The city may be known for its sweltering summer weather (prompting tourists to call it “Hotlanta”) and as the home to the world’s busiest airport, but the best things to do in Atlanta go well beyond all that.
Georgia’s capital and its largest city boasts historic sites and attractions like Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthplace, vintage performance venues like the Fox Theatre, a vibrant nightlife scene and an eclectic range of activities to tackle with the kids in tow. Don’t forget the killer eats, too: the city carries bragging rights for some of the South’s most delicious restaurants, serving out-of-this-world meat-and-three dishes.
Shopaholics, art fiends, culture vultures, history buffs: we’ve got you all covered. Here is your Atlanta bucket list.
