one of my best friends moved to atlanta, so that’s a good excuse to spend a weekend there. right?
my adventures in atlanta always start at the nearest waffle house. this isn’t just personal preference, it’s law.
after my obligatory waffle breakfast at 3 in the afternoon, we decided to take a look at atlanta from the top of the world. having a ferris wheel in your city is one of those perks that give your home a little oomph, ya know? skyview is one of the best ways to take atlanta all in. whether you’re taking on this adventure alone or with your friends, you’re in for a beauitful view. both day & night.
between the travel & my instant itis attack, i was ready for a nap (that kept me in the house for most of the night). but downtown atlanta reeled me in for a few good phtoto ops. it’s a good spot for locals & non-locals alike. something is always happening. and they have so much to offer to the public. you could spend all day right in this circle (trust me, i have). here’s a list of more things you can get in to downtown:
- have a picnic at centennial olympic park
- meet new fish at georgia aquarium
- taste test drinks at world of coca-cola
- experiment with sundaes at sub zero nitrogen ice cream
- take a tour of the college football hall of fame
- learn broadcasting at cnn center
- grab a drink & challenge a friend to some games at joystick gamebar or game-x
- catch a game at the home of the falcons, mercedes-benz stadium
day two, i wake up bright eyed & bushy haired ready to explore a part of atlanta i’ve never seen. after a morning movie & a little shopping at phipps plaza, we made our way to the real fun. hello, ponce city market!
on a beautiful sunshiney day, ponce city market is the only place i want to be. there’s shopping…there’s more food than i can dream of….and most importantly there’s a rooftop park with carnival games. for only $25 you can spend your whole day enjoying the views from skyline park & playing a few games. see if you’re any good at mini golf. have a skee ball tournament. hop in the photo booth. watch the sun set. walk around inside the market. buy yourself a bouquet at jj’s flower shop. sneak in some exercise at corepower yoga. there’s just so much to do. hit it up & live your best life. me personally, i had a photoshoot all over skyline park. it’s such an instagrammable spot, i couldn’t help myself.
did i mention the easy access you have to the artsy atlanta beltline?
