Top 5 Places to Visit in Atlanta

Top 5 Places to Visit in Atlanta

Last month #HaloCigsTravel showed you around the South Florida area. This month we decided to head north to get a real feel of the South where we hit up The ATL to check out its growing vaping scene. While we were there we decided to check out what else Hotlanta has to offer. Here are our top five places to visit in the A-Town area:

5. The Varsity

“What’ll ya have… What’ll ya have?” Be prepared to be asked this question as you step up to the counter. And you better be ready to order when they ask, or you will get left behind at this fast-paced fast food joint, which is an experience unlike any other. The Varsity has been a staple in Atlanta since 1928 and is a must-visit for all you fast food lovers. They offer up loaded chili dogs and chili cheeseburgers, served with a side of grease. Be sure to finish off your meal with their famous frosted orange shake for dessert. You won’t be disappointed!

4. Williamson Bros. Bar-B-Q

If you find yourself venturing out to the Marietta area be sure to check out Williamson Bros. Bar-B-Q for some great BBQ that is served with loads of friendly Southern hospitality. This place has meats and BBQ sauce options to please any BBQ lovers’ taste buds. Also, sweet tea – y’all have to try the South’s sweet tea. We sampled the pulled pork and sliced brisket sandwiches – doused with their homemade BBQ sauces – and we were pleasantly stuffed by the end of the meal. Just remember, if you venture outside of downtown Atlanta to visit places like Williamson Bros. Bar-B-Q, be prepared to get some red clay on your boots.

3. Jackson Street Bridge

If you’re looking to get a great view of downtown Atlanta, look no further. The Jackson Street Bridge is a must for any photography lovers passing through town. Visit this spot at night to experiment with long exposure shots as the bustling Atlanta traffic passes underneath. This bridge is also great for your blue hour and golden hour shots of downtown around dawn and dusk. The city skyline from this vantage point makes for the perfect backdrop when snapping some pictures to post to your IG account.

2. Ponce City Market

The Ponce City Market has a ton to offer. This place is filled with restaurants, shopping boutiques, entertainment, offices, and even residential apartments. This is all housed in a huge historic brick building – previously occupied by Sears and then Atlanta City Hall East – and easily accessible by way of the multi-use Atlanta BeltLine trail. Along the BeltLine you will see the talent and creativity of Atlanta residents on display in the form of murals, sculptures, and even Tiny Doors (see below)! This is an up-and-coming scene where you could spend an entire day, and we think it’s worth exploring.

1. Centennial Olympic Park

This beautiful park is right in the heart of downtown Atlanta – with plenty of entertainment options within walking distance. Right across the street is the Georgia Aquarium – one of the largest aquariums in the world – as well as the World of Coca-Cola. For all the sports fanatics, you can visit the nearby College Football Hall of Fame, Philips Arena, and the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Philips Arena is home to the Atlanta Hawks (NBA) and the Atlanta Dream (WNBA). The Mercedes-Benz stadium is home to the Atlanta Falcons (NFL) and the recently formed Atlanta United FC (MLS), and it has an awesome retractable roof. Ride the Skyview for a nice view of the park; although, for an even better birds-eye-view of Atlanta be sure to ride the Westin’s glass elevator up to the 72nd floor and enjoy a nice meal at the Sun Dial Restaurant while you’re up there. Centennial Olympic Park features a cool Fountain of Rings and other tributes to the 1996 Summer Olympics, which were hosted all around the Atlanta area.

Be sure to include these spots in your travel plans if you’re heading to The Big Peach and let us know what you think!
