Group Transportation in Atlanta

Atlanta isn’t exactly known as the easiest place to travel around. With its infamous traffic and limited public transportation options, getting around with a group can be a challenge. Add on all the additional costs of rideshare apps and public transportation tickets, and you could end up spending more money and adding more stress to your trip than anticipated.

Instead of separating your group among separate vehicles or trying to stay organized on public transportation, rent a minibus or charter bus to ensure everyone stays together and on time. Falcon Charter Bus makes the bus reservation process easy, with bus rentals ranging from minibuses to full-sized motorcoaches. Your group can enjoy reclining seats to relax in, air-conditioning for relief from the Atlanta heat, and WiFi and TVs for endless entertainment on the ride.

David J. Sencer CDC Museum

Address: 1600 Clifton Rd, Atlanta, GA 30329

Phone: (404) 639-0830

Have you ever wanted to learn all about the history of public health? No? Well, you will once you discover that Atlanta—home of the notorious Center for Disease Control—has its very own CDC museum. The CDC museum was built in association with the Smithsonian Institution and displays how CDC scientists have solved cases of mystery diseases over the years. Discover permanent and temporary exhibits, like the story of the CDC and the Global Symphony. The museum is free to the public and offers free parking for easy access. Groups of 10 or more can schedule tours two weeks in advance, but keep in mind that there is a 30-person maximum.

 

 

Doll’s Head Trail

Address: 3445 Almand Rd SE, Atlanta, GA 30316

Do you love all things creepy and scary? Then Doll’s Head Trail may be your favorite place yet,  and the name gives it all away. Just a few miles from downtown and inside the Constitution Lakes Park sits a trail that covets outsider art. When this once-abandoned brickyard was transformed into a park, a local carpenter envisioned an art project that showcases doll heads and other junk and invited others to include their own displays—creating what it is today. The only catch? Any addition to the showcase must be something you found in the park itself because “litter makes the angels cry.”

 

Westview Cemetery

Address: 1680 Westview Dr SW, Atlanta, GA 30310

Visiting a cemetery may not seem like the most exciting activity, but Atlanta’s Westview Cemetery is the largest civilian cemetery in the Southeast and gives visitors a glimpse into the city’s past. With over 100,000 graves, you can find the final resting place for prominent Atlantans, like Robert Woodruff, Asa Candler, J.J. Haverty, Robert Shaw, and so many more. If that doesn’t intrigue you, your group can visit for the gorgeous views and the breathtaking West View Abbey Mausoleum, constructed in the 1940s, that houses Christian mosaics, paintings, and thousands of tombs. 

 

Junkman’s Daughter

Address: 464 Moreland Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30307

Phone: (404) 577-3188

On the search for unusual goods you can’t find anywhere else? You know, they say that one person’s trash is another person’s treasure, and the Junkman’s Daughter takes that saying to heart. Also known as “Atlanta’s Alternative Super Store,” this store sells an eclectic collection of goods, from clothing to art to random collectibles. The store lives at a once-abandoned grocery store and showcases vibrant murals, like an embedded crashed UFO above the entrance. Once you’re done discovering all the goods, you can set off to explore the rest of the Little Five Points neighborhood where the store is located. See other unique restaurants, vintage shops, galleries, and music venues—all while your transportation is covered.
