1. Cultural Tour: Know as "A Place of Paramount Peace." The BAPS Shiri Swaminarayan Mandir is a center for vibrant social, cultural, and spiritual events. Comprised of 3 types of stone (Turkish Limestone, Italian Marble, and Indian Pink Sandstone), more than 34,000 individual pieces were carved by hand in India, shipped to the USA, and assembled like a giant 3-D puzzle. Take a trip on a cultural exploration without a passport.
2. Art Tour: Unleash your inner artist at Hudgens Center for Art & Learning. This fun instructor-led class will provide you with the tools to guide you on your artistic journey. No experience is needed, just plain fun.
3. History Tour: Lawrenceville Ghost Tours. While Lawrenceville is the oldest city in Metro Atlanta, for many years it was a sleepy suburban Southern town. Whether it's tales based on local legends, handed down over the decades, or recent paranormal investigations, our professional storytellers will regale you with stories that will send a chill down your spine. Come find out, if you dare, why Lawrenceville has the most popular ghost tour in Metro Atlanta.
4. Sports Tour: Top Golf has made socializing a sport through a blend of technology and entertainment – and that’s just the game! Enjoy the climate-controlled hitting bays with HDTVs or mix and mingle at the bar and restaurant. Topgolf is buzzing with energy around every corner.
Head over to the South Terminal and board motorcoach at LS2 (Lower South Door 2). It is also accessible via the escalators in Delta Baggage Claim. Motorcoach is Coach USA.
A representative will be at the airport holding a Boomers in Groups welcome sign and can provide directions on where to locate the motorcoach. If you get lost or need help finding the motorcoach, contact Johnathan Kennedy at 504-952-6231.
