Here are some of the places to consider during your short-term stay in Atlanta:

Atlanta restaurants

When in Georgia’s state capital, a trip to Atlanta’s top-rated eaterie, Aviva by Kameel, is a must! The restaurant specializes in Mediterranean dishes with a signature touch. Also noteworthy is Cakes & Ale, which offers a simple but exceptional dining experience. It serves new American and seasonal cuisine with a tasteful twist. Another fan favorite, Fandangles, is located in downtown Atlanta and offers American dining in a beautiful hotel restaurant atmosphere. For upscale dining, Atla is located at the St. Regis Hotel and brings American fine dining to a new level of excellence.


Atlanta nightlife

Top places to visit include Tongue & Groove, a top destination for many corporate events and the home of daily themed parties perfect for unwinding and basking in the lavish atmosphere of Atlanta’s nightlife. Also notable are Whisky Mistress, a small-plates dining facility with several VIP lounges,  and finally Cosmolava, a three-level destination with five bars and regular appearances by the city’s most acclaimed DJs.

Atlanta history

Atlanta’s Center for Civil and Human Rights downtown offers three main, must-see exhibits: The MLK Jr. Collection, and the Human Rights and Civil Rights exhibits. The Martin Luther King, Jr. Historic Site, a free, 35-acre site with monuments, landmarks and several facilities, is also a great destination for the history lover. If, on the contrary, history isn’t your thing and you prefer science, the Fernbank Natural Museum would be a better choice. It offers exhibits of the largest dinosaurs discovered as well as an IMAX Theater experience and a 900-gallon saltwater aquarium.
