  • 1. Atlanta Botanical Garden
    Atlanta Botanical Garden, Atlanta, Georgia

    Beautiful Gardens inside of Piedmont Park, Atlanta. Typically teams up with Artists to display art, and sculptures in the garden. Great place for a nice walk, or to take Children (they have their own garden).

  • 2. Fox Theatre
    Fox Theatre, Atlanta, Georgia

    Go. It doesn't matter what is playing, this is a goregous theatre. The ceiling looks like you are outdoors (clouds actually drift by), and the walls look like a Moorish City. Sit upstairs or downstairs, out from under the loge, to get the maximum effect of this beautiful theatre. The bathrooms are also gems- incredibly beautiful.
    In the summertime, they play old classic movies, and a grand organ comes out of the stage pre-show for a sing along.

  • 3. Mary Mac's Tea Room
    Mary Mac's Tea Room, Atlanta, Georgia

    Southern food at its best. Near the fox theatre, you won't be dissapointed.

  • 4. OK Cafe
    OK Cafe, Atlanta, Georgia

    Order the milkshakes. This 50's retro diner is incredibly fun, and you are guaranteed great southern food. Huge selection, eclectic art.

  • 5. Georgia Aquarium
    Georgia Aquarium, Atlanta, Georgia

    This is an incredible experience. I would recommend considering a weekday if possible. Weekends are crowded. You should consider purchasing tickets before you come, since they limit the amount of tickets sold each day.

  • 6. Fernbank Museum of Natural History
    Fernbank Museum of Natural History, Atlanta, Georgia

    Dinosaurs! IMAX! Great outdoor park just outside.

  • 7. Atlantic Station

    This has great outdoor shopping, with all the major department stores. It also has great places for lunch, and a movie theatre.

  • 8. Virginia Higlands

    Shopping, eating, theatre, spas, nightlife- safe and fun. We like Pura Vida (tapas), Surin (Thai), Key Lime Pie (spa).

  • 9. Pura Vida
    Pura Vida, Atlanta, Georgia

    Yum! Costa Rican Tapas. Intimate atmosphere, excellent food at good prices.

  • 10. Six Feet Under
    Six Feet Under, Atlanta, Georgia

    This is a play on words. Excellent seafood, and directly across from our cemetary, Oakland.

  • 11. Oakland Cemetary

    Beautiful Old cemetary in the heart of Atlanta. Come see where Bobby Jones and Margaret Mitchell are buried. The architecture is stunning, and the guided tours, informative and interesting. Great walk!
    Tour tickets can be presented at Six Feet Under, a great seafood restaurant across the street for a discount.
