Things to do on a layover at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport

Because we have the most frugal booking agent on the planet, 
we had a five hour layover at ATL heading to our conference in Florida.  That meant with getting to the gate to board, we had about four hours to explore the busiest airport in the world.

The History of Atlanta
image
Located underground between Terminals C and B is a museum that details the history of Atlanta, which was originally named Marthasville after Georgia Governor Wilson Lumpkin’s daughter Martha.
image
The museum, which stretches over two football fields in length, incorporates huge wall displays with plaque displays and video monitors with related videos for each era of Atlanta’s history, from the original Native American inhabitants and European settlement to the Civil War and Civil Rights Movement through the present day.

Antarctica
As you traverse underground from Terminal A all the way to E, there are several different hallways with almost 60 pictures of Antarctica.
image
Santiago Vanegas travelled with Quark Expeditions on a journey called “Crossing the Circle, Southern Expedition.” The photos are breathtaking and unlike anything else on Earth.

Sculptures of Zimbabwe
From Terminal T to Terminal A is an amazing display of Zimbabwe sculptures.
image
image
The exhibit has 20 sculptures over a distance of about 1000 feet along with pictures and artist descriptions and bios.

Crow...from MST3K?

The Legacy of a Dream
At the top of the big escalators in Terminal E, there is a small display about Martin Luther King, Jr.
image
The display details King’s life and his influence in Atlanta. The display also contains a pair of King’s glasses (which he didn’t need but wore because he thought they made him look “distinguished”), the robe he wore as pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church, and the suit worn by King when he met with President Johnson in 1966.

Headed out of CLT!

On the way to Florida for a conference. The TSA at CLT are big fans of us and always excited to see us at the airport.

View from Our Room at Pinnacle Inn at Beach Mountain

We have an amazing view of the ski slopes and of the surrounding mountains.

At 5,506 feet, the town of Beech Mountain, NC, is the highest city east of the Rockies, so we are either in cloud cover or above it at times.
