What's not to miss in Atlanta?

Heading to Atlanta for a long weekend with adult family members. What's not to miss? Food? Museums? Do you know of any excellent tours of the city?

The High Museum of Art is pretty cool, sometimes more than others depending on the featured exhibits. Of course if you like soda, or even if you don't, the World of Coca-Cola offers an interesting tour and is right by the Georgia Aquarium and Centennial Olympic Park should those strike your fancy.  

For food, there is an abundance of exceptional food in Atlanta, and it would seem a bit silly to tell you my favorites since it really depends on what cuisine you're in the mood for and what part of town your in. My suggestion would be to use trip advisor when you start to get peckish to track down a high rated place close to you. There are also a couple great food truck parks if you're around at the right times. If you're there on a Sunday get some brunch. 

 For tours, if you're into segways I've seen several around the city. 

Make sure to check out what events may be going on at the time as there's always something and that may impact your decision. If you're sports fans of course Falcons and braves games are lots of fun. Finally downtown Decatur is in my opinion the best walkable part of town for those over 30.

The #1 must see for Atlanta is the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site. You can tour the museum, his house, Ebenezer Baptist Church--all for free and all in one of Atlanta's most historic neighborhoods.
