Parks & Nature
Henderson park contains a community vegetable garden that you are welcome to visit. I have a garden plot here and would be happy to share my organic home-grown vegetables with my guests. I am currently growing broccoli, collards, and cabbage which will not be available for harvesting until @ November. Do inquire if interested. When visiting the garden, please do not pick the vegetables. Henderson park has everything; walking trails, lakes, waterfalls, serenity - all within walking distance.

"Lullwater Preserve offers many scenic walking and running trail loops nestled within Emory University’s North Decatur campus near Atlanta. The Lullwater Trail passes the Lullwater House mansion, skirts Candler Lake and crosses a span bridge to explore mill beside a tumbling spillway waterfall in a beautiful, wildlife-rich forest."

The place to go for important celebrations of significant life events. Always excellent steakhouse/lobster bar every, single, visit. Steak house is upstairs, lobster bar is downstairs. Top-notch service. Top notch bartenders. I refuse to recommend any other top Atlanta restaurant out of my own personal loyalty to and respect for this place.

"The Atlanta History Center was founded on the big ideas and relentless fascination of 14 Atlantans who were emphatic about our city’s historical relevance in society. In a sense, our organization was created by Atlanta’s biggest fans, and we love that detail. In 1926, these founding members introduced the Atlanta Historical Society into the world with one mission: to help preserve Atlanta’s history. In 1990, after decades of collecting, researching, publishing and celebrating the early stories of our great Southern community, the Atlanta Historical Society and all of its holdings officially became the Atlanta History Center."

Large quality wine selection with great prices. 10% discount off cases of wine. **Do not go on Saturday mornings or afternoons!** -Too crowded, will not be a good first experience, unless you are ok with battling crowds for the best picks of the day.

Getting Around
Suggest MARTA/Lyft/Uber when attending events downtown. Companies contracted by The City of Atlanta are notorious for booting cars and then demanding exorbitant cash fees upfront for removal. -Last I heard, boot removal fees were $75 cash. Downtown hotels charge at least $40 a day for parking.
