What to Do in Atlanta
Between local alumni, Central Office staff situated in Atlanta, and actives of Alpha Iota Delta (Georgia Tech), we curated two lists of things to do in Atlanta. The first one is a targeted list of activities led by Chi Psis on individual days. If you have questions about joining any of those groups, contact the "captain" listed on each, or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. On the second graphic, you'll see a general list of restaurants, attractions, and more in the Atlanta area. Anything bolded on that list is considered walking distance (usually less than 1.5 miles) from the Westin Hotel, where most attendees will be staying. These are intended to expedite attendees' adventures in Atlanta, as well as offer alternative options for the weekend for partners, kids, and other non-Chi Psi attendees at Convention. Enjoy!
If you are interested in joining alumni for the activities on Thursday, please register below. Anyone who is interested will gather by the Olympic rings in Centennial Park at 12:30 on Thursday. More information to come on who will be leading these tour groups. Below these tour group registrations are options for activities on Friday and Saturday for non-Chi Psi attendees and children to attend. Make sure to check out these tours to make the most of your time in Atlanta!
