While Atlanta magazine will always remain dedicated to delivering compelling stories in print, we are excited to bring you digital editions as a complement to our print issues.
This Month's Issue
This issue is a perennial favorite—our Annual Best of Atlanta issue! Curating this year’s Best of Atlanta was a particular challenge due to social distancing and other COVID-related protocols. But, you can rest assured that our editorial team has compiled a list of our favorites in Food & Drink (of course), Style & Design, Work & Play, Arts & Culture, and Beauty & Wellness.
What a year we’ve had! Consider this November issue your own personal “therapy” issue – or as the cover subject reads – “How to Find Calm in a Year of Chaos.” Wishing 2020 a quick departure, we offer advice from several trained professionals on how to find inner peace when the world around us seems to be falling apart. We’ve even provided you with your very own Coloring Page, presented by our friends at Martin County Florida.
As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Atlanta Pride with this issue, Atlanta magazine is proud to host a series of virtual conversations in support of Atlanta’s LGBTQ+ community. Atlanta magazine is also proud to be hosting our fourth annual GIVE Atlanta Challenge. In this issue, you’ll find profiles of thirteen hard-working Atlanta nonprofits that are making a tremendous impact on our community.
We’re hopeful our September issue inspires you to get out and explore the North Georgia Mountains through hiking, biking, fishing, golfing, and discovering a new hidden gem for an overnight’s stay—one of the many unique cabins, yurts, campgrounds, or resorts our state has to offer. No doubt as the leaves begin to change color, we’ll want to continue exploring all of the wonders that the great State of Georgia has to offer.
At a time when the need for dialogue is greatest, the August issue reflects a series of conversations that we believe are a starting point. David Dennis, Jr., a writer, author and former adjunct professor of journalism at Morehouse College, details the history of racial injustices that have plagued Georgia for decades as he describes in chilling detail the final moments of Ahmaud Arbery’s life.
This year’s Top Doctors list is our largest list ever published and includes 1,002 physicians across 62 specialties. And, our editors bring you a host of compelling stories of heroic frontline workers including that of our Cover Feature on Dr. Eric Flenaugh of Grady Memorial Hospital who helped lead that hospital’s COVID-19 response.
With this issue, we both celebrate and underscore the significance of Atlanta’s restaurant scene along with suggestions for what we, as patrons, can do to help our favorite dining destinations—from purchasing dining bonds to ordering takeout and taking advantage of curbside service.
We explore Georgia’s historic Ocean Highway, U.S. Highway 17, which hugs the Georgia coastline – this particular stretch of scenic road runs from Savannah to Brunswick. This feature will take readers on a journey through the history, the places, the food, the culture, and the personalities that make this road trip so special.
In this April issue you will find several compelling stories including an in-depth look at the Atlanta real estate market and the issue of “affordable housing.” As Atlanta’s population has swelled over the past years, and more people embrace living closer intown, this has led to soaring property values.
