Atlanta has been dubbed everything from the "capital of the new South" and "the next international city" to "the best place to do business." It's also a great place to visit. Fueled by the prosperity of local mega companies like Coca Cola and Holiday Inn, the prestige of hosting the 1996 Summer Olympic Games and the energy of young upwardly mobile types who have migrated to the city in droves - Atlanta is on fire. And this time it's a good thing. From world-class restaurants and a myriad of cultural attractions to a hip nightlife and sporting events galore, the city is cosmopolitan in every sense of the word. But Atlanta has also managed to maintain its historic character. Stop by the Atlanta History Center or visit the Martin Luther King Jr. Historical Site, a moving tribute to an American icon. Browse through the former home of famous author Margaret Mitchell or pop into the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum for details on the life and times of the former president and his family. Whether you choose modern urban endeavors or old southern pleasures, Atlanta will not disappoint.

This 185-acre park, home to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and to summer festivals, is also popular with joggers.
My husband and I took a 3 mile hike through the park on Christmas Day. There were a lot of people out doing the same thing, as well as biking, running, and playing games with their kids. We walked around Lake Clara Meer, past the teaching gardens, the sports oval, and along the Atlanta Botanical Garden. We were lucky enough to see the light shows in the Storza Woods that are choreographed to music as well as a lot of the lighted figures in other areas. We have gone to this show in the past but didn’t know exactly what days we would be in Atlanta, so we skipped it this year. Really a nice walk in mild temperatures.

31 beers on tap when we went there. They had 9 sours and several different barrel aged stouts (around 10 or so?) everything we tried we liked. I especially liked the Minotaur a whiskey barreled sour is very unique and we frequent breweries in every town we go to. It’s dog friendly and the staff was helpful and knowledgeable. It was fairly busy and still not much wait to get some pours. They offer 5oz tasters and 2oz tasters for the strong stouts. Don’t miss this place if you like unique breweries. Loved the artwork style on the cans and shirts. Keep up the good work!
