In life, we can always learn something new. Which is why I loved field trips growing up. It was a chance to have fun and be considered educational and most of the time we didn’t even realize we were learning. Here in Georgia, there are many places for educators and homeschoolers alike to visit. Today we are sharing about World of Coca-Cola
- Enjoy an ice-cold Coca-Cola when you arrive
- Get an inside look at the bottling process
- Learn more about the intrigue surrounding our most closely guarded secret by visiting the Vault of the Secret Formula
- Explore more than 1,200 never-before-displayed artifacts
- Take a trip around the world through a breathtaking 4-D movie experience
- Share a hug with our 7-foot-tall Coca-Cola Polar Bear!
- Tempt your taste buds with more than 100 beverages from around the world
We visited this weekend as part of Educators Day and you can see all the fun the kids and I had:
