Atlanta at a Glance

First things first, I love Atlanta.  I would live there. I know my traveling companions would all say the same. Thanks to one of the co-counselors at the camp I work at who lives in Atlanta, we were given many ideas of what to do with our short time in the city, and I think we chose wisely.

 We started our day at Dr. Bombay’s Underwater Tea Party. Books lined the walls of the cozy tea shop making a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Proceeds from each of the books went directly to a project called “The Learning Tea.”  This partnership in India encourages education for women in developing areas by providing them with scholarships. Who can say no to that? Their beautiful efforts aside, this eclectic cafe captured my heart, and the menu is bursting with different flavors waiting to be tasted. (Also, the chocolate mousse cake was divine, just putting that out there.)

A sunny stroll around Pied Mont park led us to stunning views of the city. With many activities and recreational centers, play areas for children, winding sidewalks, and views of water, we were all captivated by the warm Georgia sunshine.

We ended our day at a delicious Mexican restaurant and a walk along the Jackson Street Bridge. I’m told this is a famous shot from The Walking Dead. I just found the sunset to be one of the best I’ve ever seen.

How did you spend your time in Atlanta?
