Ponce City Market is a trendy upscale retail and food venue. It has trendy eateries and food stalls and upscale shopping similar to what you’d find in a mall. It is an adaptive reuse project where they took the old Sears warehouse and rehabbed it, but also preserved its original history. It's right on the beltline. There's also a rooftop entertainment area that has miniature golf and other stuff. Whole Foods is across the street.

This is mentioned in Atlas Obscura. There is art made out of old dolls and toys along the trail. Some people say it’s very creepy but I don’t find it scary at all. I’ve met the artist himself, he is sometimes there at the trail and he was also at the Atlas Obscura talk at the book festival.

One of the best restaurants in Atlanta, especially if you’re a foodie and want to get away from the typical BBQ & burger places that are more common. I recommend the bread, smoked trout, tortellini, and Panna cotta for dessert. The menu changes seasonally though, so these options might not be avail in the future.

Beautiful city park with walking paths and water feature. The Atlanta Zoo is also in Grant Park. It attracts a lot of visitors and you will see a lot of people out and about in this area on the weekends. There's a Farmer's market here on Sun mornings from Apr-Oct. It's an 8 min drive from my place, just ignore the GPS - take McDaniel to Ralph David Abernathy and go right. This turns into Georgia St and takes you straight there. Also explore the surrounding neighborhood. Grant Park has the most beautiful historic Victorian houses in the city. You can also stop by the Grant Park Coffeehouse for a quick bite which is on Cherokee Ave across the street.
