How could you miss this?
Spsh way more than that
"For all the growth the city has seen, we are still the city of villages, most of which are disconnected. Woe is the visitor without a Segway or bike, plus a trusty guide, to help them traverse the no man's lands between the neighborhoods. They need someone promising them that past these vacant lots and over this massive freeway, far from their hotels and the Hooters on Peachtree Street, are vibrant places with character."
If I could include a big thumbs-up image here, I would. Well stated. Unfortunately, for many Atlantans it's enough to know that the locals can drive between the vibrant places. Drive-to urbanism.
We could use some good urban infill to connect the vibrant places together -- for the sake of visitors, locals and the city's tax revenue.
I must protest...."Giant Clown" at Burnt Hickory? His name is Scott and he's the owner...oh, the other clown? Atleast no mimes

I suggest paying a bit more attention on the tours you attest to not going on. There are a ton of misconceptions in this post.
It must feel so good to apply hip political correctness to what is, essentially, a fun place to pee. South of the Border is just a bit of Americana. If it's outlived its cultural relevance, that's only because no-one has figured out a more profitable replacement. If you don't care for it, by all means do avoid Niagara Falls and the remains of Rt 66.
Many years ago, as a result of every other room being full, I spent the night in one of the Honeymoon suites. We had a sort of Tiki-themed suite, and it was like waking up in the Tonga Room, in San Francisco. The irony of spending the night with my college roommate, Pete, it didn't take one little bit from the romance of that bizarre interlude.
Dahlonega and Lumpkin County are ready for the Atlanta hipsters of west midtown and Decatur to open up even more eateries, shops and entertainment. The Napa Valley of North Georgia y'all.
had a mixed experience a few years ago. when i first visited they weren't accepting guests, so i stayed at Jekyll. returned a few days later and loved it -- the small lake, the group dinners and the glass house are pretty special. i was happy to do a 'daily chore' like at other hostels (traditionally) but i felt pressured to do more around the place with clean-up work rather than enjoy it as a vacation/retreat. perhaps that was because of the couple managing it at the time.
Lawd, please stop advertising the hostel. It's a sacred space.
one addendum: take the golden isles highway to brunswick rather than I-16. it's like going back in time (in a good way). it's a heck of a beautiful drive.
How is the stupid rap "music" version of The Great Gatsy supposed to be classy?
Absolutely fabulous. My summer is planned.
Dahlonega is a great little town!
this doesn't even show all the great things to do in that town. not to mention it's suggesting everyone an hour north of atlanta is a simple-minded redneck. maybe next time spend more than a day and a half and actually have an open mind.
Yo, did you guys hit up Buckhead after all those cold Miller Lites Bro?
Miller Lite? Good call BRO! Great brew.
I'm excited to see the Sierra Nevada beers starting to show up in Atlanta in cans, so Torpedo would be a great hoppy and canned choice.
I'm also fond of Brooklyn Summer Ale as an easy-drinking beer for the heat. Not a boring lager, not so heavy that you bonk after a couple.
No David you are dumb and wrong.
Be sure to sear the meat to seal in the juices!
