Atlanta! The bustling capital of Georgia is the perfect choice for a vacation. Whether you're staying for a while or it's just a quick getaway, you won't be starved of things to do when down in the ATL. Here are just some of the reasons you should make Atlanta your next vacation destination.


Food, food, food

WE R TOTAL "WOO" GIRLS RN BC WU FRIES @torchedhopbrewing came into our life and also, it's Friggity FRYday. We highly recommend checking out this prize on Ponce. Not only are their beers super guzzle-able (it's a word, k), but their pizza, mac and cheese, alcoholic gummy bears (YUP), and their WU fries seen here are all to die for. They've got games, goodies, and guzzle-worthy drinks galore. #didwesayenoughwords #torchedhopbrewing #fryday #friesonakeg #hungrygirlsdoitbetter

There's no way we could talk about Atlanta without paying attention to the incredible culinary scene. Being in Georgia, Atlanta is known for mouthwatering southern staples like such as fried chicken and grits, but there's much more on offer.

We smell like smoked meat and suburbia and we love it. Yup, new Q spot on the scene and we are covered and smothered in evidence that we loved it. @kingbarbecueavalon is brought to you by Shaun Doty and former Fox Bros and Community Q pit master, Carey Wise, forming one hell of a meaty man monstrosity. All signs point to YES, that we will be OTP mommies in no time if spots like this keep popping up over there. #meatymondays #kingbarbecue #avaloninsider #hungrygirlsdoitbetter

HOLLAAAAAA Monday has come to a close and we have come to almost being your new favorite #fitspo account. Jk jk we ate like 4-9 biscuits after this shot was taken bc when one frequents @holleranddash it would be straight up disrespectful to pass one of those buttery babies. HOWEVER, their new lunch options including this farm fresh bowl, toasts, and sandwiches will totally inspire you from being a big ole biscuit head 24/7 so that's saying something. #holleranddash #leaves #healthiswealth #hungrygirlsdoitbetter

Atlanta is most famous for its music scene, and has earned its rep as the epicentre of hip-hop and R&B music and culture. The musical metropolis is teeming with talent, and started the careers of some of our favorite artists. Just to name a few, Usher, T.I., Gucci Mane, Young Jeezy, and Migos all got their musical breaks in Atlanta or nearby!

If you're a fan of trap - and who isn't these days? - you'll find what you're looking for. Atlanta gave birth to this musical movement which has since saturated hip hop and made huge waves into pop music.

Don't just take our word for it, even Bruno Mars acknowledged this, calling on the NFL to include artists from Atlanta in the next Super Bowl Half-time Show, given that it will be held in the A in 2018.


A city known for its musical residents, there are plenty of places to go if you want to catch some live music. Who knows, you might meet the next big thing to come out of Atlanta! Check here for some tips.


The history

As the birthplace of legendary civil rights hero Reverend Dr Martin Luther King Jr, Atlanta has its fair share of historical landmarks. You could take a visit to The King Center and the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Park which houses his childhood home and Ebenezeer Baptist Church where he preached.

History is messy, complex, and full of fascinating stories. Come experience our shared past, and discover unexpected stories of strength and courage! #makehistory #internationalwomensday

If you're a total history buff, you should take a trip to the incredible 33-acre grounds of the Atlanta History Center, home to an array of museums including the Centennial Olympic Games Museum, the Kenan Research Centre, and the Atlanta History Museum. The same group manages the Margaret Mitchell House in downtown Atlanta, the home of the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning 'Gone With The Wind', complete with an exhibit highlighting her life and times.

The great outdoors

City life is all fine and good, but sometimes it's great to get out into the wilderness for some fresh air and a change of scenery. If you're willing to venture a little out of the city, then Stone Mountain Park is one of the many local spots a stone's throw away from Atlanta where you can truly experience the beauty and serenity of nature.

If you'd rather stay close to the center of it all, then there are some outdoor hotspots right in ATL that you could go to. Pay a visit to the Atlanta Botanical Garden and enjoy a leisurely walk amongst the dazzling flowers.

The Parterre Garden is blooming bold and bright with Zinnias! Buzz on down this week and catch these busy pollinators in action. 🌼🐝🌸
