Zoo Atlanta

Visit the too-cute panda twins at Zoo Atlanta

You can visit cuddly cubs Ya Lun and Xi Lun at Zoo Atlanta, along with gorillas, lions, Sumatran tigers, red pandas, tanukis, and hundreds of other creatures.
Chattahoochee River

Shoot the ‘hooch

Lazy Atlanta summers are best enjoyed lathered in sunscreen, idling downstream in an inflatable tube, and reaching for a cooler floating slowly behind you on the Chattahoochee River.
Margaret Mitchell House

Learn the backstory of Atlanta’s most famous novel

Shortly after Margaret Mitchell left her job as a reporter for the Atlanta Journal in the mid-1920s, she sat down at a desk at her ground-floor apartment on Peachtree Street—she and her husband, John Marsh, affectionately referred to the unit as “the dump”—and began writing the bulk of a Southern soap opera that became just as much a part of Atlanta’s DNA as Coca-Cola.
High Museum of Art

Get cultured at the Woodruff Arts Center

Visitors can take in a performance by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra at Symphony Hall, or ponder works by a diverse cadre of artists like Alex Katz, Walker Evans, and Thornton Dial at the High Museum of Art.

Skyview

Spend a day playing tourist downtown

Fox Theatre

Learn the history of the Fox Theatre—and of its ghosts

The iconic theater is perhaps most famous for the fact that it's still here—a successful 1974 campaign to save it from the wrecking ball led to its designation as a national historic landmark.
Piedmont Park

Spend an afternoon enjoying the great outdoors in Midtown

Piedmont Park is the closest thing Atlanta has to New York’s famed Central Park, and on a beautiful day you’ll find cartwheeling kids, hand-holding couples, picnicking families, and all manner of joggers, skateboarders, soccer players, and Frisbee throwers. Nestled within the park is the 30-acre Atlanta Botanical Gardens.
Fernbank Forest

Escape the traffic and take hike through Fernbank Forest

There’s a place in Atlanta where you can’t hear car horns or thrumming engines, where it’s a bit cool even on sweltering August days, where you can forget that you’re in the middle of a large city entirely. Fernbank Forest, Atlanta’s largest urban forest, is 65 acres of tranquility.
Brick + Mortar

Take a local shopping crawl on the Westside

For a treasure trove of chic clothes, gifts, jewelry, and furniture made or designed in Atlanta, shop hop a cluster of boutiques along Howell Mill Road from Westside Provisions District to Marietta Street.
