Martin Luther King, Jr.(MLK) Memorial This National Historic Site gives student travelers a comprehensive look at MLK's origins. Tours may include a visit to the birth home of Martin Luther King, Jr., a tour of Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Dr. King, his father and grandfather preached, a trip to the visitor center, and a tour of The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change. Groups may opt to visit the "I Have a Dream" World Peace Rose Garden if there is time.

CNN Studios Tour Ted Turner Started CNN, an all-news 24-hour per day network. Student tours begin inside the 50-foot globe where they can search 25 years of CNN footage using kiosks to access the information. On tour, students see the control room, black box studio where live footage is shot, and the CNN Overlook that gives a panoramic view of the newsroom at its busiest. Groups learn about other networks CNN owns, and listen to stories from news anchors about the challenges and excitement of their jobs.

Fernbank Museum of Natural History with Imax Movie Students can learn about the geological history of Georgia, beginning with the piedmont and ending on the coastal barrier islands. A visit to the museum includes a look at Conveyed in Clay, an exhibit of 5,000 year old Native American pottery found on St. Catherines Island in Georgia -- the oldest pottery found in North America. Giants of the Mesozoic features a close up view of pre-historic life in Patagonia, Argentina, where the largest dinosaur skeletons in the world were found. If there is time, groups may take in a movie at the Imax while visiting the Fernbank Museum.

The Atlanta tour, coupled with a visit to Chattanooga, can offer student travel groups a diverse learning experience. The Chattanooga portion of the trip includes a look at geological features and the opportunity to explore outdoor sites. A few days in nearby Atlanta gives student groups insight into the cultural, scientific, and technological savvy of a large city. Students also learn about Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement he led.
