ATL Shawty!

Every October the divas and I head to the wonderful city of Atlanta, Georgia for the Bank of America Atlanta Football Classic. While we're not cheering on the FAMU Rattlers, we check out all that ATL has to offer.

Where to Stay
The last time we went we stayed at the InterContinental in Buckhead. Nice hotel that is downtown and within easy access to many of Atlanta's hotspots. Any hotel within the Buckhead area is a great idea for your stay in Atlanta.

Where to Go
Our first place always on our list is Gladys Knight's Chicken and Waffles located in downtown Atlanta. The Divas and I look forward to our favorite meal, which is also the restaurants signature dish, the Midnight Train, (chicken and waffles) along with an Uptown (Sweet tea and Lemonade).

When coming to Atlanta, you have to check out the shopping. There is an abundance of malls, outlets and neighborhoods to stop in to. Our favorite is Lenox Square Mall.

What to See
For those looking to experience a little bit of Atlanta's history, stroll over to the house of Martin Luther King, Jr. You can experience the birth place of one of our nation's most influential leaders.

Check out Underground Atlanta to snatch up great deals on souvenirs.
DO Check out:
1.The Coca-Cola Factory
2.The Georgia Aquarium
3. Centinnial Park
4. Six Flags over Georgia
Have any of you Jet-Setters been to Atlanta, share with us some of your favorite ATL hotspots and what you think about the city!
