The NAA Education Conference is almost here and we look forward to seeing multifamily pros in Atlanta for the event. You may not know, but Atlanta is home to a number of multifamily's top companies, including InfoTycoon, the leading platform for inspection and asset management solutions. Since our team knows Atlanta well, we have a few favorite places we recommend you visit during the conference. If you have some free time during NAA, make sure to check out the InfoTycoon team's favorite spots in our hometown.
Attracting millions of visitors each year, the Georgia Aquarium is the largest aquarium in the Western Hemisphere. It is home to thousands of animals and over 10 million gallons of water. If you'll be attending NAA's Thursday night party Sip, Splash, and Summer Bash, you'll be able to see the famous aquarium up close. This is a can't-miss destination and footsteps away from the Georgia World Congress Center.

A former movie palace, The Fox Theatre is home to many of Atlanta's best concerts and performances. Even if you cannot catch a show, the guided tours allow you to see The Fox up close, including its large and famous pipe organ dubbed 'Mighty Mo'. In addition to its shows, the theater is known for its mosque-style architecture, including its domes, minarets, and the starry ceiling of the performance hall.

4. CNN Center
Atlanta is home to the CNN Center, the world headquarters of CNN, located right nearby the Georgia World Congress Center. While you're there, make sure to visit and take their studio tour where you'll get a behind-the-scenes look at how their news is produced. After the tour, you can grab a bite to eat in the scenic food court on the ground floor of the building. Don't miss the opportunity to see this Atlanta staple right near where NAA will be taking place.

Krog Street Market is a new mixed-use development located not too far from the GWCC. A trendy spot for tourists and locals, KSM is a warehouse space that offers one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants to visitors. NAA attendees should visit KSM to check out local Southern cuisine, shop Atlanta-specific retailers, and hang out in this space located in the Inman Park area. If KSM seems up your alley, also make sure to visit Ponce City Market, a bigger mixed-use development that runs right along Atlanta's Beltline trail in the Midtown area.
