Things To Do in Atlanta

Cascade Neighborhood

When you can’t afford to do a continental trip, sometimes a local trip to a nearby state can do the trick. This past weekend I went on an impromptu getaway to Atlanta and I had a blast. After departing from the airport, I went to a cute little spot called the Corner Grille. When you walk in, you immediately get a homey industrial vibe with a hint of romance. Candlelight, wood furniture and Sade playing in the background; I ordered the Cajun chicken pasta and it was banging. The sauce alone was impeccable. I loved it so much here I went again for brunch the last day of my trip.

If you are in Atlanta on the weekend, you definitely have to stop by Spice House Cascade. I lived my best life there; the food was on point and so were the drinks. They had live music and the singer, @kariepps, was amazing. She gave me Doja Cat vibes and the band accompanying her was equally yoked in skill. She mesmerized the crowd with her voice. Her soulful sound gave me goosebumps. Crowd participation was both spontaneous and encouraged. We danced and sang until she finished her set. Then Afrobeats came on and it was a wrap, I had to get up and show out 😂. (check out my video on IG, 😂 shameless plug)

Wall Art Crawl

Now although no Wynwood (no shade 😂), Atlanta has its share of unique art walls. Although, in However, there in different areas, hence some people call it a wall art crawl but I call it a wall art drive 😂. If your planning to walk wear comfortable shoes and mentally prepare for the trek ahead. I’ve always had an excitement when it comes to treasure hunts and the journey to find these murals reminded me of just that. Check out the pictures below.

Ponce City Market

An industrial warehouse vibe turned chic filled with super cute boutiques, restaurants and mini-cafes. Check out the history behind Ponce City Market here https://poncecitymarket.com/our-story/history/. The market was decorated with lively Halloween decor. This spot has something for everyone whether you're a wino, dessertholic, healthy conscientious eater or a burger connoisseur. 

Atlanta Botanical Gardens

Last stop on the trip was the beautiful Atlanta Botanical Garden. What a great way to end the trip, tranquil, vibrant and full of gorgeous mosai culture. I had so much fun, cartwheeling in the open spaces, taking amazing pictures and enjoying the scenery. The uniqueness and detailing of these pieces were really out of this world. The garden itself is huge and has so many bridges, underpasses, and passageways. I even took a quick jog on the canopy. I was so impressed and it really brought the trip to a soft and easy conclusion.
