VroomVroomVroom is the expert in booking rental cars in Atlanta and all across the great state of Georgia! People book with us every day because we provide benefits you just can't get elsewhere! Some of these advantages are:
The peak season in Atlanta is between May and August when most concerts and fun activities are held including the Atlanta Jazz Festival and Sweet Auburn Springfest. If the weather is too hot for you, the best time to visit the city is during spring and fall. For those who have a tight budget, winter is the perfect time to book a hotel and car rental but make sure to prepare yourself for possible ice storms.
Drive your rental to the north of the city and in less than an hour, you'll reach Lake Lanier Islands in Buford. It is not only a fabulous boating location with boat ramps and a marina, but it also offers a world-class water park for kids. You can check out Lake Allatoona in Cartersville, a local favorite for family boating, fishing, skiing, tubing, and relaxing afternoons. When you drive to Lake Allatoona, you're headed to campsites, a marina, parks, beaches, and miles of pristine hiking. Atlanta sits in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, and it's only a short drive to have fun in Georgia outdoors!

Atlanta is a city full of life and personality. From unique restaurants and coffee shops to a night life that never seems to end, there are too many things to do and see. You are guaranteed enough fun to keep you busy for the length of your stay. Here are some of the attractions that VroomVroomVroom recommends.
Atlanta History Center
You'll find a 32-acre set, 1840s farm, a 1920s house and exhibitions featuring everything from Afro-American history and the Civil War to southern folk art in Atlanta History Center. There is even a wing featuring the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games.
For culture vultures (and those who just enjoy good music), each season the Atlanta Opera puts on four major productions. There are lectures and matinees. The opera house features everything from Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro to Floyd's Cold Sassy Tree. In September 2007, the company moved to its new home at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center.
Atlanta Motor Speedway
Address: 1500 Tara Pl, Hampton, GA 30228
For those who prefer the sound of engines to violins, there is the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton with big truck events, driving lessons and Thunder Legends Racing. Just writing about it makes me smell engine oil.
Address: 1 CNN Center, Atlanta, GA 30303
Fancy seeing yourself as a desk jockey? You can tour CNN's Atlanta studios. The tour lasts about 55 minutes and takes you right into the heart of the news. There are special tours aimed at elementary school pupils as well so there is something for everyone.
10 Degrees South
If you want to try something new, go to 10 Degrees South on Roswell road for South African fusion food. If you prefer something else, there are around 8,000 restaurants in the metropolitan Atlanta area so there is plenty of choice to fit any taste and budget.
