America’s Best Vacations for Sports Fans

From boxing and baseball to lingerie football leagues, the best vacation itineraries for sports lovers whatever their team.

Atlanta: Olympic Glory

12 of 16

A trip to Atlanta combines international history with our national pastime. Relive the summer of 1996 with the Atlanta History Center’s Centennial Olympic Games Collection and a stroll (or water fountain splash) in peaceful Centennial Olympic Park downtown. The former stadium—one of the world’s coolest Olympic stadiums—is now Turner Field and home to the Braves, where an on-site museum traces the team’s history through artifacts and photographs from its start in Boston in 1871 through the present. Just 90 minutes away in Royston, avowed baseball fans can delight in the Ty Cobb Museum, one of the first inductees to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Time Out: Sip some 100 flavors of soda from around the globe at World of Coca-Cola, and hang with whale sharks (Olympians of the ocean, at least in terms of size) at the Georgia Aquarium.
