Atlanta is a big metropolis, with its metro space spanning some 8,000 sq. miles. While residents like me fan out into numerous neighborhoods, most leisure guests and enterprise vacationers keep in three conveniently positioned ones: Buckhead, midtown, and downtown.
Buckhead is the peak of favor in Atlanta — a longtime tony neighborhood that resists datedness by usually welcoming shiny new builds, upscale shops, and a number of the nicest inns within the metropolis. Two designer malls anchor its popularity as a luxurious shopper’s haven, and classy high-end eating places make it my default for date nights or fancy nights out with buddies. Buckhead Village is very charming throughout winter holidays.
Midtown is the well-established coronary heart of the town and one among my favourite elements — artsy with a lovingly tended gayborhood and landmark rainbow crosswalk at tenth and Piedmont; beautiful, expansive parks; and numerous structure. Hotels right here hold you central to most of Atlanta’s finest out of doors areas; genuine, accessible eating and nightlife; and historic points of interest. This is the place I all the time stayed earlier than I moved right here.
You’ll wish to keep in a resort downtown if you’d like shut entry to the extra industrial vacationer sights, like Centennial Olympic Park, the CNN studio, a 200-foot Ferris wheel, and the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. As the town’s central enterprise district, downtown has a sure polish in main-street areas.
