Ring in the spring at one of Smyrna’s fabulous food trucks. Food Truck Tuesdays is organized each week by the City of Smyrna. Cobb Co.’s Office of Travel and Tourism invites you to “enjoy the offerings from a weekly gathering of quality mobile gourmet trucks and a bit of sweet mixed in and music, too.”
What a blast! Food trucks roll in every Tuesday at Taylor-Brawner Park, May 1st through September 25th.

When the weather gets warmer, it’s time for baseball! SunTrust Park Tours are offered year-round and begin at the Right Field Gate. Check out the Braves’ new digs and get an up-close-and-personal look at one of Atlanta’s newest sports venues.
Smorga M., in town all the way from California, gives SunTrust 5 stars on Yelp: “I really wanted to dislike this place and the fans but I am happy to say I couldn't dislike it at all! Fun ballpark, good food choices with great customer service throughout the entire place.”
