Coca-ColaA Coke and a Smile was playing constantly through my mind while exploring the World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta, Georgia. It was a wonderful place to escape on a hot June day.

We had a great time, and their kids really seemed to enjoy themselves too. Let me tell you a little bit about our visit and the World of Coca-Cola
