If you want to see how the local folk live in Atlanta, be sure to visit Little Five Points. This is the local bohemian hangout in Atlanta, offering a huge mix of theater, art and shopping opportunities. As well, there is the Horizon Theatre, Dad’s Garage and Stages Theatre that have to be visited and at Virginia-Highland you will find cool boutiques.
For the more outdoorsy amongst you, check out East Atlanta Village that features cool, earthy restaurants. And for those interested in architecture, Cabbagetown is a must-see for its impressive architectural restorations.
If you want to spend your time focusing on Atlanta culture, get tickets for the Atlanta Opera, Atlanta Ballet (the country’s oldest professional dance company) and the Swan Coach House Gallery that can be found at the Atlanta History Center.
