Atlanta is one the most underrated cities on the East Coast! There is so much to do, I am going to have to summarize it all so this review doesn't drag on. One a weekly basis, the city offers various family friendly events, arts and cultural festivals, a hip nightlife, historical events, and so much more. The Beltline (an outdoor walkway that connects the inner neighborhoods) has brought so much life to Atlanta. You can spend a whole weekend walking it and visiting various shops, restaurants, all while marveling at local artist's installations and awesome street art. Atlanta also has some of the top universities and hospitals in the nation. Not into city life? Just jump in a car and drive an hour north to be surrounded by mother nature and enjoy scenic views and hikes. There is really so much to do in this beautiful, culturally diverse city- everyone will feel at home here!
Review Atlanta
Atlanta is a melting pot of experiences. There is always something to do or explore, which offers an endless amount of possibilities. I would like to see greater expansion in the public transit system, including incentives for utilizing the transit system already in place. Overall, Atlanta has a niche for people of all backgrounds and interests. Come walk the beltline, see a show or entice the foodie in you! Atlanta is everyone's place!
I love it here! It is a wonderful city that continues to improve and I'm so happy to call this metropolitan my home! But the beauty of this city is that it expands 360 degrees outside of its boundaries and there are neighborhoods that fit every lifestyle. Cozy historic walking neighborhood with beautiful street art, lofts in historic cotton mills and master-planned communities complete with PGA golf courses. Metro Atlanta is pleasantly diverse!
