Today I'm joining the link party over at Centsational Girl where you're invited to share favorite things about where you live!
I'm originally from New Jersey and my husband's a native of Philadelphia. Although we've lived in Georgia since 1998, my family and I recently moved to the metro-Atlanta area in 2007. Atlanta's a beautiful city. It's clean and very diverse. There's a lot to see and do.
Little Creek Horse Farm- Atlanta's only public horse farm. You can enjoy access to the farm, pony rides and riding demonstrations.
Cagle's Family Farm is just a short drive away from anyone living in the metro-Atlanta area! They offer farm and dairy tours. During the Fall, they have a giant maze and a pumpkin patch.
I love the zoo! Zoo Atlanta is a great way to spend an afternoon.
Mountain Park Aquatic Center- so much more than I expected from a public pool! It's a fantastic place to visit.
Turner Field- A great place for Baseball lovers.
The High Museum of Art- The special exhibits are amazing.
Fox Theatre- A marvelous place for concerts and plays. A beautiful building with a lot of Atlanta history. I didn't see Larry The Cable Guy, although I hear he puts on a great show. His show happened to be displayed on the marquee at the time of my visit.
Centennial Olympic Park, Located across from the Georgia Aquarium and the CNN Center. My family enjoys walking through the park. The Olympic Rings fountain is great fun during the summer as well as the ice-skating rink in the winter. Overall, the park is a nice place to visit.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site
The Center is a fantastic tribute to an amazing man. You can visit Dr. King's birthplace as well as Ebenezer Baptist Church nearby.
Stone Mountain Park- I love bringing my children here. We always enjoy ourselves. The best part about Stone Mountain is the trek up the mountain. Although I do not recommend walking up a steep mountain at night, in the rain!
Winter activities include Snow Mountain. It’s fun for those of us who don’t normally get to play in the snow. There are lots of different activities from tubing to building snowmen!
Atlanta is full of great places to eat. Copeland's on Barrett Pkwy. never disappoints. Their menu is delicious. Their bananas foster cheesecake is to die for!
Dekalb Farmers Market- was one of the reasons we moved to this area. Food from everywhere! I was blown away by the variety and prices found here: meat, seafood, deli, bakery, wine, groceries, flowers, and aisle after aisle of fresh produce. This place is amazing!
Hope you enjoyed my tour!
