Atlanta City Guide
Though Atlanta, Georgia is a city in the South, its culture is not strictly Southern anymore; with the influx of Hollywood productions and numerous festivals, it has become a very cosmopolitan city. Los Angeles’ famous Maquillage Makeup Academy has opened a second professional makeup school here and famed nightclub Eddie’s Attic has launched some of this country’s biggest music stars, like Justin Bieber and John Mayer. Add to that a reasonable population of 447,841 and a subtropical climate (with four actual seasons), and you’ll find that Atlanta is an ideal place to live.
Some of Atlanta’s biggest festivals include the Virginia-Highland Summerfest, which celebrates the beginning of summer with art, live music, and food, the Atlanta Film Festival, which boasts being among just twenty-four Academy Award-qualifying festivals in the country, and Dragon Con, which is the biggest Sci-Fi/Fantasy convention in the world.
Dressing up as a zombie or comic book superhero is acceptable during the convention, but where do you hide your costumes and props the rest of the year? In secure and conveniently located storage units, of course.
Pretending to be Batman or Wonder Woman requires a lot of energy, and there’s no better place to replenish your fuel than at The Varsity, the biggest drive-in fast food restaurant in the world. After you eat your body weight in fried pie and glorified bacon cheeseburgers, you may want to head on over to Stone Mountain, where you can hike one of many trails (or ride the Skyride cable car—no judgment) to the top, and enjoy the laser and fireworks show when you return to the base.
In town, Piedmont Park is great for biking, picnicking, and outdoor concerts, and Chastain Park Amphitheater is Atlanta’s largest public park which, besides horse and bike trails, a golf course, and a pool, features concerts by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. To get your groove on, check out Tongue & Groove, a popular nightclub with different types of music each night. For drinks but no dancing, Whisky Mistress is a fun place to hang out with friends.
For a safe and secure place to stash your bikes, fireworks, or orchestral instruments, choose a climate-controlled storage unit in a nearby self-storage facility.
