Time for Some Retail Therapy

Whether you’re paying with cash, debit or credit – there’s a million and one places in Atlanta to fill your car’s trunk with colorful shopping bags.

Draw up a checklist and make your way through marking off each of the Top 7 Malls in the State. Most of the best ones are right here in Atlanta but it’s worth the drive to the Mall of Georgia in Buford for a true shopper’s paradise. With 200+ stores and an IMAX Theater it’s one of the largest malls in the USA!

Those seeking out a localism shopping experience will enjoy the incredible Georgia made goods available at The Beehive.

And with the sun coming out it’s time to restock the kids’ closet with some lighter clothing. Here are the 9 best places to buy new duds for the little ones.

Paradise for Foodies

The Atlanta food scene attracts visitors from all across the globe – and if you’re looking for inspiration to get out and tempt your palate with something new, listen to Parisian Christiane Lauterbach’s take on the evolution of the Atlanta restaurant scene.

And now that your lips are smacking, take a look at some of the best restaurants in the city center.

Of course you could always scrap that newfangled stuff and stick to what Atlanta does best. BBQ – and lots of it.

Did Someone Say “Chattahoochee”?

Forget about water parks. The hotter it gets the more you’ll want to “Shoot the Hooch” with Cool River Tubing.

Trips start at just $5 and All-Day Tubing is available for under ten bucks!

And for dry land fun, head to Piedmont Park and rent something that rolls from Skate Escape.

For History Buffs

Step into America’s civil rights history at the MLK Jr. Historical Site on Auburn Avenue. Tour Dr. King’s boyhood home and pay your respects to the man who was at the forefront of the American civil rights movement. The grounds feature 35 acres of free activities and family fun.

Honor another southern great at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum. Exhibits feature memorabilia from the Carter presidency as well as a full replica of the Oval Office and photographs marking important events from his life and political career.

And at the Atlanta History Center you’ll find two historical houses and 22 acres of gardens and trails.

Only in Atlanta

The beauty of this city is its broad appeal to people from every walk of life. On the same day you can visit the High Museum of Art before guzzling gallons of sugary heaven at World of Coca-Cola!

So, get up, get busy and make it a fabulous day in Atlanta!
