Planning My Trip to the Atlanta International Auto Show

ATL Auto Show

After spending over 60 years working in the auto business, I finally retired. I worked various jobs throughout my career, but at each job there was one thing that was always the same and that was my love of cars. I always found a way to appreciate the cars I worked on; from classic cars and new cars to old cars and even junkers, it didn’t matter, there was something special about each of them. One thing I never did while in the industry is attend an auto show though. The idea of working on cars instead of going to look at them was a lot more appealing to me so it wasn’t ever a priority. Now that I’ve been retired for over a year, I’m itching to reconnect with the car industry though. Since I have a lot of extra time on my hands, I made the decision to go to auto shows in cities I have always wanted to visit and the first stop on my list will be the Atlanta International Auto Show in March!

The Atlanta International Auto Show runs from Wednesday, March 26th to Sunday, March 30th. My plan is to attend on Thursday because it is Senior Day and I figured I might as well go when all the slow walkers like me will be there. I’ve always been more of a truck guy, but I’m really looking forward to seeing the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible. It looks so sharp! The BMW i3 Electric Car is intriguing to me too. I have a very long list of must-see cars while at the auto show. Hopefully I can fit them all in.

Since this is supposed to be a vacation as well, I am flying into Atlanta earlier in the week. With the little research I have done so far, I can already tell it is going to be hard to decided what I am going to fill my days with! There are a lot of attractions and activities I think I would enjoy, but don’t want to cram too much in and be exhausted for the auto show. I created a list of potential things to do that jumped out at me so I will have to work on narrowing it down before my trip! If you’ve visited any of these places and have a strong opinion for or against visiting them, please let me know!
