One of the best restaurants in the Inman/Krog Street market area!!! Usually packed full you will want to make reservations, but there are two of you sitting at the bar can be a lot of fun. The lighting is low with some hip hop jams playing overhead. Their food is ridiculous! Like Italian and Asian fusion with a funky southern twist. I recommend the the 20 egg yolk tagliatelle. It's light with a buttery sauce and full of fun ingredients like kimchi and wild mushrooms. Guaranteed and all around great experience!

Like Top Chef? Don't miss Kevin Gillespie's restaurant Gun Show. Gunshow, offers a bold, new take on the traditional dining experience. Inspired by Brazilian churrascaria-style dining and Chinese dim sum, Kevin combined the two for a decidedly fun and delicious result. Dishes are presented on rolling carts and trays to diners at their tables where they can then choose what to order. Pricing is a la carte

Established in October of 2000 and set in the historic Cotton Mill general store, Agave has been named the Best Southwestern Restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia. The Native American ambience is warm & welcoming. A cozy little spot that is filled with the smells of fresh southwestern spices. Try the Fresh Georgia mountain trout stuffed with crawfish, mushrooms, onions, & basil over Spanish rice with a roasted tomatillo sauce & freshly cut cilantro. Definitely want to make a reservation as it gets very busy.

Amazing Tex Mex restaurant. Does get really busy and they don't take reservations. Best time to go in, depending on your party size, is 5-6. They usually get slammed right at 6:30-7. The outside seating is wonderful but also in high demand, so the bar can be a nice alternative.

At the heart of Ponce City Market, the Central Food Hall is becoming the most vibrant food hall and market in the Southeast. James Beard Award-winning chefs the likes of Anne Quatrano, Linton Hopkins, and Sean Brock join Atlanta’s most exciting young purveyors and restauranteurs to offer everything from Georgia and Carolinas-caught seafood, to classic burgers, cold-pressed juice, and locally-made kimchee and Korean steamed buns. Similar to the legendary food hall at Chelsea Market in Manhattan—also owned by the developers of Ponce City Market—the Central Food Hall is a culinary gathering place within a revamped historic space, but with the distinct character and flavors of Atlanta.

One of my absolute favorite breakfast places! Everything is great here. I especially love their Fried Green Tomatoes. Their pancakes are also REALLY good. You can't go wrong with anything. It's a great southern home town cooking and a great southern home town feel. They don't accept reservations and their is ALWAYS a wait but it's SO worth it! I would suggest getting there early to make sure you get on the list quickly and so they don't run out of anything. The staff is AMAZING always pleasant and eager to help. If you haven't been definitely add it to the top of your list.

Food and Music. GREAT for a date night. Lots of ambience. For parking, I recommend, first, downloading the Park Mobile App and adding all your information in there. Then, I suggest entering from Ponce City Market's back entrance (right near the bridge crossing Ponce de Leon) and park underneath there. After you drive down the ramp and to the end of the deck, take a left towards the blue zone and then find a spot. Enter Zone 222 on Park Mobile, and then pay for your parking. Their parking system is a mess without it, and this location in this ramp is the least stressful and relatively close to the venue. DRINKS: Vino-phile? Then you'll love this place. They have tap wine, which is fantastic

Making its home in the Old Fourth Ward along the Atlanta Streetcar route, the entrance to the Edgewood Speakeasy is behind the bookcase inside Bone Lick BBQ. The cozy 1920s themed drinking den features brick walls and part of the original nearly century-old structure, as a simple wooden bar plays host to a full bar program complete with moonshine and boutique distilled spirits, making you wish smoking jackets were still in style.

Want to see something weird? The Doll’s Head Trail was the work of a local carpenter named Joel Slaton, who envisioned an art project created from discarded doll parts and other trash that was scattered around the site. He encouraged visitors to contribute their own found art, and it’s been collecting there ever since. The pieces are dominated by doll heads, but also include bottle creations, collages, decorated chinks of old bricks, and beheaded doll & truck part tableaus. Know Before You Go The entrance to Constitution Lakes Park is near the east side of the intersection of Moreland Ave and South River Industrial Blvd SE. Follow trails and signs from the parking lot to access the trail

Did you know there is a natural waterfall inside Atlanta city limits? This hike leads you to it, and it’s only 20 minutes from Downtown.

Don’t be fooled by the length of this trail. What it lacks in distance it makes up for in elevation changes and scenic surroundings. The paved boardwalk connects two parks in Decatur -- Mason Mills Park and Medlock Park -- as it meanders through tall trees and over creeks. Future expansions may connect this PATH trail to the Emory University campus.

This should not be compared to the museum of Natural History in NYC or DC, but it's still a very fun trip for families. Three floors. Very top is am indoor explorer themed play area for kids. It's large and great for a rainy day. Nature exhibits then continue on down to the bottom floor, including a giant T-Rex in the center of the building. Do NOT miss the outdoor treetop part of the museum. This was added recently and includes an outdoor climbing area of older kids and also a small playground for younger kids themed like ant hills. VERY cute and a great way to burn off some energy

This place is a really cool hipster place. Good mix of diverse food and people. You could spend all day here. Eat, shop, drink, play at the roof top skyline park. Parking could be really busy. They do have street parking if your lucky to find one and parallel park. Parking cost about $1 per hour. Lots of home decor shops and park trails near by. Make sure you check the roof top skyline parks sites.
