Here Are 10 Historic Olympic Venues In Georgia You Can Still Visit Today

With the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio coming to a close this weekend, we thought we would take a trip down memory lane, back to when the Summer Olympics were held in Atlanta in 1996. What’s really amazing though, is that fact that a lot of the Olympic venues used for the 1996 Olympics, are still open to the public 20 years later. Many of these sporting venues were built from scratch, purposely for the Summer Olympics. The hefty price tag for this new construction—$1.7 billion.

Now here we are, two decades later. While some buildings fell to ruin, others are still thriving. Take a look at 10 of the historic spots in Georgia you can still visit today.

The 1996 Olympics were such a memorable and uniting time for the city of Atlanta as well as the state of Georgia. Thanks to YouTuber, Trivyon Bland, you can relive the moment when Muhammad Ali lights the Olympic flame.
