the georgia aquarium and coca cola center. theyre really cool, especially if youve never been before. The aquarium general admission tickets are $27 and the coca cola center is $15 but they have “The Pemberton Pass” which allows you to go to both for $36.50. & theyre within walking distance of each other too.

In Atlanta, if you like art, the High Museum is pretty good.  Also, there are some great pubs around.  The Porter, in Little 5 Points, is a favorite, as is The Brick Store in Decatur.  Also, The Flying Biscuit is a great brunch place – the one in Candler Park has the best atmosphere in my opinion.  Actually, I really like the whole Decatur area – there are cute shops and restaurants, and you can walk over to Agnes Scott College, which my Fiance says looks like Hogwarts.  πŸ™‚ 

Have fun!  The spring is the best time to visit.

I love to eat brunch/lunch at Murphy’s in the Virginia Highlands!  It’s so fun there with really neat shops (near Emory) and great food!  Also there’s a Paper Source there as well (bridal bonus).

I second the GA aquarium and world of Coke, but also love Fernbank Museum of Natural History too!  Really great fun and learn about GA’s past.

If you’re skirting the GA coast (Near NC & SC), why not visit St. Simon’s or Jekyll Island? Maybe Savannah?  All 3 are places T and I have gone to for little romantic getaways.  Terribly charming!

The exhibit at the High right now is something about the history of cars.  Meh.  Not the best one I’ve seen in the world.  I personally have to plug the Atlanta Zoo.  I’ve travelled a lot, and next to Seattle, Atlanta’s zoo is pretty stinkin’ awesome. 

My favorite places to eat around town: Two Urban Licks, Nan Thai Fine Dining, Rathbun’s. 

Favorite bars: Park Tavern, Blind Willies

I also second the Flyring Biscuit near Candler Park.  There’s also a bridal boutique next door (Kelly’s Closet).  πŸ˜‰  And seconding Little Five Points as well.  It’s fun and quirky…The Vortex there has some montrous burgers.

I live here in Atlanta, so if you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

I’d recommend Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC! http://www.biltmore.com/ It’s amazing, and so many different things to see… house, gardens, winery, walking trails… just incredible. However, Asheville is in the mountains, further to the West of the state. If you’re looking to stay more toward the coast… Wilmington is such a charming place. Quaint shops on the river front, some museums, tours of historic homes, the Battleship North Carolina is also harbored there, which you can tour. And it’s not at all far from the beach! Hope you enjoy!

Biltmore in Asheville is amazing.. South Carolina and North Carolina have a bunch of waterfalls that are beautiful– most are less than a mile round trip– and close together so you can see several at once.  If you’ve never seen the east coast–the ocean is a must!
