Time to Paint the Town Red
Where are the best places in the city to go and be seen? Here are five hot spots we suggest for anyone from Atlanta, Buckhead, Brookhaven, Marietta, and Kennesaw.
1. Ponce City Market
A great place to bring a date, Ponce City Market in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward neighborhood has become one of the most popular hangouts since it opened just a few years ago.
Mainly a food hall with some boutique restaurants, it’s a great place to grab dinner and a drink. But once the sun goes down, head up to Skyline Park on the roof for a boardwalk-style setup including games, food, mini golf, drinks, and a slide. And just like the name suggests, you’ll see why this is one of the best places to view the Atlanta skyline.
2. Krog Street Market
Travel about a mile down the BeltLine trail from Ponce City Market, and you’ll find Krog Street Market.
