A season of raising support means a season of living at home with my parents, my 18-year-old sister, and our two dogs. I am so so thankful to have this time at home with my family before I move across the country to Los Angeles. I am excited to live in my hometown (Atlanta, GA) as an adult, something I haven’t really experienced before. In order to make the most of my time while at home, I decided to make a bucket list! I probably forgot a lot of things, and I’m sure as time goes on I will think of new things I want to add to the list. But here is what I got so far!
Food & Drinks
Sublime Doughnuts– I love doughnuts (I mean who doesn’t love doughnuts?!). So of course I’ll love a gourmet doughnut, right?
Bartaco– Taco Tuesday should be every day of the week!
West Egg– Breakfast for breakfast, breakfast for lunch, & breakfast for dinner is my motto!
Tom+Chee– Fall= colder weather=yummy soup and grilled cheese!
Krog Street Market– Who doesn’t love choices?! Krog Street Market (think Chelsea Market in Manhattan) has tons of yummy choices from tacos (are we seeing a bit of a theme here?) to Southern fried chicken and everything in between!
Things To Do
Skyline Park– Essentially a year-round fair on top of Ponce City Market. It doesn’t get much more hipster than that.
Jackson Street Bridge– The best spot in the city to get a (Instagram-worthy) picture of the Atlanta skyline.
The Goat Farm– You can see art and live music and drink coffee in a super cool coffee shop (another theme going on here). P.S. I’m not sure if there are actually goats there or not.
Piedmont Park– Not much to explain, but it’s a popular park in the city where you can go and have a picnic and play frisbee with friends!
The Oh Hellos– One of my favorite bands is playing in a sweet venue in the city (Variety Playhouse) just days away from my birthday. Mom? Tickets? B-day present?
Walk the Beltline– You can walk the Beltline for multiple reasons: 1. for exercise in a trendy location wearing trendy workout clothes, or 2. to take pretty pictures in front of street art to give your Instagram a more cultured and artsy feel.
Shoot the Hooch– So summery. So frat. Tubes, beer, friends, sun, and water– what’s not to love?
Hike Kennesaw Mountain– Kennesaw Mountain is a hidden gem right outside the city. If you go on a less hazy day, you can see the Atlanta skyline from the top (and it’s not a super far, super hard hike, so even I can do it!).
See popular ATL Street Art– Street art is everywhere in Atlanta. There are some popular must-see spots in the city, and once again they are a great way to beef up your Instagram profile (theme number 3!).
Fingers crossed I actually do all of these things! Here goes nothin!
