    Thanks for posting CeeCee1994, and congrats on your upcoming move! I haven't been to Atlanta in years so looking forward to seeing what recommendations the community has for you. What's your favorite type of food?

    Atlanta is one of my favorite cities to visit.  Each neighborhood is a little different and its almost like visiting different places when you go from one area to another.  My favorite neighborhoods in Atlanta are Buckhead and Midtown.  Buckhead is an upscale area with many fine restaurants and shops.  Midtown is known for culture, arts, and diversity.  The Atlanta Convention & Visitor's Bureau has put together a great website which outlines restaurants and things to do in each neighborhood.  You will also find night club listings as well.  http://www.atlanta.net/

     

    My favorite place to stay in Atlanta is the JW Marriott Buckhead.  The staff is always warm and welcoming.  Next door to the hotel is the Lennox Shopping Mall which is one of the best places to shop in the city.  The hotel is also across the street from the MARTA which makes getting around the city really convenient.

    So many options in Atlanta….lots of tours, historic places, theaters, great shopping & restaurants.  If you were looking for a nice day trip kind of outing after your move,  the Georgia Aquarium & Stone Mountain Park are fun and enjoyable.  There are 2 Marriott choices right on the property of Stone Mountain.

     

    As to your upcoming stay for a concert, depending on where it is, check with the concierge about local favorites or the website vaboywnder suggests for dining/nightlife activities.

     

    Good luck with your move!

    I'll second vaboywnder's recommendation for dining in Buckhead -- Lots of good restaurants there. In addition to 77paris's suggestions, here are a few more possible future day-trip destinations:

    High Museum of Art -- world class art collection, from classic to contemporary, with a huge collection of African art

    Atlanta Botanical Garden -- 30 acres of beautiful gardens, fountains, and landscapes adjacent to Piedmont Park

    Fernbank Science Center -- The planetarium shows are always fascinating and entertaining

    Fernbank Museum of Natural History -- interesting and educational exhibits; IMAX theater and dining options

    Zoo Atlanta -- always an enjoyable place to visit and pack a picnic
