Atlanta is the charming capital of Georgia and home to our newest Michael Stars boutique located at the gorgeous Ponce City Market. This city offers a wide selection of delicious eateries, quaint coffee shops and lush parks. Explore our list of must-see places if you happen to find yourself in town.
PIEDMONT PARKIf you’re in the mood for outdoor adventures, head over to Piedmont Park. It’s Atlanta’s version of Central Park and offers an escape from the busy city. Piedmont Park features unique trails for visitors to rollerblade or walk leisurely, tennis courts and a small pond. This park is a great place to visit with events year-round.
THE OPTIMIST+ KROG ST. MARKETSome of the best seafood in Atlanta can be found at The Optimist. Located in downtown Atlanta, this unique eatery is known for their exuberant oyster bar shaped like a surfboard and a putting green to practice your golf game until your table is called.
If you’re looking for more variety and want to experience specialty food like beef brisket or andouille, stop by Krog Street Market. Known as a destination for Atlanta’s in-town culture, the market is designed to be as authentic as the 1920’s warehouse it is build into. It’s a gathering place of all sorts filled with Southern-grown restaurants, produce and local goods. Think: Southern market meets West Coast appeal, right in the heart of Inman Park.
OCTANE COFFEEYou can’t go to Atlanta without visiting Octane Coffee. Noted as a community of passionate coffee drinkers and voted best of Atlanta in 2014, this spot creates the best drinks in town. These award-winning baristas brew Counter Culture beans via Chemex and French press, expertly pull espresso shots and make their own syrups. Cheers to that!
The I Love Juice Bar in Atlanta offers juices that are vegetarian, gluten-free, organic and always uses 100% whole fruits and vegetables. It’s the best spot if you’re on a health kick, and it tastes just as good as it looks.
