An informal expiration date exists in terms of travel in terms of how well we know certain places. Cities are living beings, they are dynamic and constantly in flux, meaning that many years of absence produce an urban destination that has reinvented itself in many ways. That’s the attitude I went with on my recent trip to Atlanta. Yes, it’s true that I’ve been there before, but so many years had passed that I thought there were a few that go a little beyond that shiny surface, from the most basic of tourist destinations. Although I only had a few days, it was the ideal time to remind myself why visiting Atlanta is so delightful.

National Center for Civil and Human Rights
To be honest though, spending some time at this remarkable institution was the absolute highlight of my time in Atlanta. Opened in 2014, the museum is dedicated to the achievements of both the civil rights movement in the United States and the wider worldwide human rights movement. The center hosts a number of exhibitions, both permanent and temporary, that tell not only the history of the civil rights movement in the United States, but how the period relates to more contemporary human rights struggles around the world. The museum currently has three permanent exhibitions, which the average visitor can experience in about 75 minutes.

The brothers decided that ‘fried chicken’ would be the specialty of the house and with that mandate, Robert created his ‘secret recipe’. Since first opening their doors, they have welcomed people from political leaders to civil rights heroes and countless others to the world.

Every place we visit is in a state of growth, a state of self-improvement, and Atlanta is no exception. Throughout my time in the city though I was impressed by its people, its experiences, its food and that intangible sense of contentment. I was comfortable in Atlanta, but more than that I was excited to learn more about the city, knowing that I would be welcomed into my adventures. Not every city is so open to discovery and for me that changed everything.
