The Usual Attractions

Six Flags

Everybody loves Six Flags. Just get on a rollercoaster and scream out every frustration.

White Water

I love White Waters, its coolest place to hang out in the summer

Museums to Amuse

Fernbank Museum

Fernbank has good food and changing exhibits. It’s good for when you want that interesting yet smoother pace.

Zoo Atlanta

I love animals so this is just an awesome place for me personally. Also if you just want to walk in nature and enjoy a cool day, this is the place to do it.

Georgia Aquarium

I am dying to see the new dolphin show. Just another great place to spend with family or friends.

World of Coca-Cola

You get to make your own flavor at the end of the tour, and I personally love most coca cola products so its an awesome place. Also if you live in Atlanta and you’ve never been, shame on you.

Atlanta Botanical Gardens

Pretty flowers and in my opinion it would be a great place for a date.

Places to Go

Little Five Points

Food, shopping, culture, need I say more.

Underground Atlanta

More food, more shopping, more culture.

Games and Recreation

Baseball Games

It’s the Atlanta Braves, you’ve got to see them at least once, baseball fan or not.


Take out your road rage on an indoor track, also there’s other arcade games. DISCOUNT TICKETS

Atlanta Rocks 

Safe indoor thrill, doesn’t get much better than that. This would also be a pretty good place to have a date.

Lesli made her way to Atlanta over 20 years ago, after living in Germany, Japan and six U.S. states. She relishes the discovery of obscure, offbeat and unwonted places, and she will chat up any willing stranger to uncover a new secret locale.

After 18 years in software development, Lesli bailed on the corporate scene. When she’s not traveling, she’s hiking in the mountains or checking out Atlanta’s culinary scene, whiskey in hand.

Lesli has two kiddos -Cooper and Elliot- plus two bonus kids currently at UGA, and she’s happily married to her soul mate.
