Greetings from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Int’l Airport (ATL)

Worried about getting stuck at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport this holiday season? An ATL elf sent along a long list of helpful “insider tips.” Some highlights:

You can get exercise and see some great artwork if you stroll along the transportation mall. The carpeted, mile and a half long corridor has a stunning collection of sculpture from Zimbabwe.

If you’re looking fro some peace and quiet, the airport’s two interfaith chapels (on Concourse E and in the terminal Atrium) are open 24-hours-a-day.

And if you’re traveling with a pet, the airport has a pet rest area with pick-up bags, a trash can, and trees (for sniffing) just outside of terminal north at the LN2 door. (Use the AA baggage area escalator on the north side of the Terminal. At the bottom of the escalator turn left toward the LN2 door. Once outside turn right and the dog walk area is just a few steps down the sidewalk.)
