The views! Our skyline is beautiful, especially from the Jackson Street bridge. We’re also surrounded by hiking trails that have great views: Arabia Mountain, Stone Mountain, and East Palisades are some of my favorites that are nearby.

Go-to drink spot …

I love going to speakeasies because they always have the best cocktails. Atlanta has quite a few good ones: The Blind Pig Parlour and Supply & Demand are two of my favorites.

Our music scene is incredible, and we have a good mix of genres so buy a ticket to see a show! Definitely check out Smith’s Olde Bar (American pub-style, with pool tables), Terminal West (foundry-turned-killer event venue), and The Fox Theatre (local gem and former movie palace with incredible interior design).  

You can’t leave ATL without …

Taking a stroll on the Atlanta BeltLine. It’s a nice way to explore the city by foot, and you’ll come across a bunch of hidden gems along the way, Ponce City Market, New Realm Brewing, Krog Street Market, and more depending on where you are and where you go.

Plan for traffic, keep an eye out for celebs (movies and tv shows are filmed here all of the time, and a lot of music artists live here), pack a variety of outfits (ATL weather is fickle). That’s three, but oh well — you got two bonuses!
