What to Do in Atlanta: Never Ending Fun
There really is so much to do in Atlanta. The amount of sports teams alone make it easy to have a good time in the city. Catch the Falcons, the Braves, the Thrashers if you are a hockey fan, or Atlanta United FC if soccer is your thing. Alongside a great sports culture is an even greater outdoorsmen culture. The city and the surrounding perimeter are home to hunting, fishing, and camping galore. Ready to cast a line? Then you’re in luck. Atlanta offers prime fishing spots close enough to the city for ease of access but far enough to help you get into the zone. Lake Shamrock-Blaylock, Morgan Falls Overlook Park, and of course the Chattahoochee River are all near perfect spots to cast a line after a long day of work. You can even get a group of friends together and spend the entire day floating down the cool waters of the Chattahoochee. Too beat to fish? Take a leisurely stroll through the Georgia Aquarium and let the fish come to you. From whale sharks, to bottlenose dolphins, manta rays, penguins, and much more. The Georgia Aquarium has it all. If you are looking for even more ways to relax, make your way over to Piedmont Park. At 200 acres, Piedmont Park has something for everyone. The grassy knolls, ponds, and tree lined sidewalks are perfect for a family outing or a daytime date. In need of shopping, dining, and entertainment? Try Ponce Market for diverse food stalls, local shopping, glorious city views and mini golf on top of the skyline park. If Ponce isn’t your style then try The Battery for classic southern dining, cold local beer, endless shopping, and a Braves game at the one and only Truist Park. Atlanta has it all. And the amount of activities are only the beginning. The cost of living is the true cherry on top.
