As we all know, traveling is probably my favorite thing in the world. Being able to explore somewhere new is so amazing. In fact, I'm finally visiting another country for the first time right now!

Even though I love adventuring off to new places, I've come to realize that there are some pretty special places right in the US, including Atlanta! After living here for a few years, I've developed some favorite spots and I always love sharing them with visitors. So I've decided to put together a little guide of where to shop, eat and play when you're in Atlanta!

Buckhead Shops
This new shopping center is by far the best one in town. I really love that it's an outdoor shopping center. It's decorated so beautifully with flowers and plants growing everywhere. Plus there's a Shake Shack there.

True Food Kitchen
I know this isn't exclusive to Atlanta, but it is new and it is definitely my favorite place to eat & drink. Every time I have a work meeting, I always suggest True Food. The kale salad is the best I've ever had and the margherita pizza is just too good to be true. Everything they serve is healthy/organic, so you can't even feel bad indulging in everything you want. They also have this seasonal watermelon rose cocktail that is everything.

Sprinkles ATM
Why is it that cupcakes taste better when they come from an ATM? Not that Sprinkles cupcakes aren't already amazing as is. Just writing this makes me want one immediately. Red velvet is their most popular flavor, but I love cinnamon the most.

This is one of the first places I went when I moved to Atlanta. It's a bar that also serves food and has so many awesome games downstairs. From skeeball to bocce ball, darts and board games, they have it all! They also sell boiled peanuts, which are like my favorite food ever, so I was sold on Ormsby's the second I saw the menu!
