"A-Town, the Capitol of the South" Atlanta by WaRPer

Atlanta Travel Guide: 1,548 reviews and 2,795 photos

College years in A-Town

I consider this city my 3rd home after Bangkok and San Antonio, TX.
Aside from my school's 'Tech Junkies' reputation, there are a couple more reasons I chose to live here. First, it's a big city (not quite a 'metro' tho) with multi-cultural vibes. Second, its mild weather...and last, the lovely people who define "Southern hospitality". After all, I think Atlanta has a lot to offer; Hi-tech facilities blended with slower-pace Southern charm, good (soul) food, and affordable living expenses...what else would I ask for?

    Nice restaurant tips, I think you arrived there when I was there, we had 100 degrees days for 3 days in a row. But I loved the city.
