All Star Weekend in Atlanta: Places to Visit when in the Peach State

Olympic Park

NBA All Star weekend was held in Atlanta this weekend. Here’s all the coolest places to check out on your next visit!! And some tips from locals to keep your vacation stress free.

WHERE TO STAY:

Westin Atlanta – location makes this the number 1 choice, right beside the sky view Ferris wheel and tons of nightlife and great food.

The American – location, location, location… and an amazingly beautiful modern architectural masterpiece.

The W – all you need to know is the pool is on the roof, and if you don’t know then you just don’t know.

BIGGEST TIP: park in your hotels garage, make sure it is secure. Try not to park on the street or in an area that is not watched. UBER!!! Clubs cost $5-30 dollars on a regular night. If you are COVID nervous this is NOT the city for you, very little mask mandating indoors.

THINGS TO DO:
Georgia Aquarium – they have sharks, sea lions and penguins just to name a few and it’s gigantic! If your looking for something fun for your girls or your family this is the perfect spot. Right outside is Olympic Park (which is closed right now) and the Coca-Cola museum, perfect for a stroll outdoors.

Atlanta Zoo – the perfect place to enjoy the Georgia weather!! Great exhibits just make sure to get there early most days it closes at 330 because of covid.

Martin Luther King Jr church – historic and an amazing area to reflect.

Atlanta Georgia

College Football Hall of Fame – lots to do, and very interactive! I got to throw footballs and i had a blast!

Popular Restaurants:

Escobar – 2 chains restaurant, get there early. It’s more like a club on the weekends and after 5.

Breakfast at Barney’s- beautiful small brunch spot, make a reservation and if you can’t get in head down the street to Graffiti Lounge – they have great food!

2 Licks- Grab you some Salmon chips if you like capers you will nose definitely love it
