54th Annual Meeting

September 10-14, 2014
Atlanta Marriott Marquis
Atlanta, Georgia

Review the following websites for places of interest that you may want to visit during your trip to Atlanta for the 2014 Annual Meeting. Check out the restaurant listings towards the bottom of the page.

Plan to use MARTA, the rapid transit system in Atlanta to move around from neighborhood to neighborhood. Purchase your Breeze card at the MARTA terminals and purchase your tickets as you decide where to go. It is an economical way to travel from the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to the Marriott Marquis Hotel (although it does drop you off about one block from the hotel).
