    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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."

    Take the CNN Tour in the morning M-F to ensure that you will actually see a show being filmed live.

    Find Chick-fil-A's speaker Soledad O'Brien here anchoring the show Starting Point. The Harvard grad has paved the way for covering natural disasters, and has an Emmy to show for it.

    There's a secret cafeteria for CNN employees — super helpful on days the Center Atrium is packed with tourists.

    Always stop here before a gate at Phillips. The beer and food are half as much as inside the arena.

    Whether you're on the official CNN tour or just happen to gain special access, come by the National Desk and wave hello to the best Newsgathering operation in the business.

    I've been coming here since I was a kid, if you want Fox News, go run into Marietta St. You'll make Fox News then. Taco Mac is Great!

    Reserve your ticket time in advance if possible, combination vouchers give admittance but still have to be exchanged for a certain time.

    Do the tour on a weekday. Place is empty on weekends so there isn't much on air stuff to see.

    Take the tour, if you like Robin Mead, check out her Morning Express tour where you can meet Robin. The food court is nice, but Taco Mac and Dantanas are adjacent as well.

    Watch CNN on a big-screen TV in the atrium with a bunch of other homeless people while sipping coffee. The homeless people watching isn't bad either.

    The CNN Center was previously occupied by the indoor amusement park called 'The World of Sid and Marty Krofft. That'd would be a fun tourist attraction, aye?
