A cup of cheer has officially been poured, as the World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta has launched its holiday celebration. Featuring larger-than-life decorations, special seasonal exhibits and beverages, one-of-a-kind handmade gifts and more, the attraction provides a uniquely Atlanta experience for out-of-town guests and long-time locals alike.
“Coca-Cola has been a special part of seasonal celebrations for generations, and similarly, the World of Coca-Cola has become a favorite destination for fans from around the world looking to experience the magic of the holidays,” said General Manager of Retail and Attractions for the World of Coca-Cola Russell Jacobs. “Each year, we look forward to welcoming guests to make memories and celebrate the holidays with us.”
When you visit the attraction this season, be sure to hit these five holiday highlights:
