    Atlanta residents and out-of-towners should check out the Inside CNN Studio Tour for a behind-the-scenes glimpse of TV magic. $15 for adults; $14 for seniors and students; $12 for kids.

    The VIP tour is an amazing value! Unbelievable access. Photos allowed everywhere! Several opportunities for a photo-op as an anchor, weatherman, etc... See control room, newsroom and studios!

    Take the Morning Express VIP Tour. It's $49 but well worth it. You get to see CNN/HLN newsrooms, you get to actually go in the HLN control room, and you get a nice VIP lanyard and a nice thermal mug

    Go here for lunch and people watching. Don't think the tour is worth it. Go to the CNN store for souvenirs and take picture by the large CNN logo.
  • News 95-5 and AM 750 WSB
    It opened in 1976, housing a hotel, fine shops, restaurants, and two 14-story office buildings. It also offered an indoor amusement park and an ice-skating rink.

    The CNN tour was the biggest waste of time and money, didn't see or learn anything of interest. Best part was the elevator ride at the beginning.

    The gifts are $. The tour was nice - we get to see how the weather report is done. Tour guide was funny but sometimes felt like it was scripted. Well, of coz it would be - it's a news tour.

    Lots to do here. Coming when there's big news and events going on in town, and you'll certainly see a newscast / spot in and around the food court!

    Literally a mall in the ATL. Great place to get anything you need while you're downtown for tourists and locals!

    Stop here only of you have a City Pass. The tour is nothing but "Here's a studio, here's another, here's a room of employees, and another, now an out of place 'movie,' now exit through the gift shop."
