|Welcome to Atlanta! Today we are going to help you to spend the best days in Atlanta. From entertainment, restaurants, shopping and celebrating, we are going to help to find the perfect places to go and tell you why you should go.
Atlanta is one of the most popular destinations in the Southeast to live and to visit. This big city in Georgia State has a rich history and a world-class sophistication, balancing southern traditions with the simple modernism lines.
It has the world’s busiest airport and boasts three skylines: Downtown, Midtown and Buckhead. But is not all high rises, each neighborhoods offer different atmospheres, just take a look.
Downtown is the most central and commercial area, economically and politically, in Georgia.
Here you can visit the famous Aquarium and be amazed by the different species or step into the home of happiness in the World of Coca-Cola with loads of curiosities and end tasting different varieties of this drink from around the world.
Plus, we recommend to spend a few hours taking a walk in the Centennial Olympic Park and remember the glorious days of the Olympic Games of 1996, hosted by Atlanta.
But, unlike most of the cities, this is not the best place to live or to hang around at night – it could be dangerous.
The Midtown area is a major business and residential district with tall skyscrapers and a popular nightlife area. We recommend to pass by Two Urban Licks restaurant to hands up for their appetizers. And, if you’re a feeling more adventurous, then go the Church bar (yes, you read it right). Church is officially called Sister Louisa’s Church of the Living Room and Ping Pong Emporium and is such a unique place to hear some classics and indie music along with the dozens of fun pictures and odd objects.
If you are an art lover, in the Westside of Midtown you’ll find Atlanta’s Art and Design District or as some call it, Westside Atlanta. Here’s the popular hub for interior designers, architects, graphic designers, event designers and producers of film, television and music. Just go there and be amazed by the southern creativity. High Museum of Art is waiting for you too, it features several permanent collections as well as high-profile traveling exhibits.
Finally, the ultra chic Atlanta neighborhood, Buckhead, is the popular business district where you can experience fine dining, luxury shopping and a vibrant nightlife.
Go to the most famous boutiques from Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza malls, have dinner at Aria Restaurant and end in the Havana Club.
This district is surrounded by neighboring Brookwood Hills, as well as Lindbergh Center, and the Governor’s Mansion.
Oh, in case you forget Georgia is the Peach State, Atlanta will remind you that since most of the streets are named Peachtree Street. So plan to explore the sights on or just off Peachtree Street and in surrounding Atlanta neighborhoods to discover what you love about this charming city.
We hope we help you to celebrate your way through one of the greatest cities in the south, welcome to Atlanta.
