Staycation in Atlanta? 5 other ideas for Labor Day weekend

Despite the marketing buzz for staycations, the idea of getting blissfully lost in your own city seems unlikely, especially when the yard's still overgrown and a day at the office is still just a phone call away. Fortunately, CL's Fall Guide '09 hit newsstands this morning! And Labor Day weekend is only days away, which means:

1. Dragon*Con. Please understand that this is some of the best people watching on earth. Even if you have zero interest in comic books, games or the special Star Trek shenanigans this year, there's still plenty to see. I can't think of a more effective way of "feeling transported" than wading through a crowd of 35,000+ people dressed like walking Tetris blocks or sea captains with tentacles instead of beards.

2. Free admission to the High Museum! On Saturday, the High will treat residents of Fulton County to a free day at the museum. All it takes is a proof of residence, or a student ID from a school, college or university in Fulton County. What's more, Bank of America customers also get free admission on the first full weekend of the month. Just show your BoA credit, check, or ATM card for passes on Saturday or Sunday.
