Visitor Tips and News About The New World of Coca-Cola

World of Coca-Cola
Farewell to the Old World (of Coca Cola): The venerable shrine to a carbonated beverage, the World of Coca-Cola, closes forever on April 7, 2007. The new facility, next to the Georgia Aquarium at Centennial Olympic Park, opens on Memorial Day weekend.
