New live stream lets you view Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park

EarthCam’s view of the downtown Atlanta skyline and park also will let you watch fireworks displays and other events without leaving your air-conditioned home

You’ve always wanted to get up early, pack a breakfast and watch the sunrise over Atlanta and Centennial Olympic Park. But you’ve never really wanted to get out of bed. 

If this sounds like you, EarthCam’s new live feed is a page you’ll want to bookmark.

Founded in 1996, New Jersey-based EarthCam “exists to encourage exploration, foster discovery and connect people through innovative live camera technology.”

The company teamed up with the Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame to place a camera on the HOF building on Marietta Street, next to the Georgia World Congress Center. The 4k streaming view includes the downtown skyline and Centennial Olympic Park, including concerts and special events.

If you scroll down the page from the live stream, EarthCam has posted photos from the past four days, including night shots with the SkyView Ferris wheel.

And for those who would love to see other cities but can’t afford a trip right now, EarthCam has live feeds of ChicagoBaltimore and other cities.

If you tire of the downtown Atlanta view, check out the panda cam at Zoo Atlanta. Ya Lun and Xi Lun, the zoo’s giant panda twins, turned 2 on Sept. 3, 2018.

Or you can destress watching the Ocean Voyager live feed from the Georgia Aquarium, which is Atlanta’s favorite family attraction and one of the coolest aquariums in the world.
