Atlanta in a day

The perfect day in Atlanta starts off with Sublime donuts!  This are the best donuts I’ve ever, ever had. I did not get paid to say that, in fact I paid them, for their amazing donuts. Nutella and strawberries and cream are my favorites.  They are the softest and most amazing donuts I’ve ever had and I’ve tried many places including Voodoo in Portland (those were good, these are better!)
Next we headed to the beautiful Piedmont Park. With walking trails, several playgrounds, a dog in park and public pool, there’s something for everyone at this amazing park!

After working up an appetite we headed to The Varsity for lunch.  Their burgers, hotdogs, fries, onion rings and shakes are an Atlanta staple and a must for anyone visiting The ATL.

Our next stop was the High Museum of Art. They had a cool kids installation and the kiddos loved playing there.  The grown ups got a chance to check out some art too.  This was perfect way to cool off and get in a little culture too.

  Next, we headed to Centennial Olympic Park to let the kids run through the fountains. This is always a big hit for the kiddos and it’s close to so many fun tourist stops along with having a great playground and restaurants within walking distance. The only downside: finding parking. 
 Our last stop of the day was at Stone Mountain park for their laser show.  For $15 a car, this is a pretty good deal.  Watching a laser show on the side of the mountain, mixed in with a little history lesson and fireworks, this was the perfect way to end our day in Atlanta!
