Concierge.com's insider take:
Back in 1991, CNN put Atlanta on the map with its real-time Gulf War coverage and its then-revolutionary concept of a 24-hour cable news service. While some programming has shifted to New York City, the global headquarters for the Turner Broadcasting System remains one of this city's most visible institutions. Guided tours provide a behind-the-scenes look at the operation, including a model control center and a blue-screen special-effects studio. Advance reservations are recommended. The walking tour includes several flights of stairs; call ahead to inquire about accessibility for persons with disabilities.
