Sightseeing
Good for walking and people-watching. Drink a beer at Park Tavern, have a burrito at Willy's. It is a bit far to walk to the park (half mile?), so we sometimes drive to the other side of Ansley Park, leave the car, and walk in the park.

This place draws crowds of locals and tourists, and there will be lines and costly tickets. That said, it is a mind-boggling aquarium. If not the biggest in the world, it is among the biggest.

Atlanta's world-famous and incredibly popular linear park (rail trail.) It effectively starts at the far side of Piedmont Park. Great dining destinations are Ponce City Market (food hall), Krog Street Market (food hall) everything in between.

Arguably Atlanta's nicest intown residential neighborhood. You are guaranteed to get lost in its bucolic street layout, but you can use the adjacent skyscrapers to orient yourself.

Biking
Atlanta is a great biking city! Ansley Park, Piedmont Park, and especially, the Beltline are all great for bikes and are lined with bars and restaurants. Bar-hopping by bike on the Beltline is my favorite evening activity.
They rent bikes. They may be closing the business, so contact them first.
