What is MARTA?

June 29, 2021 |

In a sense, she’s the friend who comes to pick you up to take you out for a day or evening of fun. She’s always reliable, on time, and is easy to come by. (Shoot, she lives right behind Quill!)

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, or MARTA, is Atlanta Georgia’s rail and bus system. If you’re looking for transportation solutions, they’ve got you covered. With a MARTA station directly behind Quill, you’ll be able to get anywhere you need conveniently.

Don’t believe us? We’ve planned out a few trips for you:

So many things to do, so many sights to see.

Being so close to the Edgewood/Candler Park MARTA Station has its perks. If you’re looking for things to do, take a ride over to some of these top Georgia attractions. Hop on either the green line or the blue line, and allow yourself to be taken away for a day of play.

“Botany plants lately?”

Whenever you feel like stepping into a fantasy land, we recommend visiting the Atlanta Botanical Garden, located near Piedmont Park in midtown Atlanta. Not only do their gorgeous plants inspire gardeners everywhere, the garden hosts specialized events each week! From cocktails in the gardens to live musical performances, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.

There’s some-fin special about this place.

Did you know you are minutes away from one of the largest aquariums in the world? Georgia Aquarium is home to some of the fiercest creatures of the deep, and the only home to shark whales and manta rays in North America! If you’re not too mesmerized by the sheer size of this place, then make sure to participate in some performances starring sea lions or dolphins, or sit back and watch a 4D experience in the theater.

Suds throughout history.

Right next to the Georgia Aquarium is the famous World of Coca-Cola. Take a trip down memory lane when you see artifacts from yesterday and today. Explore the rich heritage of the Coca-Cola brand. Experience scent discovery. And of course, choose from 100 beverages from around the world to taste!
