In a city of transplants, I’m an Atlanta native. (Wellllll, assuming the suburbs count.) I grew up just outside the Atlanta city limits, and I often thought that all that ol’ skyline had to offer was Braves games (R.I.P. Turner Field) and the occasional pre-prom dinner at the rotating Sundial Restaurant.
Or so I thought.
Fast forward to post-college life—my now-husband Stevie and I moved back to our hometown, only this time we planted ourselves in the city proper. I remember my first week of work when one of my coworkers mentioned spending “her entire weekend on the Beltline.” I assumed “the Beltline” was new slang for Highway 285. (It kind of forms a “belt” around the city…? No? Ok, just me then.) Wow, I was wrong. Like embarrassingly wrong.
I didn’t know the Beltline.
I didn’t know Ford Fry from Ford Motors.
But after almost six years back in this city I call home, I have a decent lay of the land. And while there are trendy spots popping up what seems like every weekend here in ATL, these are a few tried and true spots that I like to take out of town to show off our vividly green, southern-charm-filled, foodie city. Thanks so much to Neighborhoods.com for featuring my little Atlanta Guide. You can check out the guide here or by clicking the image below!
