of official name) there's ice skating during winter. I went last January - it had a fairly young crowd but everyone blended well. By young I mean high schoolers/and young families.
There's a huge Ferris wheel near that park as well. Walking distance in fact.
The The Varsity is a pretty "it place" to eat for casual food. Always loads of people there.
