40. Take MARTA
It’s really not even a choice anymore. Our roads are failing faster than you can spell “infastructure,” and the only way to reclaim sanity is to catch the train -- better yet, catch a parking space at the train station so you can actually take the damn train. Look, ATL is complicated. Let’s travel to the future together, starting with your participation in our yet-to-be-perfected railway system. With more of us riding, we will get more stations. Ahem, Cobb County...
And then write your local rep and ask that they carve in an Outkast illustration instead. Anyways, don't pretend you just felt like hiking up The Rock because you love nature. No, you had a ridiculously crazy brunch yesterday and need to atone. You made it to the top, but what now? Take a look at our reminder of a not-so-great history in the form of a giant carving. And then either throw a blanket down and chill... or just head home and be glad you never had to take part in the Civil War. Either way, you can say you've been to the largest high relief sculpture in the world!
42. Visit Station Soccer
It’s the first public soccer field on Earth built into a public transportation station. That makes it very original, and very ATL. Best of all, it's at Five Points MARTA Station, which puts you in the middle of Downtown and the transfer point to the East/West lines, so once you’re finished you can ride the train in any direction your heart desires to a new adventure, so long as that adventure is not located in Cobb County. Negativity aside, it’s the brainchild of a group called Soccer in the Streets, which is making a valiant push to include low-income neighborhoods in its expansion plans, because it shouldn’t matter how much money you have if you love the game, right?
