Out and About in the City Atlanta








I love that I have lived in this city for 12 years now and still find new things to discover.  The city is constantly evolving.  Outside of the amazing weather, I have loved that there is so much to see and do!  We are never bored and often have too many things we want to put on our calander.  The other morning I was out scouting spots for a photoshoot and found these little gems.  People are always asking me where to stay in Atlanta and my first pick would be the Indigo Hotel located in the heart of Atlanta in a section called Midtown.  It is a Boutique Hotel that is close enough to the city center, Marta transportation system, the Fox Theater and many great restaurants.  Where to Eat?  I love Baraonda as it offers some of the best Italian food; however, Nan, The Watershed, Flying Biscut, Vortex, and The Krog Street Market which offers a variety of great restaurants are all other great places to eat. Now what to do?  Most people visit the World of Coco Cola or the largest aquarium in the United States, but I say don't forget to visit the Jimmy Carter Museum, a walk up Stone Mountain, a tour of CNN, or just simply a walk through Piedmont Park.  The one thing most of my guest are amazed at is how green our city is and to be honest the feeling isn't lost on me either.  The other day, my friend Simona and I went to Restoration Hardware in Buckhead and from the top floor you get a fantastic view of the city.  The city is enveloped in a sea of green.  It is beautiful!  Well, I hope you have enjoyed my finds.  I love Atlanta and hope if you ever visit that you will love this adopted city of mine.

I have been to Atlanta a couple of times but it was about 10 years ago....I remember visiting the Botanic Gardens, canoeing on the river, eating some great food, being moved by all the Martin Luther King history, visiting De Kalb Farmer's market and enjoying Piedmont and Grant Park....now i have another friend living in Atlanta so perhaps I will visit again next year!

I've only "seen" Atlanta through the windows of an airport and from the air. This makes me want to get another closer view!
