Atlanta, a city with a unique personality

Atlanta, a city with a unique personality

  • 84

Most people would say that New York is a city within a city of neighborhoods. Each has its own personality and charm about him; to say that New York is a city like no other would be an understatement. On the other hand, Atlanta is a city that differs in its personality. At least, that would describe who is from here. With their personality. Atlanteans or locals and charm. Locals define themselves as visitors say it’s different than most metropolises.

Here are the MUST see

Little Five Points is the place for live music, old fashioned clothes and record shops. East Atlanta Village is the place to go if you’re looking for bar food and street art. In other neighborhoods, Castleberry Hill is all chic. For bars and restaurants, Midtown is where you want to be. Craving that old, Southern charm, for homes, then Virginia Highlands is where you need to look, and getting around to all the different neighborhoods is a breeze; you have a number of walking and streetcar paths that can connect 45 other communities.

In case you don’t know, Atlanta is the home of the Civil Rights Movement and where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was born.

Your first stop in this great city should be the National Center for Civil and Human Rights which includes a timeline of the movement. You can also see Dr. King documents and a replica of a lunch counter similar to the one where black students staged sit-ins.

Head to the Sweet Auburn district to see where Martin Luther King grew up. This now historic site includes a 35-acre visitor center, museum, and firehouse containing an exhibit on the desegregation of the Atlanta Fire Department.

In true Atlanta tradition, dine and drink on a patio, enjoy the outdoors: rooftop, sidewalk, or just about anywhere you can set up a table. They are excellent places to relax and enjoy a good meal while sipping your favorite cocktail.

Suppose one thing is true about the south, that delicious famous southern food. You will find something you like from pizza, burgers, barbecue, oyster bar and steakhouse.

Known for its urban sprawl, Atlanta is full of gardens and parks where you can relax while enjoying a public performance or cool off for summer fun. One of the city’s oldest parks is Grant Park, on the historic Eastside and surrounded by some of the grandest Victorian homes. At Piemonte Park, you’ll find everything you want from an urban park, including taking a dip in the free public swimming pool during those scorching hot days.

If sophistication is what you’re looking for, Freedom Park has outdoor artwork and sculptures with political themes.

Those who have Netflix might hear about Stranger Things, and if you happen to be a fan of this hit series, you might see some familiar areas since filming is here.

Jackson provides the setting in the fictional town of Indiana. Beyond Stranger thingsAtlanta brings in more high-end productions. Scenes from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Anchorman 2, The Vampire Diaries, AND The Walking Dead have all been filmed Citywide.

Since numerous series and movies have been filmed here, Atlanta is also home to a major studio. Tyler Perry studios acquired in 2006 by Tyler Perry himself, the studio is located on a 330-acre lot in the heart of Atlanta. It is the largest in Georgia and, in terms of acres, the largest in Los Angeles. What makes it special is that it was acquired by Mr. Perry himself, he didn’t have huge backers behind him like the others do.

To say Atlanta is unique is an understatement; from the world of entertainment, civil rights, neighborhoods and food, it’s not just the growing city of the South. This city continues to outperform in every category there is. Perhaps the only drawback is the southern location and negativity. However, I believe that with its ever-growing population, that too will become a thing of the past.
