The city of Atlanta has plenty to offer.
There are many beautiful views which are amazing and simply breathtaking; the luminescent skyline to the natural and historic landmark of Stone Mountain (now there is Snow Mountain with snow for play). The city is concrete like most major cities; developed and grand, yet, even within it and within 5-10 miles in any direction you will find nature persists. The scattered parks, including Piedmont Park, are always available for families and fun, and a romantic stroll. The Georgia Aquarium, the largest aquarium in the country, sits next the World of Coca Cola. The horse carriages beckon when the walk to the parking lot seems too far to trek after a day in Centennial Olympic Park, the Children’s Museum or the Center for the Puppetry Arts. As the sun sets, the night life begins, and at times, impatience rules and there is blatant disregard for the sun still in the Georgia sky. Happy hour seems to never end (and on St. Patrick’s Day it begins at 8am). Talented chefs make the restaurants a definite destination (Horseradish Grill, Pricci, Bones, Chops/Lobster Bar, Ray’s on the River, Tomo Japanese restaurant, 4th & Swift, Rumi’s Kitchen Persian restaurant, Sushi House Buckhead (Super Shrimp is delicious!) and The Atlanta Fish Market are super favorites). We will not forget to mention the theatres (such as the Alliance Theatre, Fox Theatre and 14th Street Playhouse), sport events and annual local events such as the Decatur Book Festival, Peachtree Road Race (nope, not easy but great), the Auburn Street Festival, the Dogwood Festival and numerous other events. We will admit Atlanta is not New York City but we realized early on we were not missing many things. This city can hold its own against any major city as a great place to live, work and play. Come see for yourself.
