Piedmont Park is a scene all on its own, it’s Atlanta’s Central Park. The botanical gardens are a beautiful surprise right smack in the middle of the park. Also stop in for a smoothie or breakfast burrito at Sean’s in the park- a full restaurant IN Piedmont park.

Take yourself on a tour of Martin Luther King Jr’s childhood home, his church, the MLK Center and more! Also some great mom and pop restaurants nearby. Famous Slutty Vegan is nearby too... but be prepared to wait in a loooooong line.

Food scene
Long Island Coffee- yes- that’s right. Must try! The best house made Bloody Mary that doesn’t taste like V8 with a splash of vodka or a bunch of stuff decorating your glass. Brisket breakfast tacos, homemade biscuits, crazy good french toast- just a great brunch whether you sit at the bar or out in the patio. Be prepared to wait at peak brunch times... my advice? Go midweek and really enjoy this menu

A little bit of everything! Food, shopping, green space. You can walk, run, rollerblade or scooter on the Beltline (a long stretch of paved road that connects many points of interest in Atl) and stop along the way wherever you’d like. Also there’s a great rooftop at Ponce - you can play games, mini golf or just hang and people watch

Conseils sur la ville

Déplacements
Public Transit
There is a transit system here, MARTA. It’s relatively good- not NY or Chicago but helpful. Just be mindful to know where you’re going, check the train lines before going to platform, be safe always, tuck purses inside your jacket, don’t travel alone at night etc. BE SMART.
Manières de faire des économises
If you’re planning to sightsee
Consider a city pass if you are here for a week or so and want to see multiple museums and points of interest. Some passes will even include parking. Also check to see which museums have free days and plan accordingly. Pack snacks and water to avoid costly food purchases at inflated prices.
Que faut-il apporter?
Weather is UNPREDICTABLE
Just a reminder that in the summer it can get VERY hot here! But it can also be cool in the same morning and rain midday. Be prepared for it all and if you have allergies, take a Claritin or some local bee pollen NOW!
