    With everybody freaking out over the high price of gas (try driving in Europe, friends), tourism authorities, hotels, and other travel-related business are doling out the deals to keep the tourists coming, including gas "giveaways." For example, groups of 40 or more who book tickets for the Tut exhibit at Atlanta's Carlos Museum of Emory University will get a $100 gas card. Too-good-to-be-true deals in Atlanta seem relatively sparse, however. Not to worry, though, as standard offerings like the all-inclusive CityPass and Atlanta-wide MVP package offer some decent savings regardless of how much it costs to fill your tank.

    Depending on your budget, there is quite a selection of hotels to choose from. Look through downtown hotels here (http://bit.ly/gPGX52). As for safety, the more expensive hotels might have better security than budget hotels, though it's not guaranteed. Travel with a group or call ahead to potential hotels to see if they have security cameras or 24-hour front desk services, and request a room higher than the first floor to reduce the risk of break-ins.

    You might try the Westin Peachtree Plaza, which is located conveniently downtown and has family-friendly amenities including indoor/outdoor pools and services through the Westin KidsClub program. A few miles north of Atlanta (admittedly, a few miles can = many miles in Atlanta gridlock!), the Buckhead area offers loads of hotels, restaurants, and shopping in the big Lenox Square mall. Might make a good base, too, plus you've got MARTA access to downtown and Five Points area from Buckhead.

    The average weather for Atlanta in October is in the upper 60's to mid 70's range. The weather is pretty warm and dry, so I would pack jeans and t-shirts. I would definitely bring a few jackets too just in case.
