The shul is called Bnai Brith Jacob (BBJ). It's also a really old congregation, dating back to 1861. They have 1 minyan for shachris, and a shkia mincha/maariv every day. Not sure what the neighborhood is called, but it's south of the areas of interest. Was a non-issue getting there for minyan from the Westin, despite being a fair distance away, as it's nearly all highway driving with little to no traffic. I'd say it was 15 minutes each way - and would probably be similar from any of the hotels in the historic district. There happen to also be lots of cheaper hotels right near the shul - both lower end chain hotels that can be had with points, and super cheap inn/motel types. It's close enough to not be an issue getting to the attractions and can save you some money.

The only food option is BBJ Food Service. Basically the caterer for the area, but they do individual meal orders. You can order online, and pick it up from the shul's kitchen/dining hall. I just arranged to pick it up after mincha/maariv - the guy davens there anyway. They do have online ordering, but it's probably better to call them, confirm when you can pick it up, etc.

We really enjoyed the food. I had the beef brisket with candied yams and green beans. $14, very tasty and certainly pretty fillign for that price. Pretty sure my wife had stuffed cabbage - no recollection on the sides. Whatever it was, it was good and not too expensive. We ended up getting late lunch there the next day too, but I don't really remember what we had.

On the plane ride back, we sat next to a girl from the neighborhood, and she told us that there's also a Krispy Kreme and a Coldstone.

As far as other activities, we did Ogelthorpe Tours trolley. It's open sided (ie no real window, just posts holding up the roof, so you can see the sites better) They drive around, with a guide telling you the history and significance of the city and various landmarks within it. We had a Groupon or something similar - don't remember the exact cost, but it was very reasonable. We chose to get off at City Market at the end of the tour, and browsed the shops there. If we would've had a little more time, we'd have hung out a bit on River St as well, but that time ended up going towards a longer break for lunch, some outlet shopping near the airport, and just a less rushed ending to the trip.

Thank you.  Informative without going on too long on tangents that don't interest me.  ;D
