Short work weeks are amazing.
The Fourth of July holiday meant many people only had to work four days this week. Now, it's time to unwind again.
This weekend is the perfect time to explore a new exhibit at one of Atlanta's popular museums. If that's not your idea of fun, you can also attend a low country boil.
Here are our top picks for things to do in Atlanta this weekend:
If you’re sitting at your desk watching the clock for the end of your work week, there is one thing you can do to hold you over. Head to Midtown’s Woodruff Arts Center where food trucks will gather every Friday from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Callaway Plaza on the corner of Peachtree & 15th. Three to six food trucks will gather in this area each week until October.
Up to eight food trucks will also gather at the Broad Street Plaza of Five Points MARTA station from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Fridays. Special performances may also occur at this location each week.
Head back to work satisfied and ready to concur the rest of the work day after visiting one of these locations!
“On You: Wearing Technology”
Most of us wear some form of technology on a daily basis. The Museum of Design Atlanta is looking into how these devices have become more popular and practical lately with their exhibit “On You: Wearing Technology.” Sponsored by Georgia Tech Wearable Computing Center, the exhibit will look at the people who utilize this technology as well as their creators.
The exhibit opened June 26 and will be open through October 2.
General admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children, ages 6-17.
Gatheround: Stories of Atlanta
Visit the Atlanta Histroy Center this weekend to view their newest exhibit.
“Gatheround: Stories of Atlanta” is an exhibit that features live theater performances and interactive activities in an effort to teach participants about the history of the city.
The exhibit is a permanent display, so if you can’t go to the museum this weekend, don’t worry. You’ll still be able to see the exhibit.
Learn more about the characters you will encounter at the exhibit at Atlantahistorycenter.com.
